As final examinations approach, medical students often become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of knowledge required to pass all subjects in one go, including surgery, medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, pharmacology, and psychiatry. Students cannot know each of these subjects in as much detail as they did during their individual attachments and they need to concentrate on important topics rather than minutiae.
Whereas existing textbooks cover many topics very well and in great detail, they are lengthy and difficult to read in a short space of time; some subjects are poorly covered and give no real understanding of practical management and logical thought processes the exact requirements for passing finals.
The philosophy of this series is to focus on the level of knowledge and the approach that would be expected of the better students arriving at finals. The books are written in a tutorial fashion, so that the user understands and remembers what is being taught and feels like they are being taught on a one-to-one basis.
Forthcoming volumes in this series include: Medical Talk, O&G Talk, Paediatric Talk, Pathology Talk, Pharmacology Talk and Psychiatry Talk.
