How to ace the surgery shelf exam

How to ace the surgery shelf exam

The surgery shelf exam is tough and we all know it. I trust that you are interested in honoring the rotation since you are probably interested in going into surgery. Even if you are not interested in surgery, I believe you are at least interested in doing well on your rotation, and getting honors in as many rotations as possible. If so, you should get this book, “SURGERY SHELF EXAM REVIEW QUESTIONS” which reviews key topics that are tested each year on the exam.

If you are a medical student who wants to get honors on your surgery rotation, and want to get a high score on the surgery shelf exam, this book may be helpful to you. This book mostly covers topics in hematology, hernias, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, surgical oncology, thoracic surgery, trauma, urology, and vascular surgery.
