View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Hutchison’s Clinical Methods, first published over a century ago, is the classic textbook on clinical examination. It provides an outstanding source of learning and reference for undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors. It seeks to teach an integrated approach to clinical practice, so that new methods and investigations are grafted onto established patterns of clinical practice, rather than added on as something extra. The text is organised so that both system-related and problem-oriented chapters are included. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of the doctor-patient relationship, the essential skills needed for clinical examination, and for planning the appropriate choice of investigations in diagnosis and management.

  • Provides a comprehensive account of the traditional methods of patient history-taking and examination but updated with a full account of the role of modern investigative techniques.
  • A book for students of all ages and all degrees of experience.
  • The most comprehensive account of clinical methods on the market.
  • Contents re-ordered into five sections: *The approach to the patient * General assessment * Basic systems * Clinical specialties * Ethics
  • New editor joins the textbook - Dr Michael Glynn
  • Completely new text presentation and page design
  • All line drawings redrawn for improved clarity
  • New chapters on: * Nutritional assessment * Diabetes and other metabolic disorders * Intensive care unit * Pain * The face, mouth, jaws and neck

About the Author:

Michael Swash, Professor, Consultant Neurologist, Department of Neurology, The Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, London, UK


"This book covers all the examinations needed for a clinical medical student. The text is clear and the illustrations are good."
Medical Student - UK
"The quality of illustration is excellent – from the line drawings to the radiographs and colour plates...In summary, this is a book that must be indispensable to medical students who are starting their clinical work but wouldn’t be out of place as a refresher for GPs in the surgery."
Dr Jeremy Sager, Univadis, Oct 2008
