The Mount Sinai Expert Guides, published by Wiley and endorsed by Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, provide rapid access, point-of-care clinical information on the most common diseases in a range of different therapeutic areas. Each title focuses on a different speciality and emphasis throughout is on providing rapid-access, clear clinical guidance to aid physicians with point-of-care management of their patients.  

Each title is edited by a renowned specialist from Mount Sinai, normally the Chair of the department, who is responsible for recruiting key faculty members to author the chapters. A chapter template has been developed to which each chapter author must adhere, so as to ensure complete consistency across all the chapters in each book and also across every book in the series. Accompanying each book is a companion website containing accessory materials such as case studies, video clips, MCQs, patient advice and PQRI/ICD codes.

Mount Sinai Expert Guides: Psychiatry will provide specialist trainees and recently qualified specialists in psychiatry with an extremely clinical, affordable and accessible handbook covering the specialty. It will be used as both a point-of-care resource in the hospital and clinical setting, and also as a refresher guide during preparation for board exams and re-certification. 

Focused on providing 100% clinical guidance on the most common conditions that psychologists encounter, it will present the very best in expert information in an attractive, easy to navigate informative and well-structured manner, with features such as key points, potential pitfalls, management algorithms, and national/international guidelines on treatment.
