This popular resource continues to offer step-by-step guidance on how to evaluate, diagnose, and manage a wide range of obstetric and gynecologic disorders. The 4th Edition of this bestseller has been completely revised and reorganized to present a more up-to-date approach to the field, with less emphasis on traditional hospital-based practice. It uses the APGO/CREOG curriculum objectives as a framework, with a special emphasis on women's health issues. A new, full-color design with many illustrations and photographs complements the text. Plus, a free downloadable PDA software program provides a complete guide to the most common disorders.

Key Features

  • Provides a strong clinical orientation.
  • Focuses on the Ob/Gyn clerkship.
