"First Exposure" books give you: just the right amount of information to read and absorb during your clerkship; an orientation to each specialty and the ways it differs from other specialties; what you can expect to get from your clerkship; clinically helpful information on the procedures you will see and perform; a breakdown of the "Chief Complaints" you are most likely to encounter, with a table of "Don't-Miss Diagnoses"; and essential information on common diseases and conditions seen in each specialty. Adding value to the clerkship experience - that's what "First Exposure" is all about.
