Description

'A Textbook of General Practice' incorporates the essential information that every medical student needs to know and understand about general practice and being a general practitioner. Recognised as an invaluable environment for the education and training of medical students, general practice provides an excellent foundation for the basic principles of medicine without which the more in-depth information provided by the specialisms cannot be understood.



The book's learning style is based on experiential and reflective principles, the cornerstones of modern educative theory and practice. Designed to encourage effective learning, the text is clearly presented, lively and user-friendly in its approach. A core of important information is presented and opportunities for reflection and experimentation enable the reader to integrate and commit them to memory.



Addressing the changes in the new medical curriculum, 'A Textbook of General Practice' covers the practical skills needed in general practice, the theoretical background to providing good medicine and the larger considerations of encouraging life long learning and professional development. This new approach ensures a balance of clinical skills, broader communication skills and underlying theory in line with Britain's GMC Recommendations.
