  • Description
    NOW UPDATED TO DSM-5! Behavioral Science in Medicine introduces medical students to the science of human behavior. Organized to mirror the behavioral science/psychiatry course taught in the first two years, this text effectively teaches the major concepts of this complex subject and prepares students for board exams. The Second Edition is appropriate for courses in Behavioral Science alone but also for courses that merge Behavioral Science and Neuroscience. The increased depth of coverage of psychiatric illness, substance abuse, and pediatric psychiatry, also makes the Second Edition appropriate for use in Clinical Psychiatry courses in the third and fourth year.
    • Chapter-opening outlines list the major topics covered
    • Information presented according to the classifications and terminology of the DSM-5
    • Emphasis placed on the concepts tested on Steps 1 & 2 of the USMLE
    • Clinical case scenarios and USMLE-style questions with answers and explanations included for each chapter

  • Editorial Reviews
    "This book is impressive in its scope, addressing the biological and psychological bases of behavior throughout the life cycle, succinctly reviewing psychopathology and social behavior. What makes the book great is at the end, where there are helpful discussions of the doctor-patient relationship, complicated ethical and legal matters, the history of healthcare delivery systems, as well as the explanations, examples, and easy to understand charts in the appendix on medical epidemiology and biostatistics."
