Our goal is to provide an essential resource complementing the speed of online reviews (eg, WebPath) and the rich detail of Robbins & Cotran Pathologic Basis of Disease. We organized USMLE Road Map: Pathology like a routine physical examination, including the clinical presentation, diagnostic features, and prognostic indications of conditions encountered on the wards and on the boards. We hope you find this approach to pathology effective.
It takes a village to prepare a manuscript of this scope and depth.
