You'll also need to demonstrate insight, included in the following four key success factors, by- Understanding that the exam measures their clinical, not theoretical, knowledge of psychiatry. - Preparing thoroughly (e.g., if you mention a specific medication, be ready to discuss its indications, dosage range, and therapeutic and side effects). - Showing empathy for the patient by taking a few moments to establish rapport and using reassuring statements that show care and compassion. - Being open and direct in a manner that fosters a collegial--not an inadvertently adversarial--relationship with the examiners. The author thoughtfully includes algorithms for "middle-of-the-road" treatment protocols--especially useful if you have only limited experience with a particular patient group. By combining its distinct advantage over lengthier psychiatry textbooks and references with both the knowledge and the insight so essential to success on this crucial exam, this compact volume proves once again that it is, quite simply, the definitive study guide for all oral board examination more
