Specifically designed to help candidates revise for the MRCS exam, this book features 250 extended matching questions divided into 96 themes, covering the whole syllabus. Containing everything candidates need to pass the MRCS Part A EMQ section of the exam, the book focuses intensively on topics relating to principles of surgery-in-general, including peri-operative care, post-operative management and critical care, surgical technique and technology, management and legal issues in surgery, clinical microbiology, emergency medicine and trauma management, and principles of surgical oncology.
