Review quote

The sequential nature of this book, along with brief but useful discussions of areas vital to the understanding and maintenance of a residency or medical student education program, make it particularly easy to use, either by individual chapter or from start to finish. The chapters regarding the accreditation process and recruitment of residents are very informative, and tend to provide the right amount of detail without overwhelming the reader. As a new training director, I will undoubtedly use this as a reference while wading through what can be confusing and intimidating tasks for a novice to this area of academia. * Doody's Review Service *show more
