Howdy! Since many students don’t know what to study for the exam, I decided to post the most important topics to cover.
The most important topics have been made into a list by Dr. Rawa Muhsin, here it is:
You can study these topics in the handouts or a concise book like the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Surgery.
Note: in addition to the above topics, intracranial hematomas, skull fractures & shunts are important for neurosurgery.
Note: the contents (i.e. amount of Na, Cl…etc) of the fluid types are required for this exam.
