    I know this is somewhat covered in the sticky section- but since the forum is relatively quiet, thought I'd pose the question- what are the must have texts in PM&R, and why?

    How would you approach the mastery of the field in terms of self study?

    any thoughts?

    I would say bare minimum:

    pocketpedia
    delisa or braddom
    a good EMG book - I have preston and shapiro
    Cuccurullo
    McGee or another Ortho physical exam book (Hoppenfeld's atlas is a plus)
    A good anatomy book - Hollinshead, etc.

    Neccessities:
    - Cuccarullo (the clear #1 book)
    - Pocketpedia
    - Braddom

    Worth getting if you have interest:
    - Preston and Shapiro for EMGs
    - Magee for Physical Exam
    - Bogduk's anatomy of the lumbo-sacral spine if you have an interest in spine

    Other books I've used a lot and I am glad I have
    - Buschbacher's books (nerve conduction manual, sports medicine, MSK)
    - Malanga's physical exam book
    - PM+R secrets
    - Dumitriu's EMG masterpiece
    - Freddie Fu's sports medicine text
    - Kaplan's MSK MRI book
    - Greenspan's MSK radiology book
    - Kirschblum's SCI text (I used it more as a resident- don't use it as a fellow, but it would be great if I was an SCI fellow)
    - Moore's textbook of anatomy
    - Hollinshead's big anatomy text (the old hardcover edition. I am not a huge fan of the paperback version)
    - Delisa's EMG and NCV manual
