Review of Surgery: Basic Science and Clinical Topics for ABSITE

Front Cover
Gamal Mostafa, Cathey Lamont, Frederick L. Greene
Springer Science & Business Media, Dec 6, 2006 - Medical - 456 pages

The American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination (ABSITE) is taken annually by more than 7000 general surgery residents nationwide to ensure that specific learning objectives are being met in their training. Recent exams have emphasized basic science and Review of Surgery: Basic Science and Clinical Topics for ABSITE is written with that in mind. Each chapter is a short summary of a basic science or clinical topic and includes hundreds of related questions like those found on ABSITE. The book is targeted to trainees at various levels and also can be used to prepare for the qualifying (written) and certifying (oral) exams given by the American Board of Surgery upon completion of training. (This book will also serve as a supplemental review for non-U.S. trained surgeons seeking U.S. credentials to practice.)

About the author (2006)

Dr. Greene, the Springer author responsible for the highly successful AJCC product line as well as Minimally Invasive Cancer Management, is also a program director with vast experience in training general surgery residents. His co-author, Gamal Mostafa, is currently a fellow in the program who will be staying on to practice with Dr. Greene at Carolinas Medical Center. Contributors will include residents and fellows in the same training program to offer a unified and consistent approach to the material. The book is designed as a study guide for the annual American Board of Surgery In-Training Exam (ABSITE), given to surgical residents each of their 5 years of residency. While there are a number of competing books on this topic, Drs. Mostafa and Greene believe there is a need for a more innovative product that includes not only concisely written overviews of each topic covered on the exam but also a self-test aspect, which in this case is an accompanying with hundreds of sample questions.
