NMS Pediatrics, Fifth Edition is the ideal reference and review for medical students in the pediatrics clerkship. The concise, outline-format coverage of essentials and end-of-chapter USMLE-style questions offer excellent preparation for the shelf/end-of-rotation exam and USMLE.

This thoroughly updated edition focuses on areas emphasized in the most current Council on Medical Student Education in Pediatrics (COMSEP) curriculum. The revised questions better reflect the level of difficulty of shelf/end-of-rotation exams. The book has a new two-color design and wider margins for notes.

A companion Website offers the fully searchable text, case studies, and a comprehensive examination.
