Dr.Pestana’s Surgery Notes For USMLE Step 2 CK Third Edition pdf

Surgery is an art, more than a science. There are multiple ways to diagnose and treat patients. Regional variations. Institutional preferences. Evolving criteria. Students are bewildered when they read two different books and are given different advice. They want to know which is the correct answer for the exam. Will they have to choose between two versions of the truth? By contrast, the questions in this Dr.Pestana’s Surgery Notes For USMLE Step 2 CK Third Edition book are primarily designed for content review and are abbreviated versions of the longer, ritualized format of the actual USMLE or shelf exam questions.

They are not cluttered with vital signs or other facts that will not help. Rather, these questions contain only the key combination of facts that should be immediately recognized by an astute clinician.Carlos Pestana, MD, PhD, is currently an emeritus professor of surgery at the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio. A native of the Canary Islands, Spain, Dr. Pestana graduated from medical school in Mexico City, ranking #1 in his class, and subsequently received a doctorate in surgery from the University of Minnesota, in conjunction with a 5-year surgical residency at the Mayo Clinic.
