Family Medicine Topics on Firecracker

What you need to master to prepare for your exam

If you are preparing for your family medicine clerkship/shelf exam, we recommend you flag the following topics as "current" early in your clerkship, so they show up in your "Today's Questions". If you see something in the clinic that is not on this list, we encourage you to mark that material as "current" as well. Remember that you also initiate topic-specific quizzes on any of these topics from your 'Study Something Specific' tab.
