About this book

Introduction

This book is a thorough and easy-to-use guide to gynecology for residents preparing for their CREOG and board examinations. Books available for gynecology residents are generally either clinically directed or academically based. The books in the first group are usually brief, suitable as handbooks for residents to use during daily practice. These books, however, do not provide adequate background information to prepare for CREOG or ABOG board examinations. The more academically-focused books provide detailed background, but do not offer simple and quick assistance during daily practice or studying. This book aims to provide the most beneficial parts of both products.

Throughout, the material is simplified and well-organized to provide an excellent resource for clinical practice, with ample use of bullets and key points. The content is also comprehensive, providing the appropriate background knowledge and a systematic approach that makes it an excellent source for the board examination. Topics are divided into four sections: general gynecology, urogynecology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and gynecology oncology. Chapters then cover all major topics in each area, including uterine fibroids, polycystic ovary syndrome, and genital infections. Each chapter additionally includes multiple choice questions for residents to test their knowledge of the material.

This is an ideal guide for residents in OBGYN and practicing gynecologists looking for a refresher and quick reference.

Reviews

“This book targets OB-GYN residents and practicing OB-GYN generalists; however, it is also suitable for family practitioners and internists who provide office care to women. … This book does a good job at bridging the gap between the textbook and clinical pocket guide and provides a resource that fits its intended purpose.” (Stephanie Chang, Doody’s Book Reviews, October 9, 2020)
