Review from previous edition: "This is a valuable handbook that is well worth the investment."
--Doody's Notes May 2014
Review from previous edition: "Now in its sixth edition, the 'Cheese and Onion' (as it is known) continues to be the most popular handbook for both the undergraduate and the junior doctor on the wards... The reason this little book remains so popular is that most topics are covered succinctly
on a two-page spread of the book, and coloured headings break up the text and provide a logical structure for readers of all levels. Not only has the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine aided in the diagnosis and treatment of countless patients, it has also helped thousands of students prepare and
pass examinations. Size isn't everything, and that certainly is true here. Common clinical questions are answered clearly and extensively, while weird and wonderful conditions, which are rarely encountered, also get a good crack at the whip. They say the proof is in the pudding, and the fact that
this book has sold more than a million copies worldwide speaks volumes"
"This handbook goes from strength to strength...[staying] abreast of the breathtaking advances in clinical practice...it can take rough handling and is ideal for junior hospital doctors, medical students and GPs...it's packed with practical, easy-to-read advice... it is a huge topic and a bold
task to cover it in such a small portable volume but...it manages this admirably well...packed with facts, knowledge and...is an intensely practical book. If you are stuck on what to do next in managing a patients, this is the book...there is no padding here...[it is a very modern, relevant and
highly readable format...superb value for money."
--Dr Harry Brown December 2004
"This is one of the most useful books you can own if you are involved in the day-to-day management of patients and conditions... Get it! Now!"
--Imperial College of Medicine Gazette November 2004
`If you want to understand how doctors are taught to think - how so many, how most of them do think - read the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine. It's oddly and deeply moving Now in its eighth edition, it still bulges in the pockets or on the iPhone of every scared house doctor on his or
her first night on the ward, giving comfort and reassurance. Not just about what to do or how to do it, but about human compassion.'
The Week, July 2012
`This is a very useful reference book which answers a direct question that a clinician has about general medicine, usually with a patient in mind...the book has to be readable, straight to the point, no waffling, up to date and comprehensive. That is a big ask for a handbook smaller in size
than the BNF and roughly the same thickness. Yet astonishingly, it measures up to all these demands and more. It is an excellent reference source, ideal for the desktop for a GP or outpatient clinic and is reasonably mobile. Its layout lends itself very easily to be quickly dipped in; information
extracted and move on to deal with the patient and solve their problem. The language is accessible, scholarly yet easy to read and practical and the scope of coverage is amazing, considering the size of the book. This book remains the gold standard for a fantastic handbook of medicine and remains
like its predecessors, truly outstanding. Highly recommended.'
"All medical students should own an OHCM...the best tutor you'll ever have."
--Oxford Medical School Gazette 2011
`...a truly indispensable medical gem.'
`...it has not lost any of its fantastic attributes and still remains a top class book...The language is accessible, scholarly yet easy to read and practical and the scope of coverage is amazing, considering the size of the book.'
Dr Harry Brown
"This handbook is one I wish I were able to author. It is clearly one of the best with its accurate and comprehensive fund of knowledge and its emphasis on the human aspect, written by compassionate educators. I highly recommend it to all clinicians on both sides of the Atlantic."
--Vincent F Carr Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
