Hi Everyone,

 

I will be starting clinical rotations in a a few months and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for books or reading material for specific rotations or just in general that were helpful enhance the learning process and prepare for the PANCE. Any tips or suggestions would be helpful! Thanks!

My go to resources were:

 

-the Turkey Book: great prep guide before specific rotations; I usually reviewed the rotation specialty the weekend before starting a new rotation.

-PDF of high yield shelf notes: loved this resource, especially for my surgery, psych, and peds rotations; I used this to supplement my own study materials

-PANCE prep pearls and the USMLE Step 2 CK book: during clinical year, I personally reached for the USMLE book more, but relied on PANCE prep pearls for studying for end of rotation tests

 

-other High yield PDFs (internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery): good for quick review, buzzwords, and recognizing common associations

-Question banks: my school gave us access to ExamMaster, so I would try to quiz myself as much as possible

Surgery: Surgical Recall. Has been pretty useful for this rotation, would be completely lost without it.
