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 to 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 websites

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Susan Sheneman
This is a new soft cover textbook of internal medicine. The text is designed to provide a systematic approach to disease that enables the medical student to integrate basic science and clinical medicine. This has been nicely accomplished by beginning each chapter with a review of normal physiology and the approach to the patient, followed by a highly structured discussion of specific diseases. The contributors are from academic hospitals and universities in the United Kingdom and Australia. The book is intended for medical students. This large text contains more than 500 beautiful and helpful color illustrations. ""At a glance"" boxes provide ready access to core information. ""History"" and ""Examination"" boxes summarize the approach to the patient. Geriatric medicine is emphasized within each system. References are not provided. This comprehensive, yet succinct textbook provides a bridge over the gap between classroom and clinical medicine. The medical student will find the text easy to read and understand because of the precise presentation and very useful and well done illustrations.

A core textbook for medical students, reviewing the basic anatomy of each body system and explaining how to take a patient history, perform a complete examination, and select appropriate investigations. Sections on areas such as heart disease, renal disease, palliative medicine, and poisoning describe how to diagnose and manage disease and perform selected procedures. Features many color photos and b&w imaging examples, and chapter boxes on patient approach, management, emergencies, and common procedures, plus an introductory chapter on the molecular basis of disease.
