Questions and Answers in Pain Medicine: A Guide to Board Exams fulfills the need for a resource that is similar to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) board examination in the US as well as international equivalents. It utilizes a fully Q&A approach which is how many students prefer to study. Written by a physician who has recently passed the ACGME written board exam and the founder of a pain management fellowship program for nearly 20 years, the authors provide valuable insight for successfully undertaking board examinations in pain medicine.
