The latest edition of this popular textbook on the behavioral and social sciences in medicine has been fully revised and updated to meet the latest teaching recommendations by the National Academy of Medicine (NAM).

It is an invaluable resource for behavioral science foundation courses and exam preparation in the fields of medicine and health, including the USMLE Step 1. Its 23 chapters are divided into five core sections: mind–body interactions in health and disease, patient behavior, the physician’s role, physician–patient interactions, and social and cultural issues in health care.

Under the careful guidance and editing of Danny Wedding, PhD, Distinguished Consulting Faculty Member, Saybrook University, Oakland, CA, and Margaret L. Stuber, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA, nearly 40 leading educators from major medical faculties have contributed to produce this well-designed textbook.

The following unique features of Behavior and Medicine make it one of the most popular textbooks for teaching behavioral sciences:

  • Based on the core topics recommended by the NAM
  • Numerous case examples, tables, charts, and boxes for quick access to information
  • Resources for students and instructors, including USMLE-style review Q & As
  • Specific “Tips for the Step” in each chapter guide learning
  • The use of works of art, poetry, and aphorisms “humanize” the material
  • Comprehensive, trustworthy, and up-to-date
