About this title

Winner of the Richard Asher Prize

The second edition of Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery teaches students a hypothesis-driven, logical, step-by-step approach to diagnosis when faced with each of 29 common patient presentations. By challenging students with questions at each stage of a case (history-taking, examination, investigation, management), this approach mirrors that used by successful clinicians on the wards. In tackling these questions, students understand how to critically analyse information and learn to integrate their existing knowledge into a real-life scenario from start to finish.

Each chapter focuses on a common presenting symptom (eg, chest-pain). By starting with a symptom mirroring real life settings, students learn to draw on their knowledge of different physiological systems – for example, cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology – at the same time. All the major presenting symptoms in general medicine and surgery (mapped to UK medical school curricula) are covered, together with a broad range of pathologies.

Key points:

  • Covers the common presenting symptoms in UK medical school curricula and finals exams
  • Friendly and accessible text outlines how to approach diagnosis logically, and clearly explains the rationale behind clinical decisions
  • Systematically walks the reader through the diagnostic process from history through examination, investigation and interpretation to management options
  • Each chapter includes a long case, several short cases, viva (short-answer) questions and multiple-choice questions to prepare for life on the wards and to direct revision

This book is an essential resource for all medicine students, and provides a modern, well-rounded introduction to life on the wards. It is ideal for those starting out in clinical medicine – and an ideal refresher for those revising for OSCEs and finals.

'...when I study medicine, I wish that I could download medical knowledge into my memory. Until medical science invents such a device or google becomes implanted into our occipital lobes, I thoroughly recommend the Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery.' – Tom Rock, BMA Medical Student Representative, University of Bristol, in the West of England Medical Journal

Authors: Hugo Farne, Edward Norris-Cervetto, and James Warbrick-Smith
