Surgery Clerkship Must-Have for Medical Students


I bought this book on the recommendation of my senior resident at the beginning of my surgery clerkship, and it turned out to be a great purchase. Note: I am applying into pediatrics residencies, so my goal during the surgery rotation was just to survive - I was NOT a gunner. However, ALL of my classmates ended up borrowing this book to look at before going in on cases. It covers all of the surgeries you'll scrub in on. It really is perfect prep for the O.R. and contains all the information you are expected to know by pimping surgeons. I really liked the way it is organized - easy to read, written in sentences (I find it hard to study from just bullet points.) It also contains plenty of illustrations and fits in your white coat pocket. Out of all the books that I've used on my core clerkships, this one was probably the most useful. It might not be sufficient for the shelf exam on its own though - I supplemented it with a book of practice questions (Lange Q&A) and actually ended up doing well on the exam. (Even though I was NOT a fan of the surgery clerkship in general!)

Classic for the surgical rounds


a Classic book, for the surgical rotation,neatly arranged, useful and packed with all the hands on essential info to help medical students and first year residents a very concise review with no didactic mentally exhaustive buzz boxes that keeps one confused after reading whether he should do it or not ( sort of its my way or the high way) which is useful early on to establish the foundation and later on u can add all the argumentative state of the art articles. that is a hit and run handbook, gives the basic knowledge in a clear way and does not address the pathophysiology or the various modalities of treatment, so it might be inappropriate for test preparation, it was not intended for that in the first place, so it is a very nice handbook whose authors did not forget about this fact while writing it.

A great review


Excellent review book for the wards, well organized without too many unnecessary details. Highly rercommended.

Waste for med students


Not as useful for the surgical rotation I was lead to believe. No anatomy diagrams, only descriptions, and too big to really fit in a white coat pocket. Get the pocket medicine for surgery and you'll be much happier.

Five Stars



Not very helpful for surgery rotation


Outdated in few topics. Doesn't give the information you would want on a surgical rotation for instance diverticulitis is a very small topic that doesn't even cover the Henchy classification. I returned this book and used Sabiston's and case files for Surgery.

Four Stars
