Mayo Clinic Gastroenterology and Hepatology Board Review 3rd Edition PDF
9.22 MB PDF
Gastroenterology and hepatology encompass a large assortment of organs with diverse structure and function that potentially are afflicted by a multiplicity of disease processes. We have designed the revised edition of the Mayo Clinic Gastroenterology and Hepatology Board Review book and course to assist physicians-in-training who are preparing for the gastroenterology board examination and the growing number of gastroenterologists who are awaiting recertification. The book is not intended to replace the more encyclopedic textbooks of gastroenterology, hepatology, pathology, endoscopy, nutrition, and radiology now available. Nor is it intended to serve as an “update” to physicians who are looking for the newest advances in the science and art of gastroenterology and hepatology. Instead, this book is intended to provide a core of essential knowledge in gastroenterology, hepatology, and integral related areas of pathology, endoscopy, nutrition, and radiology. Clinical knowledge related to diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to patient management is emphasized. Case-based presentations and multiple short board-examination–type, single best-answer questions with annotated answers are featured. As such, this text also is intended to be used by medical students and residents for their clerkships during rotations in internal medicine and gastroenterology and by gastroenterology fellows in training. Physicians in practice should find this book to be a practical review to consolidate their knowledge in gastroenterology and hepatology.
The book is organized by subspecialty topics, including esophageal disorders, gastroduodenal disorders, small-bowel disease and nutrition, colonic disorders, pancreaticobiliary disease, liver disease, and miscellaneous disorders. Numerous color and black-and-white figures are used to illustrate the text. Each subspecialty section concludes with a chapter containing multiple board examination-type, single best-answer multiple-choice questions with annotated answers. Materials in the questions and answers are not included in the index. The faculty responsible for the book at the time of its production are all Mayo Clinic gastroenterologists and hepatologists who spend most of their time caring for patients, but who also have a commitment to teaching medical students, house-officers, fellows, nurses, and physicians. Most of the faculty have particular interests in subspecialty areas of clinical gastroenterology and hepatology, providing broad expertise.

We also want to give special thanks to our secretaries and to Dr. Greg Gores for his ongoing enthusiasm and support for our faculty and teaching mission.
