Overview

An essential guide to general practice and being a general practitioner, A Textbook of General Practice is written specifically with the medical student and foundation doctor in mind.

Reflecting current practice, the book does not seek to reiterate the content of a general medical textbook, but instead teaches the fundamental principles of general practice. The coverage is comprehensive, with everything the undergraduate student or foundation doctor will encounter in a general practice module or rotation. The skills and knowledge presented can usefully be applied to all areas of clinical practice.

With practical exercises throughout the book, readers are encouraged to learn through doing. Quotes from students and tutors offer insights into personal experience, while thinking and discussion points encourage reflection. New features in this edition include improved organization, "red flag" pointers to serious illnesses, and SBA-style self assessment questions.

With content entirely updated to reflect the latest recommendations from Tomorrow's Doctors, the third edition of A Textbook of General Practice is the number one choice for undergraduates seeking a narrative introduction to this important discipline.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: The editor of this U.K. book for undergraduate medical students reflects on the changes that have occurred in general practice since her time as a medical student and how this book mirrors the development of medicine over the years. The previous edition was published in 2004, and the first in 1998.
Purpose: The book distills what a U.K. medical student must know and understand and concludes with two chapters focused on the life that the student is embarking on.
Audience: Clearly, this is meant for U.K. medical students, particularly those intending to enter general practice.
Features: The chapters cover learning in general practice, the skills necessary to be a general practitioner, the common illnesses one encounters, legal aspects, and the life of a general practitioner.
Assessment: This well-written basic book is not intended to be a comprehensive scientific medical textbook, but an overview for new students or graduate trainees in general practice.
