Fundamentals of Surgical Practice is the essential textbook for the MRCS and the AFRCSEd. Exactly mirroring the unified syllabus, it gives the trainee a clear understanding of the core knowledge required to succeed in the examinations and stands apart from other textbooks in its direct relevance to the new examination. The chapters have been written by acknowledged experts in their field, many of whom are themselves involved in the training and examining of candidates, and the content has been designed to make learning as efficient as possible, whilst at the same time providing adequate detail, key points and suggestions for further reading. In addition to a detailed index, each chapter has its own table of contents to enhance ease of use. Fundamentals of Surgical Practice is indispensable for the trainee, and also provides the established surgeon and other healthcare professionals working in the surgical environment with a modern, authoritative overview of the key areas of surgical practice.

Greenwich Medical Media, 1998, $75.00. Distributor: Oxford University Press, Inc.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
' … this is a thorough and comprehensive text which achieves its aims. It fills the gap which currently exists between the Royal College Course Manual and the purer surgical texts. I feel that it will become a standard book among those approaching the MRCS examination.' Injury

' … the editors score most points by clearly targeting their readership and by including a substantial proportion of the core of knowledge required for the new fellowship exams … I would buy this book if I were involved in the AFRCS/MRCS either as a candidate or as an examiner.' Journal of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh

'Fundamentals of Surgical Practice is welcome and will be of great interest to a large number of surgical trainees.' British Journal of Surgery
