About this title:
Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with 'on the go'. Their highly affordable price puts them within reach of those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment.
- Common investigations (ECG, imaging)
- Clinical skills (patient examination)
- Clinical specialties that students perceive as too small to merit a textbook (psychiatry, renal medicine)
Pocket Tutor: Dermatology – Key points:
- Breaks down a subject that students and trainees find confusing due to the number of differentials that mimic each other
- Logical, sequential content: opening chapters on relevant basic science, clinical essentials and diagnostic pathways are followed by chapters devoted to individual disease groups within dermatology, including perinatal and paediatric
- Descriptions of common disorders are enhanced by Clinical Scenarios that help students and trainees to recognize and manage common presenting problems
