Specialist Training in Sexually Transmitted Infections and HIV
- Daniel Clutterbuck, MD, Consultant, Genitourinary Medicine, Physician, Lothian University Hospitals, Edinburgh, UK
This innovative resource is a "bridge" between an introductory survey text and a very large, comprehensive reference designed for the specialist, while retaining the best qualities of each. Its comprehensive, concisely presented coverage encompasses all aspects of the diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients with sexually transmitted infections and HIV. Evidence-based treatment options are presented whenever possible, and references direct readers to more in-depth sources. Full-color illustrations and photographs, bulleted lists, and tables make information easy to access and bring the text to life.
The doctor starting specialist registrar training in infectious diseases or STIs (in reality the books should find a broader market to include house officers, senior house officers, specialist nurses etc)
