This text on human gross anatomy emphasizes the clinical importance of structure and function, through clinical correlations, surface anatomy and modern imaging techniques. It provides a review of the material in the larger text "Clinically Oriented Anatomy," by the same author.
Physiology plays a major role in the scientific foundation of medicine and other
subjects related to human health and physical performance. Pharmacology is the
science which deals with the effects of drugs on living systems and their use in the
treatment of disease. This book is designed to enhance students’ understanding of
physiology and pharmacology via a series of case studies involving human disease
and its treatment.
Traditional university teaching methods focus on informing students in terms of
physiological and pharmacological theory.
Professor D. R. Laurence was either author or coauthor
of this textbook from its 1st edition in 1960 to
its 8th in 1997. This is a long life for any textbook. Its
achievement bears testimony to a style of presentation
that strives to be clear and readable, and
to retain the reader's interest whilst imparting
information about a subject that can be at times
both complex and confusing.
For otolaryngology–head and neck surgeons in training as
residents and fellows, it is a difficult task to keep up with
all of the advances in the basic and clinical sciences that
impact the medical and surgical practice of their specialty.
It is also pertinent to the practice of otolaryngology–head
and neck surgery for interested medical students and lecturers
in medical school faculties who teach students and
resident physicians to have a reference book that clearly
presents the basic principles.
Written by one of the great teachers of Anatomy, this 50th anniversary edition of Clinical Anatomy continues to provide thousands of medical students, postgraduate trainees and junior doctors across the world with essential anatomical information within a clinical setting. It is particularly appropriate for those preparing for the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeon's Exam.
Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 3. Decision-Making in Clinical Medicine
Decision-Making in Clinical Medicine: Introduction To the medical student who requires 2 h to collect a patient's history and perform a physical examination, and several additional hours to organize them into a coherent presentation, the experienced clinician's ability to reach a diagnosis and decide on a management plan in a fraction of the time seems extraordinary.
(BQ) Ebook 100 Cases in Clinical Pathology presents 100 clinical scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in the emergency department, outpatient clinic, or in general practice in which an understanding of the underlying clinical pathology is central to arriving at the correct diagnosis.
(BQ) Ebook 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine is an indispensable revision tool for medical students preparing for clinical examinations or OSCEs. Using scenarios which mimic daily life, the cases will interest students in clinical problems and help them develop their clinical reasoning skills, with each case presenting details of a patient's medical history and the key findings of a clinical examination, together with initial investigation results for evaluation.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Rapid clinical pharmacology - A student formulary" presents the following contents: Basic pharmacokinetic concepts gastrointestinal system, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, central nervous system.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Rapid clinical pharmacology - A student formulary" presents the following contents: Infections, endocrine system, obstetrics, gynaecology and urinary tract disorders, malignant disease and immunosuppression, musculoskeletal and joint diseases, eye, anaesthesia, intravenous fluids,...
Let’s face it. Not every nurse would make a good clinical instructor.
Technical proficiency alone does not guarantee the
ability to effectively manage nursing students at the clinical
site. Even nurses who are capable of providing clinical instruction
may not wish to take on the considerable personal liability
associated with the oversight of these nursing students.
Perhaps you are different. Perhaps you are one of those
nurses who is in fact both capable and willing to impart your
knowledge to the next generation of caregivers.
As a clinical student, I never felt I gained much from didactic
teaching. The greatest exception to this was a lesson taught by
Peter Ellis, Consultant ENT Surgeon at Addenbrooke’s hos-
pital. He had the daunting prospect of taking an uninspired
group of students for the whole afternoon in a small, stuffy
lecture room. He made us take our seats, then, sitting on a table
at the front, he announced, ‘I am going to teach you something
today that you are never going to forget. Any patient with
hoarseness of the voice for 3 weeks has carcinoma of the larynx
until proven otherwise.
This book contains twenty client profiles to use in practicing interviewing and diagnostic skills.
Ten profiles are of adult cases ranging in age from eighteen to seventy (chapters 3-12). Ten
profiles are of child or teen cases ranging in age from seven to seventeen (chapters 13-22). In
addition to age, the twenty profiles vary in terms of ethnicity, gender, national origin, religion,
socioeconomic status, presenting problems, and level of problem severity.
The instructor can have students simply read through these profiles and then complete the
three sets of exercises that follow them.

This is a concise description of the clinical manifestations frequently seen in the more common respiratory disorders affecting pediatric patients. After a brief description of each disease, the clinical findings associated with the disorder are summarized in table format. Students are cautioned that the tables represent a summary of the “classic” findings in moderately advanced cases. In reality the occurrence and degree of the typical findings vary with the severity of the disease and the patients overall health status.
