    10th Peds Core: Your Perfect Pediatric Boards Study Buddy

    Updated 11/10/21

    We’re as dedicated to continuous improvement and learning as you are, and our 10th Edition Pediatrics materials are proof. These Pediatric board study materials are composed of all the high-yield, board-focused material you need, including the latest updates and practice guidelines. 

    Read about the entire Peds 10th Edition Release.

    The Pediatrics board review Core curriculum is a foundational tool that we build the content for all of our Pediatrics study tools from. It’s a labor of love to put together and takes us two years to create.

    How is the Content of the Core Created?

    The MedStudy Pediatrics board review Core curriculum is a set of 5 books, available as printed books or in digital format. These books are laser-focused on the medical knowledge you need for ABP boards or AOBP boards, and a strong Pediatrics practice. We bring on talented physician educators across specialties to create the content for each section.

    Then, we have 2 Editors-in-Chief who review every single section created (there are 25 sections in the 10th Peds Core!). They make sure the content in the 10th Peds Core is pertinent to generalists (not bogged down in the details of treatment), is presented in a logical way, and that the language is conversational— something that MedStudy customers have come to know and love.

    We Designed the Core to Help You Ace Pediatric Boards 

    What's different about the Core? The MedStudy voice. Think of Pediatrics Core as a series of well-crafted lectures by outstanding teachers. These lectures are casual, yet concise, and focused on the medical knowledge needed for a strong Pediatrics practice. We take out the academic jargon and write in plain English so that you don’t have to re-read the content 3 times to understand what it’s trying to say.

    We've also visually formatted the Core to help you efficiently learn and retain the most important information you need to know to pass Pediatric boards and maintain your practice. In both the printed and digital formats you'll see:

    The digital Core is the perfect learning tool for Pediatric boards.

    Choose the Digital Core

    If you want an interactive digital review, get the Core online for even more features. You can search keywords across topic, section, or entire Core. Take notes while you read, and we’ll keep everything organized for you. Bookmark your spot to pick back up with your reading in your next session.

    The digital Pediatrics board review Core curriculum is interlinked across every topic, so you can go from Core to Flashcards, Flashcards to Core; Q&As to Core, or Core to Q&As in a single click. For example, if you’re reading about cardiomyopathy in the Core, you can then use a link to jump to the same section in Q&A or digital Flashcards to quiz yourself on that information. It works in the reverse, too!

    And, the digital Core is now future-proof! We've updated the online format to include 3 years of access. This edition-less Core will receive ongoing updates with new information and guideline updates, so you will always have access to the very latest in Pediatrics.

    The new Pediatrics digital Core is currently available for pre-order and will be released this December.
