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.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This book hasn't got any pretty pictures, but it is great for some of those last minute cramming sessions where you just need the basics all on one page."
5th Year Medical Student, Liverpool Medical School, Sphincter, December 2003

"The contributors to this little pocket reference book are to be saluted for taking on what seems like an impossible task and doing a very good job.... I liked how the authors boiled down the essential facts to the bare bones on physical exam, work-up, and clinical presentation. Each segment is represented by only a few sentences. Not an easy task with so much information to not include.... This is a very handy pocket reference.I think it is a good study guide in presenting the important basics one must know in internal medicine."
Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)

"Rapid medicine has it all and the format of the book facilitates "smart study" not hard study. Facts are covered in a simple and memorable fashion. In this respect it is also ideal for exam study."
New Doctor, Auckland University Medical Students

"This book is a comprehensive and concise review of the spectrum of medical conditions that clinicians will come across. Invaluable for consultation on the wards, in A&E. And a fantastic revision tool. Can't be recommended highly enough."
Medical Student

"It is actually a remarkably useful book...The book is best used either as an aide memoir for conditions about which you have already learned, or as a rapid learning process about a condition you feel your consultant is going to grill you on very shortly."
Medical Student, Guy's, King's, St. Thomas' Medical School, GKT, February 2004
