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
