Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA; 8 edition (April 12, 2010)
With extensive improvements based on reader feedback, the new eighth edition boasts even more black and white and full-color images, which are now larger to improve their clarity and ease-of-use. Mindful of how doctors’ training is constantly evolving, a new chapter on “history and examination” explores this relevant critical skill in depth, enabling you to elicit as much information from the patient as possible. An expanded radiology chapter features improved images, and new topics are devoted to new cancers such as noscomial infections, and further common surgical procedures. The references have been thoroughly overhauled with “key references” identifying the best places to start when researching the subject, and all references are fully accessibel via the supporting website.
Loved and trusted by generations of doctors, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is a reassuring beacon of wisdom, knowledge, and skills, that is forever in your sight.
