For the American (ASSH), British (BSSH) and European (FESSH) Advanced Hand Diploma, FRCS (Orth) and FRCS (Plast) Examinations
This book is designed to help any surgeon or surgical trainee with an interest in hand surgery prepare for the American (ASSH), British (BSSH) or European (FESSH) Advanced Hand Diploma Examinations, and the FRCS (Plast) and FRCS (Orth) Examinations. The 300 multiple choice questions in this book cover the breadth of hand surgery including basic sciences and anatomy, soft tissues, tendons, fractures, arthritis, peripheral nerve, congenital hands, and other miscellaneous topics. The questions are based on the current research and clinical practice, and they are designed to test the candidate's knowledge of the most important concepts in advanced hand surgery, rather than concentrate on the candidate’s ability to memorise. The questions also focus on clinical application and higher order thinking. High level speciality surgical exams can be daunting, prior to answering any question, it is always good to take a step back and evaluate the situation, and think broadly, considering every possibility and put yourself in a real clinical scenario where you would use your clinical acumen and instinct along with your gained knowledge and experience to formulate an intelligent answer. This book will help you do that through the explanations and thought processes that go into each question and answer.
