This program  gives you the detailed understanding of clinical signs, symptoms and laboratory test results to nail the clinically oriented questions on both Step I and Step II of the boards.  It is also a tremendous help in preparing to become a superb diagnostician and in impressing your preceptors by presenting patients with understanding and confidence.
