The first comprehensive psychiatry review textbook, designed expressly for the Canadian market, Psychiatry Review and Canadian Certification Exam Preparation Guide is the resource residents and psychiatrists need to master the qualifying examinations in psychiatry of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. These exams are required for certification both for graduating residents and most foreign-trained psychiatrists seeking to practice in Canada. This new volume, based on The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Review Guide for Psychiatry, has been carefully edited to include only material relevant to the Canadian exam. References have been taken from both the U.S. and Canadian psychiatric literature, and laboratory units, medication names and doses, and the language used have been edited to be consistent with Canadian psychiatry. The volume takes the reader from the basic sciences comprising the foundation of psychiatry, through the psychiatric interview and other diagnostic topics, to syndrome-specific chapters paralleling DSM-IV-TR, and finally to current treatment options. Rounding out the review is a 200-question practice exam that reflects the structure of the actual board examinations. Although no substitute for quality medical and residency training, Psychiatry Review and Canadian Certification Exam Preparation Guide will help the prospective exam-taker ameliorate weaknesses and enhance strengths in preparation for a successful exam experience.
