About this product
- DescriptionThe core clinical competencies in anesthesiology can be pretty blurry - just how do they apply to real life? This book answers this question, incorporating the core clinical competencies into an engaging format that anesthesiologists like - case studies. So, far from being a 'dry and dusty volume of forgotten lore', this book actually makes learning the competencies fun! Written in the same engaging style as a number of other anesthesia books (specifically, the Board Stiff opus) by leading anesthesiologists from leading medical centers across the United States, this book will bring the core clinical competencies to life for medical students.
