A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

No other resource makes clinical infectious diseases more manageable and easy to master than Infectious Diseases: A Clinical Short Course. This one-of-a-kind self-instruction tool is organized by system/region as opposed to pathogens -- simulating how common pathogens and disorders would be encountered in rounds or in practice. For this reason, this remarkable resource is unsurpassed for learning how to associate pathogens with their corresponding impact on actual patients.

  • Numerous case examples -- appropriate for PBL and integrated curricula -- to further highlight clinical application of the content
  • Key points summaries and Guiding Questions that drive home core concepts and aid comprehension
  • 24 eye-catching color plates that depict major pathogens and reinforce the impact of clinical infection
  • NEW! An even more concise and streamlined format designed to help you learn the most in the least amount of time
