Pre-publication reviews

"I'd have loved to have discovered this book during my own paediatric rotation and exams! It's got lots of colourful illustrations and is really interesting and easy to read. It's a great text to use both as an introduction to paediatrics, as well as a brilliant revision guide. Definitely recommended to anyone trying to get to grips with the basics of paediatrics!"
Final year student, Oxford University

"there is no other undergraduate textbook of Paediatrics available that offers such a concise yet complete exposition of the subject."
Final year student, Imperial Medical School

"the best description and approach I've ever read to the notoriously difficult and problematic topic of paediatric history and examination"
Fourth year student, Southampton Medical School

"the content is pared down to cover what students need to know and no more"
PhD student, Barts and QM medical school, London

"Almost the perfect paediatrics textbook...this should be a really useful book"
Fifth year student, Oxford University

From the Back Cover:

This is the definitive guide to Paediatrics and Child Health. A brand new exciting edition completely revised and updated, written by an expert team from Leeds University.


Paediatrics and Child Health follows a symptoms and problem-based to provide medical students with the tools to become competent diagnosticians. The book focuses on the full development of a child from newborn all the way through to adolescence.


The book is in full colour throughout, using high quality photographs and line drawings to help the reader visualise the concepts and procedures as discussed in the text. The layout is clear and well structured, with clear use of colour and design to help navigate around the topics.


Each chapter commences with a ‘Finding your way around’ mind-map that provides a visual overview of the differential diagnosis for a symptom and highlights the common and important conditions. Learning objectives are also outlined to show medical students the knowledge, skills and attitudes they should acquire.


‘At a Glance’ boxes have been used throughout the text to summarise all key information on a particular topic and are designed as a rapid revision aid.


Self-assessment is covered in the form of multiple choice questions which are included in the ‘Test Your Knowledge’ section at the end of the book. These questions will help the students to reinforce their knowledge and enable them to identify gaps in their learning - forming an invaluable part of their revision programme.


An additional bonus feature is a brand new free CD-ROM (included in this book) that contains narrated video clips of child examination techniques, with many useful hints and tips. This shows clearly how to put your knowledge into practice.


Paediatrics and Child Health is perfect for medical students, junior doctors on Foundation Programmes, General Practitioners, paediatric nurses and MRCPCH examination candidates.
