Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
