The given query in SQL that selects the name of physicians and the treatments they are trained in from the physician table, procedure table, and trained_in table.

The query combines data from the three tables. It selects the physician name , treatment name from the physician table and the procedure table respectively, and the trained_in table links the physician and treatment on their respective IDs.

The resulting output will be a table with the columns "Physician" and "Treatment".

SQL: Tips of the Day

Grouped LIMIT in PostgreSQL: Show the first N rows for each group?

db=# SELECT * FROM xxx;
 id | section_id | name
  1 |          1 | A
  2 |          1 | B
  3 |          1 | C
  4 |          1 | D
  5 |          2 | E
  6 |          2 | F
  7 |          3 | G
  8 |          2 | H
(8 rows)

I need the first 2 rows (ordered by name) for each section_id, i.e. a result similar to:

id | section_id | name
  1 |          1 | A
  2 |          1 | B
  5 |          2 | E
  6 |          2 | F
  7 |          3 | G
(5 rows)

PostgreSQL v9.3 you can do a lateral join

select distinct t_outer.section_id, t_top.id, t_top.name from t t_outer
join lateral (
    select * from t t_inner
    where t_inner.section_id = t_outer.section_id
    order by t_inner.name
    limit 2
) t_top on true
order by t_outer.section_id;
