Product description

Review

Oxford Cases is clearly presented and helpful for young doctors learning about diagnosis. Diagnosis is often a skill that new doctors find difficult. This well designed and logically organised book describes diagnostic reasoning in the assessment of patients presenting with 29 common symptoms, from headache to leg ulcer. As a GP who graduated in 1977 I also found the book helpful in reviewing my knowledge and learning about modern practical medicine. Dr Stephenson, King's College School of Medicine, and member of The Richard Asher Prize judging panel This book is not like the other boring textbooks out there, and really entices the readers to think and challenge themselves. This book has improved my history taking skills 10-fold. All my friends want to know what my secret is! Kamalpreet Singh Cheema, 4th year media at Leicester Medical School It basically mirrors bedside learning on the wards and is a fantastic tool, whether you are preparing for Phase 1 OSCEs, starting clinic rotation or preparing for your finals.

Review

`Review from previous edition This is a wonderful book! It uses case histories to guide through all major medical and surgical scenarios, giving an initial presenting complaint and then working enough each case giving differentials, explaining why each is more likely, before going on to thoroughly describe what investigations are needed and why. It is a very fun and realistic book. I thoroughly, thoroughly recommend it to all medical students - and the sooner in you training the better." ' Caroline Rance, 5th Year Medical Student, Southampton Medical School `This book is welcome break to many of the other medical/surgical text books, a light, entertaining read but still packed with lots of useful tips and information. Unlike other books it gets you to start thinking, it has an excellent layout with a large number of cases accompanying each chapter to help put your knowledge into practice. The viva questions highlight extra important and interesting facts, helping to expand knowledge without merely repeating what can be found in other text books. A saving grace when revision starts to drag - I could pick up this book, work through a chapter or just dip into a couple of cases and would always learn something new or be lead to think about something in a different way. This book is actually fun to read - can't say that about many others!!' Amazon A refreshing approach not seen elsewhere in other texts. Comprehensive yet focused with the key learning points and questions the junior clinician needs to answer. Use to develop independent diagnostic skills and clinical reasoning. An unparalleled approach to diagnostics, for students and junior doctors alike! In my few years as a medical student, I have never come across any book that teaches a medical student to be an amazing diagnostician the way that this one does! It makes you think about differentials for presenting complaints right from the beginning - making your history thorough and intelligent.... It's exactly what examiners are looking for in long and short cases and I will definitely refer back to it next year in F1. A must buy! --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
