Experience with clinical cases is key to excelling on the USMLE Step 1 and shelf exams, and ultimately to providing patients with competent clinical care. Case Files: Neuroscience provides 49 true-to-life cases that illustrate essential concepts in this field. Each case includes an easy-to understand discussion correlated to essential basic science concepts, definitions of key terms, neuroscience pearls, and USMLE-style review questions. With Case Files, you’ll learn instead of memorize.

Key Features
  • Learn from 49 high-yield cases, each with board-style questions and key-point pearls
  • Master complex concepts through clear and concise discussions
  • Practice with review questions to reinforce learning
  • Polish your approach to clinical problem-solving
  • Perfect for medical, physical therapy, and neuroscience students preparing for course exams and the Boards
