Summary: 'Davidson's Essentials of Medicine' presents the content of 'Davidson's Principles & Practice of Medicine' textbook in an accessible and portable format. It allows the reader to study the key information in a format that complements the core text. For over half a century Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine has informed and educated students, doctors and other health professionals all over the world, providing a comprehensive account of the practice of medicine. Davidson's Essentials of Medicine provides the core content of the main textbook in a condensed format which will be invaluable whenever you are on the move - whether commuting, travelling between training sites, or on electives. This book provides a distillation of the core information required for clinical studies in medicine. While retaining the acclaimed readability of the main textbook it presents the key information in a format more appropriate for practical clinical work. The contents have been carefully selected by a team of junior doctors, emphasising only the topics that will be essential for clinical studies. The book includes additional chapters of content to aid clinical practice including a practically-focussed chapter on therapeutics and a useful guide to interpreting major clinical investigations. The text draws directly on the depth and breadth of experience of the Davidson's authors and its International Advisory Board. Updated to include key changes and new illustrations included in Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine.
