MCQs in Psychiatry for Medical Students

MCQs in Psychiatry for Medical Students is an invaluable collection of multiple choice questions (MCQs) and extending matching item (EMI) questions, covering all areas in psychiatry. Written to match the current style of university exam questions, it is an essential tool for anyone preparing for undergraduate exams.

MCQs are the ‘best of five’ style. Questions are grouped by subject and get progressively harder within each chapter. The answers are given along with detailed explanations, plus references to core texts and suggestions for further reading.

The book offers:

  • Up-to-date ‘best of five’ MCQs, plus EMI psychiatry questions, in a self-test format, written by psychiatrists qualified in clinical education.
  • Questions that are in keeping with the latest research and clinical concepts in psychiatry.
  • Questions written in the format used for university exams in modern medical curricula.

Students will find this an easy-to-use and reliable book that will help them optimise their performance on undergraduate exams.

MCQs and EMIs are used for undergraduate psychiatry written exams in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Medical students from other countries will benefit from the self-test format of this book as practising MCQs is a superb way to revise and reinforce knowledge. The book will also be of interest to postgraduate trainees in psychiatry and more senior clinicians for the purposes of revision.

Key readership: All medical students.
