"Fast Track Surgery: Trauma, Orthopaedics and the Subspecialties" is written for you, the medical student or junior doctor on your surgical rotation during the clinical years of medical school or starting off on your surgical training post-qualification. It focuses on most of what you can expect to see on the wards, and is written in a question-and-answer format covering the most commonly asked questions on the wards. The facts as you need to know them have been presented in a concise, accessible way. Also included are questions on clinically oriented anatomy, which will prove indispensable while in the operating theater with the consultant! This book is full of useful tips on how to survive your surgical rotation, and mnemonics to make the cramming process a bit easier.

Review quote

'This book is impressive. It is beginner-friendly and makes a good effort to explain things assuming only a little basic knowledge - much more comprehensive than any old standard textbook. The 'Q&A' style is clear and easy to read. This book provides some really useful ideas for memorising important information - such as mnemonics - and includes 'applied anatomy' questions and points to remember during history-taking and examination. Buy this book! It is like a friendly tutor guiding you through each case - answering all the right questions.' Seb Pillon, medical student, University of Manchestershow more
