'Emergency Medicine MCQs', a practical new text from Elsevier Australia, looks likely to become an indispensible study aid for emergency medicine trainees throughout Australasia.
Packed with more than 750 multiple-choice questions, 'Emergency Medicine MCQs' is a handy self-assessment tool, designed to assist trainees as they expand and refine their knowledge of emergency medicine. Plus, with questions covering both core and non-core areas in the Australasian Emergency Medicine Fellowship, Emergency Medicine MCQs will go a long way towards helping trainees pass the Australasian Emergency Medicine Fellowship examination (FACEM).
The curriculum is divided into three main areas where trainees require expert level of knowledge, high level of knowledge and general level of knowledge. Using this useful medical resource, trainees can revise alone or with their peers, using the questions to identify the areas of emergency medicine in which they need further development.
Filled with evidence-based, clinically oriented material, with references to currently relevant literature, 'Emergency Medicine MCQs' addresses important clinical problems encountered in everyday emergency medicine practice. These range from cardiovascular emergencies through to obstetric and gynaecology emergencies, disaster management and toxicology.
Students who purchase this emergency medicine text can further enhance their learning with an accompanying app. This separate product contains 180 randomised multiple-choice questions on all the topics within the book, and makes a great companion to the text.

Indeed, with its impressive breadth of content it promises to be an excellent resource for anyone preparing for a career at medicine’s front line.
