NEW MCQ BOOK ON PSM by Dr Vivek Jain (PULSE Publications)

Message from the Author himself
‘Understanding PSM is difficult, owing to the vastness of the subject, but enjoyable, if you come across a good teacher and a useful book!’
A student
While preparing for PG entrance examination, I myself realised that most of the PSM MCQs, related text and even the referenced answers given in books were invariably unable to satisfy me as a student. Most of the times, there were questions from ‘topics not given in standard text books’ (for example, nested case control study, case series report, statistical errors, probability, odds and likelihood ratios, health legislations, Water washed diseases, Golden rice, COPRA, etc. – all together just the tip of an iceberg of such MCQs). Every year there were ‘new unheard questions from unexplored fields’, overlapping choices of MCQs from other fields of medicine accompanied with futile search for ‘recent most data of Public Health Statistics’, etc. This all made me realise that PSM is a difficult subject to conceptualise and memorise. Elaborate books also confused me regarding the relative importance of each topic in the subject.
I also realised that students face maximum difficulty in understanding the concepts of ‘Biostatistics’ and in obtaining precise, concise and useful data from ‘National Health Programmes of India’.
Also, PG entrance examinations have a sizeable chunk of direct and overlapping questions from PSM subject (Just 1 subject out of 19 total subjects). A quick look at last few years tells us the following stats (to name a few),
AIIMS PG Entrance Examination: 20 – 25 PSM questions (10 – 12% of total MCQs)
AIPGME Examination: 23 – 30 PSM questions (8 – 10% of total MCQs)
UPSC CMS Examination: 60 – 75 PSM questions (25 – 30% of total MCQs)
FMGE – MCI Screening Examination: 30 – 35 questions (10 – 12% of total MCQs)
DPG Entrance Examination: 22 – 28 PSM questions (8 – 10% of total MCQs)
Moreover, PSM helps in solving several allied questions (partly or totally) of Paediatrics, Obstetrics, Pharmacology, Medicine, Microbiology, Ophthalmology, etc.
So there is no denying the fact that ‘PSM is of paramount importance’ to successfully tackle any PG Entrance Examination.
Thus, I have written this book keeping a student’s, a teacher’s and an examiner’s perspective in mind.
1. All the answers suitably referenced, authenticated and given in sufficient details
2. Each answer followed by ‘Also Remember’- A compilation of various important note-worthy points based on previous questions from several fields
3. Previous solved papers of AIIMS PG Entrance Examinations (May 1999 – November 2008; 20 papers) and AIPGME Examinations (2001 – 2009; 9 papers)
4. Golden Points (two sets) for a quick revision just before the examination
5. Several annexures (Incubation period and Modes of transmission of diseases, Important days of Public Health, Instruments of importance in public health, Important health legislations and programmes in India, Vectors, NHP 2002 & NPP 2000 and Public Health related statistics of India) have been included towards the end of the book to given the student an edge over others.
Please remember there is no substitute to theory books, but hopefully you will find all relevant theory in this user-friendly book.
