Reflecting the current approach to joint postgraduate training programmes in infectious diseases (ID) and microbiology, the Oxford Handbook of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology takes an integrated approach to both subjects. It covers the basic principles of bacteriology and virology, along with specific guidance on individual diseases and conditions, all in the accessible Oxford Medical Handbook style. Practical and comprehensive, this handbook includes coverage of national and international guidelines, together with information on topical issues such as bioterrorism and preventative medicine. Fully reviewed by specialist senior readers, and with useful links to up-to-date clinical information and online resources, this is an important addition to the Oxford Medical Handbook Series.

Review quote

The authors have achieved a Herculean task in including so much information in what is still a pocket-sized volume, albeit close to 900 pages, and in a format that is accessible and readable...In terms of value for money and information per cm3, this handbook cannot be beaten.
