Overview

Kumar & Clark’s Clinical Medicine 8 builds on the prize-winning formula that won the first prize in the BMA Book Awards Medicine Category in 2010 (7th edition) and 2006 (6th edition).

It still remains as the ‘gold-standard’ thorough guide to clinical medicine its forefathers were.’ BMA Judges 2010

'This is one of a select few books that deserves to be in most doctors' personal possession and it's as simple as that. ...’ Dr Harry Brown.
