For over half a century Davidsons 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. Davidsons 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 Davidsons authors and its International Advisory Board.
