Overview

This pocket revision guide will be a must for all medical students preparing for a major exam in clinical medicine or needing a rapid reminder during a clinical attachment.

Rapid Medicine is the first of a brand new series of short books, covering key facts in a simple and memorable fashion, using a mnemonic to aid recall. It covers over 200 common medical conditions that students will encounter on the wards, in clinics and in their exams. It acts as a rapid refresher, and is intended to be a concise no-nonsense book covering just the basic relevant facts. Arranged in A-Z format, each topic will be covered using the same headings — Definition, Aetiology, Associations/Risk Factors, Epidemiology, History, Examination, Pathology, Investigations, Management, Complications, Prognosis and Differential Diagnosis.

Rapid Medicine is authored by a team of students and junior doctors from Royal Free and University College Medical School, London. Professor Roy Pounder, Professor of Gastroenterology at the Royal Free, and Vice President of the Royal College of Physicians, is the Editorial Advisor and specialist consultants have reviewed all sections.
