Overview

Medicine is a revolutionary core textbook designed with students for students. Clinically-orientated and focused squarely on the core curriculum, Medicine delivers what medical students need to know in a manner that encourages learning. Medicine has evolved out of close collaboration and planning with students, junior doctors, and teachers. The result is something refreshingly different - the result is something quite unique. Medicine successfully integrates basic science and clinical practice. The systems-based chapters all follow a common structure: Structure and Function - the essential basics that underpin each system Approach to the Patient - history and examination, clinical presentations, differential diagnosis and investigations Disease and their Management - all the common conditions that medical students need ot know for future practice This consistent, easy-to-navigate structure makes locating information simple and it is also tailored toward successful revision. All chapters have been updated and revised to follow the core curriculum and current medical practice. A new chapter on the Human Aspects of Medicine covers the principles of medicine, ethics, law and evidence-based medicine guidelines. Individual colour-coded features make Medicine even easier to use: 'At a Glance' boxes: perfect for quick review and revision 'Clinical Presentations at a Glance': excellent summaries to develop your clinical problem-solving skills 'Key Points': alert you to essential information throughout 'Must Know' checklists: highlight the key learning objectives in each chapter 'Further Reading': your guide to clinical evidence from key books, journals and
