"Medicine" is a revolutionary core textbook designed with students for students. Clinically-orientated and focused squarely on the core curriculum, "Medicine" delivers what medical students need to know in a manner that encourages learning. "Medicine" has evolved out of close collaboration and planning with students, junior doctors, and teachers. The result is something refreshingly different - the result is something quite unique. "Medicine" successfully integrates basic science and clinical practice. The systems-based chapters all follow a common structure: Structure and Function - the essential basics that underpin each system; Approach to the Patient - history and examination, clinical presentations, differential diagnosis and investigations; and, Disease and their Management - all the common conditions that medical students need to know for future practice.This consistent, easy-to-navigate structure makes locating information simple and it is also tailored toward successful revision. All chapters have been updated and revised to follow the core curriculum and current medical practice.
A new chapter on the Human Aspects of Medicine covers the principles of medicine, ethics, law and evidence-based medicine guidelines. Individual colour-coded features make "Medicine" even easier to use. It's features include: 'At a Glance' boxes - perfect for quick review and revision; 'Clinical Presentations at a Glance' - excellent summaries to develop your clinical problem-solving skills; 'Key Points' - alert you to essential information throughout; 'Must Know' checklists - highlight the key learning objectives in each chapter; and, 'Further Reading' - your guide to clinical evidence from key books, journals and websites.
