For medical students taking their first course in psychiatry or entering their first clinical clerkship, their early encounters with psychiatric patients and their need to master vast amounts of new information on complicated illnesses can be a bewildering, grueling, and intimidating experience.

Fortunately, these newcomers have a reliable and trusted source that makes psychiatry more accessible to them. Widely used in medical schools and allied mental health curricula, the third edition of Psychiatry for Medical Students is the standard against which all psychiatric texts for beginning medical students are measured. This popular book gives medical students, primary care physicians, nurses, social workers, and psychologists a jargon-free introduction to the basics, including topics such as schizophrenia, electroconvulsive therapy, transference, and tranquilizers. The text also helps the reader develop the basic skills needed to carry out a diagnostic evaluation and provides systematic coverage of common psychiatric disorders, groups of patients, specialized psychiatric fields, special problems encountered among patients with a broad range of psychiatric conditions, and psychotherapies and somatic therapies. This updated edition incorporates the changes in DSM-IV and contains discussions of recent developments throughout the field. Filled with new references and the latest research, this book can be used as a quick reference during clinical work and a starting point for further reading.

About the Author:

Robert J. Waldinger, M.D., is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard University Medical School, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Review:

"Teaching medical students basic diagnostic and management principles in psychiatry is fundamental to the development of the fully trained physician. In the third edition of Psychiatry for Medical Students, Dr. Waldinger continues to provide a comprehensive overview of major syndromes, patient populations, and relevant treatment modalities. This is an outstanding book for medical students and an invaluable tool for medical educators."-- "Carol A. Bernstein, M.D., Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Director, Residency Training in Psychiatry, New York University Medical Center, New York, New York"

"It is a very comprehensive in scope, and in general the content is eclectic in orientation and would be considered by most psychiatrists as reflecting an acceptable main stream approach to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric illness."-- "Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry"

"[Dr. Waldinger] has written a lean and muscular book that nicely summarizes just about everything most students will want to learn while taking their psychopathology course and psychiatry clerkship. The book is beautifully organized and written, and I could not find one wasted word."-- "American Journal of Psychiatry"
