Overview

Realistic yet encouraging, responsible yet wryly humorous, this is the book that all final-year medical students and junior doctors will need in planning their careers. Written by the Dean of a London medical school, who has taken a particular interest in selecting and training medical students, and helping them to prepare for a career in medicine, it brings together essential information on all the specialities, both hospital-based and in the community. Recognising that medicine is an exciting but also an exacting way of life, the author touches on the ethical dilemmas and the personal stresses, as well as the opportunities for fulfilment, that are an integral part of any medical career. Living Medicine may be read straight through, or used as a reference source for specific information on each speciality or group of specialities. The illustrations, vintage David Langdon, bring the text to life with insight and humour.
