The latest edition of Kochar’s Clinical Medicine for Students includes all new editors and authors who provide critical information medical students need to succeed.
The textbook includes four sections:
• “Key Manifestations and Presentations of Diseases” describes the key symptoms and findings that clinicians look for in patients and links them to a basic understanding of physiology.
• “Diseases and Disorders” is organized by traditional organ systems. After a brief introduction on epidemiology, each chapter addresses the etiology, clinical manifestation, diagnosis, treatment and complications of the disease or disorder.
• “Ambulatory Medicine” highlights topics frequently encountered in the outpatient setting.
• “Systems-based Learning and Practice”—an entirely new section—includes topics pertinent to the current health care system in the United States.
With students now being exposed to clinical medicine early on in medical school, this newest edition will be a valuable resource from the beginning of training.
Whether you’re studying to be a doctor, nurse or physician assistant, you’ll appreciate this textbook’s detailed information on diseases and disorders as well as its guidance on practicing in the field.
