    What do palliative care fellows use to study for boards?

    On amazon I see some sample test kindle books for sale, but not many books for study. Is there something that fellows commonly use to study for boards, or review courses?

    I was wondering the same thing. My boards are this November. I am planning to take the board review course in August in Minnesota. I also hear that HPM Fast is a good resource. It has 4 modules with 25 questions each on Pediatric, Hospice regulatory, prognostication and psychiatry. As far as books are concerned, the primer for palliative care is a good resource. Also HPM Pass is a set of 150 practice questions. Essential Learning module set has 9 books and I have read one of them in older edition and they are okay. Good luck to you and if you hear of other good sources, do let me know.

    I did HPM Pass and Fast, I reviewed Fast Facts, and there were some board type questions I found on PalliMed, I also did the 9 book module.

    First of all, you must go to the faculty members, discuss the things with them get some notes on their experiences. Secondly, you can find some e-books or student's presentations on slideshare, scribd etc.
