Overview

Clinical Medicine Lecture Notes provides a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the management and treatment of medical conditions. A short manual of techniques on communication and physical examination in Part 1 is supported by the core knowledge required on diseases specific to each body system in Part 2.

Whether you need to develop your knowledge for clinical practice, or refresh that knowledge in the run up to examinations, Clinical Medicine Lecture Notes will help foster a systematic approach to the clinical situation for all medical students and hospital doctors.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: From the U.K., this is a concise reference on the more frequently encountered conditions in primary care. The previous edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to focus on history-taking and the physical examination as the essential tools of clinical medicine. The book does focus on these essentials and adds a few of the standard ancillary diagnostic tests, such as the electrocardiogram. As a basic reference for junior clinicians, it meets its objectives.
Audience: Although the audience is junior clinicians, the book has very useful points for all clinicians and can serve as a quick reference for all levels of practitioners.
Features: The book is divided into two sections; the first concentrates on the clinical examination and the second on selected topics of traditional organ systems. The figures and diagrams are very intuitive and the full-color pictures and radiographs are extremely well produced. There are numerous boxes of specific features that save a great deal of time.
Assessment: Overall, this is a very nice book for clinicians just learning and a memory jogger for more experienced clinicians.
