Summary: Think like an experienced clinician and be better prepared for pediatrics practice. Pediatrics: A Competency-Based Companion, by Maureen C. McMahon, MD and Glenn R. Stryjewski, MD, MPH, is designed to teach you to think like an experienced clinician. The only text written in the framework of the Core Competencies developed by the ACGME, its case-based approach illustrates the thought processes that effective practitioners use to approach and evaluate common pediatric presentations. Learning is easy through an intuitive, practical organization ... a concise, high-yield presentation ... graphs, tables, and other at-a-glance features, such as Professors' Pearls" that provide cases with questions and annotated answers ... and a framework that allows you to track your progress and that of your patients in relation to ACGME and AAMC expectations. A convenient pocket-sized format enables you to review the material on the go, and online access via Student Consult includes online extras such as "Integration Links" to bonus content in other Student Consult titles, a Competency Self-Assessment Log, Vertical Reads, and much more. - Publisher.
