The text is written in a Socratic, "question-and-answer" format which is designed to help readers absorb and retain knowledge. The authors combine the latest techniques, devices, clinical research trials, future directions, and innovation ideas into a single, practical, and accessible study and practice resource." -- Provided by publisher.

Code of Medical Ethics of the American Medical Association

"The Annotations, an important research and reference tool, in the AMA Code has been significantly updated to include more up-to-date and relevant cases, as well as the removal of outdated cases. This modernized and updated edition of the AMA Code breathes new energy into this living document, while staying true to what it means to be a good physician." -- Provided by publisher.

Michigan Manual of Plastic Surgery

"Covering the full range of clinical concerns encountered by today's plastic surgeons, Michigan Manual of Plastic Surgery, Third Edition, remains a portable, practical manual in this fast-changing field. Editors David L. Brown, Widya Adidharma, and Geoffrey E. Hespe, use an easy-to-follow bulleted format to provide expert guidance on fundamental principles and techniques of plastic surgery for skin and soft tissue lesions, the head and neck, facial reconstruction, craniofacial concerns, aesthetic surgery, and surgeries of the breast, hand and upper extremity, trunk, lower extremity, genitalia, and burns." -- Provided by publisher.

Graphic Public Health

"As we confront the challenges of emerging diseases, environmental health threats, and gaps in health equity, medical professionals need versatile communication tools that help people make informed decisions and engage them in constructive conversations about the health of their communities. This book illuminates the power of comics to meet that need. Graphic Public Health demonstrates the range and potential of comics to address topics such as immunization promotion, outbreak prevention, gun violence, opioid addiction prevention, and climate change. More than a collection of cartoons, this book connects comics with fundamentals of health communication and discusses why the form can be uniquely effective for these purposes."  -- Provided by publisher.
