Exam Master – COMLEX

Richard Saldivar Library News

As of March 1, ExamMaster will remove the COMLEX 1 outline and the COMLEX Learning Modules​.​

​ExamMaster made the decision to no longer support COMLEX 1 and the COMLEX Learning Modules as ​many of the questions are outdated and are no longer relevant. ​ ​

Any exams created with COMLEX content before March 1 will be saved and can be taken after this date.​ You can make several smaller exams or one large exam from the outline to suit your needs.

If you need assistance in creating exams or have any questions, please contact your campus library.

New Textbook – Osborn’s Brain

Skye Bickett Library News, New Resources

The PCOM Library is pleased to provide access to the newest edition of Obsorn’s Brain by Dr. Anne G. Osborn.

Thanks to all who provided feedback.

This title provides a solid framework for understanding the complex subject of brain imaging when studied cover to cover. It combines essential anatomy with gross pathology and imaging, clearly demonstrating why and how diseases appear the way they do.

The textbook begins with emergent topics such as trauma, non-traumatic hemorrhage, stroke, and vascular lesions, then covers infections, demyelinating and inflammatory diseases, neoplasms, toxic-metabolic-degenerative disorders, and congenital brain malformations.

It contains over 4,000 stunning, high-resolution radiologic images and medical illustrations, all of which are annotated to describe the most clinically significant features. Summary boxes are also provided throughout the text for quick review of essential facts, as well as the most recent and up-to-date references available.

Osborn’s Brain helps readers think clearly about diagnoses, types of diagnoses, and the various pathologies that can affect the brain.
