Review of Preventive & Social Medicine (Including Biostatistics)

by Vivek Jain

While preparing for PG entrance examination, the most of the preventive and social medicine (PSM) multiple choice questions (MCQs), related text and even the referenced answers given in books were invariably unable to satisfy a student. Most of the times, there were questions from ‘topics not given in standard textbooks’. Every year there were ‘new unheard questions from unexplored fields’, overlapping choices of MCQs from other fields of medicine accompanied with a futile search for ‘recent most data of Public Health Statistics’, etc. So, there is no denying the fact that ‘PSM is of paramount importance’ to successfully tackle any PG entrance examination. In this book, each chapter divided into topics and sub-topics, Theory and MCQs arranged section-wise for more comprehensive understanding of topics. In theory, important previous years MCQs highlighted (asQ) and must-know facts given separately. The book includes PG Entrance Examination MCQs of AIIMS (1991–2015) and AIPGME (1991–2012 + “Recent MCQs”) with referenced, authenticated, full explanatory answers. Solved explanatory MCQs from DPG, PGI, JIPMER PG Entrance Examinations (2000–2015) added to help students grasp subject better. Over 3,000 solved MCQs from UPSC CMS and Several State Medical PG Entrance Examinations added for wider coverage. Recent most changes in National Health Programs with updates in communicable and non-communicable diseases provided for a competitive edge. Many answers are followed by a section on ‘Also Remember’ – A compilation of various important noteworthy points based on previous questions from several fields. Golden points have been included for a quick revision just before the examination. Several annexures have been included towards the start of the book to given the student an edge over others.
