In the early 1980s, two junior doctors from Oxford noted down all the medical information they found valuable to keep. As medical students they learned most not from organised lecturers but from clinical sessions - on the ward and in clinic. Useful notes were written on scraps of paper, and it was from this that the original Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine was born. No other book has entered the hearts, minds and pockets of so many doctors and medical students the world over. Now in its 7th edition, the main features and essence of the original edition remain unchanged. Developed over 21 years, the Handbook encompasses the experience, knowledge and wisdom of more than 10 different authors. With its characteristic combination of incisive guidance, wit, a lucid style, and memorable epigrams, it continues to be the leading pocket reference of clinical medicine. The Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences has been written by biomedical scientists and clinicians to explain the fundamental scientific principles that underpin clinical medicine, and to provide students with a firm grounding in the basic sciences.
Frequent cross-referencing with the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine helps to highlight the clinical relevance of specific issues. Deliberately divided into systems-based sections that mirror modern medical teaching strategies, this handbook begins with a clear, easily digestible account of basic cell physiology and biochemistry. It then moves on to an investigation of the traditional piers of medicine (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and pharmacology) integrated in the context of each of the major systems relevant to the human body. Well illustrated with clear diagrams and colour images, it will prove especially useful for students on problem-based learning courses who are in need of a concise and user-friendly book, and will also serve as a refresher for those doing membership exams. This combined bundle represents fantaststic value. With comprehensive coverage of pre-clinical and clinical topics, this pack provides you with everything that you need for Medical School and much, much more!
