A practical manual of clinical medicine, arranged systematically and concisely as a wide-ranging systems-based survey of the main points of clinical practice - perfectly geared towards study for the MRCP(UK) Part 1 examination. Neil Black, in the Foreword The MRCP exam is not only a necessary hurdle to pass for any junior doctor wishing to become a hospital physician in the UK, but also an excellent training in the theory and clinical skills needed to be a senior physician. This book is a comprehensive revision text covering all the clinical subjects of the MRCP Part 1 and 2 examination. It adheres to the MRCP official syllabus and also reflects UK clinical guidelines as well as peer-reviewed medical research papers. The information is set out in an easily accessible way, making studying for this important exam productive and enjoyable. Organised by subject area, salient points are noted and the contents give appropriate weighting to the individual topics. Boxed text, tables and figures all add to this concise guide's appeal. Whilst it covers much traditional material such as lists of causes and differential diagnoses, this is the only book written entirely according to the current evidence-base as published by NICE, SCIE and the Cochrane Collaboration. This is a one-stop manual for candidates of the MRCP Part 1 and 2 but is also highly recommended for MRCP Part 2 written candidates and undergraduates sitting their final year examinations.
