A must read for educators and learners. A down-to-earth guide created to assist the student/ graduate who is preparing for his professional examinations in surgery, and practitioners who want to update/refresh their knowledge of relevant topics in the art of surgical practice. Presented in an unparalleled, refreshing format, the book provides many helpful ideas on crafting, clerkship and presentation, diagnosis, patient-work-up, and patient management. It is based on the author's years of advising graduate students so that the task of successfully completing a professional training in surgery can be empowering and enjoyable. This book provides extremely helpful insights into the heart and soul of education - the personal commitment and involvement of one who has dedicated himself to the wonderful, joyous, rewarding, yet sometimes exasperating, task of helping people learn, grow, and develop. Fascinated by his own inquisitive desire to learn, the author has devoted his professional career to awakening that same spirit in others. His ability to ask questions, challenge ideas and encourage reflection has long been a hallmark of his teaching at the University of Jos.
