The Complete MRCP is a series of 3 books that cover the whole of the written section of the Part 1 and Part 2 exams for the College of Physicians qualifications. All three books were originally written by registrars and senior registrars, all of whom wereclosely involved in Membership-level teaching. As a result they are the books most highly regarded by those preparing for the exams and they are essential for all those taking the qualification. The MRCP itself is a very difficult professional qualification. It is jointly organised by the three UK Royal Colleges of Physicians - Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. The format of the exam is constantly changing to reflect the patterns of medicine and roughly 4000 candidates apply to take the MRCP every year. Thisbook covers the 3rd element of the Part 2 MRCP exam - colour photograph questions. It contains 150 colour illustrations covering a wide range of clinical conditions with related questions which are in the form encountered in the exam itself. The photographs inclue radiographs, blood films and pathological examples. The questions give a certain amount of relevant history to help the candidate make the most appropriate diagnosis. The answers are very detailed and should aid the candidate in revision.
A book of 75 cases which mimic the style and approach of the MRCP PACES exam. The book will equip the candidate attempting the MRCP PACES examination, but will also provide an overview of evidence-based medicine for competency-based training.
This updated edition of Radiology for MRCP includes 30 new cases, improved illustrations, new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computer Tomography (CT) and other new techniques to ensure close relevance to the exam.
Including twenty-one specialty-based chapters written by experienced authors, each chapter comprehensively covers the exam syllabus in a clear and concise manner. Facts in each subject are presented in note form, giving clear summaries of essential knowledge.
Making speedy and appropriate clinical decisions and then choosing the best course of action is an essential skill for doctors. Exploring initial medical assessment, 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine presents 100 scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in the emergency or outpatient department, on the ward, or in the community setting. Each case begins with a succinct summary of the patient's history, examination, and initial investigation. The text includes photographs where relevant and questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answers provide a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate. Most of the cases included are common problems but the book also includes more unusual cases to illustrate specific points and to emphasize that rare things do present. The first 20 cases are arranged by systems; the next 80 are in random order because symptoms such as breathlessness and pain may relate to many different clinical problems in various systems. These true-to-life cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important clinical symptoms and signs and to develop the diagnostic and management skills needed for the cases they will encounter on the job.
For the MRCP Part 2 exam, candidates need to be able to interpret radiological images of commonly encountered conditions. They also increasingly need to be able to answer other questions about the condition shown in the image, for example treatment and prognosis. This book has been designed to meet that need. It is divided into five sections: chest, abdomen, nervous system, cardiovascular system and musculoskeletal system. Each condition described is illustrated by one or two high quality radiological images and then provides a concise but holistic view of the condition, with all the important aspects of disease that the candidate will be expected to know. This information is supplemented by a short series of example exam questions.
Presents advances in clinical practice. This title features lists that provide comprehensive coverage of key subjects in the Royal College syllabus. It includes a self-assessment chapter that comprises 100 'best of five' multiple choice questions, which puts the lists into clinical context.
A book of approximately 100 questions based on the interpretation of data from all the commonly used tests in clinical medicine. The questions will be ordered by system and within that by test; for example, the respiratory system questions are based on lung function and flow-volume curves. The book's unique feature is that it will be fully comprehensive, including examples (questions) on all the conditions that can be diagnosed using each particular investigation.
This second edition has been fully updated to provide undergraduates and trainees with the latest advances in clinical examination techniques and diagnosis. Divided into two sections, the first part discusses history taking, systemic symptoms and physical examination of external regions of the body such as the eyes, neck, ear and nose, scalp and skin, and breast. Section two covers systemic examination, describing techniques for investigating and diagnosing internal disorders. The new edition concludes with comprehensive appendices covering topics such as sample collection, chemical analysis of urine, and semen analysis, as well as providing various measurement scales. Key points Fully updated, new edition presenting latest advances in clinical examination techniques In depth coverage of both physical and systemic examination methods Highly illustrated with more than 1250 clinical photographs, diagrams and tables Previous edition published in 2009
This book is intended for the practicing surgeon. It is designed to offer practical insights into the essentials of an epidemiological, statistical and outcomes-based approach to surgical practice.

This dictionary defines various terms typically used in pharmaceutical medicine. A new, 4th edition includes adaptations of the text to the steadily increasing regulatory requirements, particularly in the area of genetics/gene therapy, product quality (e.g., protection against falsified medicines) and of product safety (pharmacovigilance). Further evolving areas that are covered by the 4th edition are typical “grey zones” (health effects often borderline to medicinal products) such as cosmetics and dietary supplements where misleading information is prohibited on one hand but where any health claims need formal authorisation on the other. These but also other areas are reviewed and presented in an updated and – if justified – in an enlarged form.

Pre-publication quotes "I do not think it is an understatement to say that it is a revolutionary book. It is obviously written with integrated courses very much in mind and manages to integrate the basic sciences with clinical information very well.... Maybe above all things, this is a very practically orientated book and really attempts to mould the medical student in to a very good house officer." SHO, Leeds
The 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP has been fully revised and updated throughout to retain its pole position as the textbook to accompany core medical training (CMT) and prepare candidates for success in the Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills and a future specialty career. Features Fully revised for the new Station 5 and completely updated throughout. Promotes understanding and deeper learning of modern medicine applicable to PACES and the specialist registrar. Emphasis on clinical assessment – history-taking, examination and communication skills – equipping candidates with appropriate differential diagnoses from which to develop the right diagnosis. Encourages candidates to question why a diagnosis has arisen and consider its consequences. For example, ‘Heat failure’ is a not a diagnosis until a candidate has considered the differential diagnoses of breathlessness and decided why heart failure is most likely, and then considered its cause (not always ischaemic heart disease), its presentation (acute, chronic, left or right ventricular or both) and, most importantly, the effects of it and its treatments on a patient’s life. This 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP continues to provide fully revised, up-to-date, evidence-based coverage of investigations and treatments. Whilst the emphasis of PACES is on clinical skills, candidates who understand when, for example, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis might benefit from a biologic agent and how this will influence inflammatory disease, is better equipped for success. A one-volume text giving candidates complete preparation for the PACES exam within one portable volume 250 cases organised into the 5 stations of the PACES exam – respiratory and abdominal system, history taking, cardiovascular and nervous system, communication and ethics and skin, locomotion, eyes and endocrine systems Engaging question-and-answer approach at the end of each case – excellent preparation for the exam Boxed tips highlight vital information – helps identify what is most important to remember Produced in full colour throughout Colour coding for each station Many more illustrations added - now over 300 clinical photographs and line drawings in colour Many more cases added, bringing the number up to 250 - 50 per station History-taking and communication skills stations now revised so that they exactly mimic the requirements of the exam
