In 1997, the first five books in the Blueprints series were published as board review for medical students, interns, and residents who wanted high-yield, accurate clinical content for USMLE Steps 2 & 3. More than a decade later, the Blueprints brand has expanded into high-quality trusted resources covering the broad range of clinical topics studied by medical students and residents during their primary, specialty, and subspecialty rotations. The Blueprints were conceived as a study aid created by students, for students. In keeping with this concept, the editors of the current edition of the Blueprints books have recruited resident contributors to ensure that the series continues to offer the information and the approach that made the original Blueprints a success. Our readers report that Blueprints are useful for every step of their medical career—from their clerkship rotations and subinternships to a board review for USMLE Steps 2 & 3. Residents studying for USMLE Step 3 often use the books for reviewing areas that were not their specialty. Students from a wide variety of health care specialties, including those in physician assistant, nurse practitioner, and osteopathic programs, use Blueprints either as a course companion or to review for their licensure examinations. Now in its third edition, Blueprints Family Medicine has been completely revised and updated to bring you the most current treatment and management strategies. The feedback we have received from our readers has been tremendously helpful in guiding the editorial direction of the third edition. We are grateful to the hundreds of medical students and residents who have responded with in-depth comments and highly detailed observations. Martin S. Lipsky Mitchell S. King
