This is a logical and well laid-out approach to clinical medicine. Sections are divided and knowledge is meted out in small, easily absorbed doses. Clinical Medicine Lecture Notes provides a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the management and treatment of medical conditions. A short manual of techniques on communication and physical examination in Part 1 is supported by the core knowledge required on diseases specific to each body system in Part 2. Combining readability with high quality illustrations, this seventh edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect up to date practice in examination and clinical investigation, and advances in the evidence base supporting modern day clinical practice. Numerous figures and tables help distil the information for revision purposes, and there are new chapters on the medical interview and assessment. Whether you need to develop your knowledge for clinical practice, or refresh that knowledge in the run up to examinations, Clinical Medicine Lecture Notes will help foster a systematic approach to the clinical situation for all medical students and hospital doctors.
