Written by biomedical scientists and clinicians, with the purpose of disseminating the fundamental scientific principles that underpin medicine, this new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences provides a clear, easily digestible account of basic cell physiology and biochemistry. It also includes an investigation of the traditional pillars of medicine (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and pharmacology) integrated in the context of each of the major systems relevant to the human body. Cross-referenced to the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, and thoroughly illustrated, it is the ideal introduction to the medical sciences for medical students and biomedical scientists, as well as a valuable refresher for junior doctors.

Review quote

I have no doubt that OHMS is one of the best books I have ever bought. Medical Student, University of Edinburgh I would certainly recommend this book for clinical students who want to refresh some basic sciences later in their education. This is a reliable reference book which I think will serve me very well into my clinical years and I shall keep by my desk for those moments where I need to find a long-ago learnt and now-forgotten fact!
