As ubiquitous in hospitals as stethoscopes, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is a guiding star for all medical students, junior doctors, and residents. The culmination of more than 20 years of clinical experience, and containing the knowledge and insight gained by more than 15 authors, the new eighth edition continues to be the definitive pocket-sized guide to today's clinical medicine.
Packed with clear, clinical management advice which is practical to implement at the bed-side, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is written in a clear and didactic style. With witty, esoteric asides liking medicine to everything from the classics to popular culture, all the material is presented in a way that is instantly memorable and even easier to put into practice.
With extensive improvements based on reader feedback, the new eighth edition boasts even more black and white and full-color images, which are now larger to improve their clarity and ease-of-use. Mindful of how doctors' training is constantly evolving, a new chapter on "history and examination" explores this relevant critical skill in depth, enabling you to elicit as much information from the patient as possible. An expanded radiology chapter features improved images, and new topics are devoted to new cancers such as noscomial infections, and further common surgical procedures. The references have been thoroughly overhauled with "key references" identifying the best places to start when researching the subject, and all references are fully accessibel via the supporting website.
Loved and trusted by generations of doctors, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is a reassuring beacon of wisdom, knowledge, and skills, that is forever in your sight.

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"
--Hospital Doctor February 2005
"This handbook goes from strength to strength as each edition keeps abreast of the breathtaking advances in clinical practice... It comes with the now familiar plastic flexicover which means it can take rough handling. It is ideal for junior hospital doctors, medical students and GPs and is
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 like the preceeding editions, it manages this admirably well... It is packed with facts, knowledge and most important of all, it is an intensely practical book. If you are
stuck on what to do next in managing a patient, this is the book to look up... There is no padding here; it is fact, solutions and advice all the way. All the information is very modern, relevant and presented in a highly readable format. It is ideal for both hospital doctors, GPs and their
registrars and is 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!"
