Description

This useful new book enables students to apply the theoretical knowledge gained in their medicine classes to clinical cases.

Students will improve their diagnostic skills as they are taken simply and logically through the steps of generating a differential diagnosis, weighing up evidence to refine a hypothesis, and constructing a management plan. Author Samy Azer guides readers to use self-directed learning to identify their learning needs and ultimately develop a deeper understanding of internal medicine.

Designed to complement and enhance recommended undergraduate medicine textbooks, this book is easy to follow and written simply, making it suitable for students who speak English as a second language.
