Adolescent Medicine: State of the Art Reviews

Adolescent Medicine: State of the Art Reviews (AM:STARs) is the journal of the AAP Section on Adolescent Health. This journal is published twice a year (starting in Spring 2016) by The American Academy of Pediatrics and provides in depth information on specific adolescent health topics. In early 2017, in conjunction with the adolescent medicine course in Anaheim, CA, a special issue of AM:STARs will be published on common clinical situations, which can be used a a resource for practical clinical care as well as for exam review. It will be a different format and will include 80 questions on a wide range of topics in the field of adolescent medicine. Each question will be followed by a discussion of the topic. We are hoping this information will help readers in the clinical setting as well as help prepare them for board exam review.
