Shelf Review

What’s the key to doing well on the clerkship shelf exams?

For starters, review this High Yield Shelf Review Information document. Try to understand the concepts and memorize this document before the test and you will be successful. Make sure you scroll through all the tabs on the sheet.

Next, read this review of topics and question types that appear on the shelf exam. You should read through this early in the rotation so you understand how the questions are written, and then read it again just before the test. Reading through this before you start doing practice questions can be helpful too as it will clue you in to hot topics covered on the exam. What you see repetitively on your shelf exam will come back again as high yield topics for your STEP/LEVEL exams.

In addition, Case Files for Ob/Gyn is one of the best review books for the course, along with your standard textbook.

Be sure to do all the practice quizzes for the Shelf.

The Divine Interventions podcast and YouTube for OB/GYN shelf and STEP/LEVEL review is a good resource as well.
