Description

Medicine and Surgery is an exciting new book that contains the core information needed by medical students in the run up to exams.


This is the only book available that covers both medicine and surgery.



  • It encompasses all of the major systems and core subjects
  • Every condition is discussed under the key headings of definition, epidemiology, aetiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, investigations, management and prognosis
  • The content follows a very consistent and familiar style, so that information is easily accessible, digestible and memorable
  • Each chapter opens with an overview of clinical method before discussing the most common conditions relevant to that speciality


Medicine and Surgery: A Concise Textbook is written specifically for medical students as essential revision preparation, for junior doctors as a refresher on the wards and for other allied health professionals who want a quick reminder of key facts and data.
