Written at the clerkship level, this book is a comprehensive introduction to family medicine. It is organized into three sectionsâprinciples of family medicine, preventive care, and common problemsâand includes chapters on evidence-based medicine and complementary therapies. The text has a user-friendly writing style, focuses on common clinical problems, and uses case studies to show practical applications of key concepts. This edition features an updated art program, more illustrations, summaries, consistent headings, greater emphasis on evidence-based care, and more diverse family physician profiles representing varied practice settings.
A companion Website offers the fully searchable text, 75 study questions, and an ExamKit of more than 300 questions with which faculty can generate tests.
