COMPANION TO CORE SURGERY: Multiple Choice Questions that Teach by Chibundu Emmanuel Ohanaka

cover - companion to core surgery



Objective methods of assessing candidates are currently occupying the front-burner in both undergraduate and postgraduate examinations in Medicine. This book is meant to help surgical trainees scale this difficult, but important hurdle.

The book comprises of over 2000 (two thousand) carefully-selected multiple choice questions and has endeavoured to cover all the surgical subspecialties. In addition, sample questions in the surgical-related subspecialties of Anaesthesia, Radiology and Ophthalmology have been included.

Three forms of questions are included, in line with the format of multiple choice questions in surgical examinations: true/false, single/best answer and matching questions respectively. In addition to providing answers to the questions, the author has, where necessary, added some relevant explanatory notes; hence the sobriquet: multiple choice questions that teach.

This book will, therefore, prove invaluable to both undergraduate and postgraduate candidates whose examinations encompass the entire gamut of surgical sub-specialties as well as other surgical-related disciplines.
