Now in its tenth edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine has been fully revised, with five new authors on the writing team bringing content fresh from the bedside.
Space has been breathed into the design, with more core material at your fingertips in quick-reference lists and flow diagrams, and key references have been honed to the most up-to-date and relevant. Each page has been updated to reflect the latest changes in practice and best management, and the chapters on gastroenterology, history and examination, infectious disease, neurology, and radiology have been extensively revised.
Unique among medical texts, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is a complete and concise guide to the core areas of medicine that also encourages thinking about the world from the patient’s perspective, offering a holistic, patient-centred approach.
Loved and trusted by millions for over three decades, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine continues to be a truly indispensable companion for the practice of modern medicine.
Review from previous edition The bees’ knees of medicine. . . A brilliant all-round book. ( The Student Room)
Incredibly helpful in almost all situations, information well laid out and easy to find, engaging to read … useful asides to aid memorisation, essential algorithms/reference intervals helpfully situated on front and back inside covers; a generally excellent and clearly very well-thought-out book. ( Tom Dalton, University of Birmingham, UK)
I very much appreciated the very human and caring aspect it brings to clinical medicine, it’s lovely to have the dry, biomedical material broken up with humorous, motivational and touching stories. ( Sam Siljee, University of Otago, New Zealand)
THE best book that a medical student could ever use. Everything is so easy to find, and is just enough depth for me! ( Alexander Wibberley, 3rd year medical student, University of Leeds)
Like many other students I use the book as a quick reference/recall and revision tool, and for that it is (for lack of a better word) perfect. Every medical student in their clinical years should own one of these, and I think most of them already do! If you dont you are missing out. ( Paddy Green, almostadoctor.co.uk)
