In spite of years of tuition and examination, newly qualified doctors are often left inadequately prepared for real-world clinical practice. The major concern is that 'book knowledge' gleaned at medical school does not always translate to safe and effective practical knowhow. Based on the author's many years of expertise as an educator globally, this book helps final-year students make the difficult transition to first-year doctors. Drawing on the latest evidence-based information, it focuses on aspects important to clinical practice in the areas of gastroenterology, cardiology and respiratory medicine such as differentials, investigations and management with full references provided throughout. Also detailed are examination skills; although not the routine form of how to examine but what to be thinking when asked to examine: what conditions should be prevalent in a doctor's mind? And how can these conclusions be reached before even seeing the patient? Practical knowledge like this defines an effective clinician. Clear, concise and rigorous in its approach, these three volumes are indispensable companions to any new doctor in the above fields.

2013 BMA Medical Book Awards Highly Commended in Basis of Medicine! Essential Skills for a Medical Teacher is a new book that will serve as a perfect introduction for new teachers to the exciting opportunities facing them, whether they are working in undergraduate, postgraduate or continuing education. It will also be of considerable use to more experienced teachers to review and assess their own practice and gain a new perspective on how best to facilitate their students' or trainees' learning. The contents are based on the authors’ extensive experience of what works in medical education, whether in teaching and curriculum planning or in the organisation of faculty development courses in medical education at basic and advanced levels. About the authors Ronald M Harden is General Secretary for the Association of Medical Education in Europe, Editor of Medical Teacher, former Professor of Medical Education, Director of the Centre for Medical Education and Teaching Dean at the University of Dundee, UK and Professor of Medical Education at Al-Imam University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Throughout the book introduces some key basic principles that underpin the practical advice that is given and which will help to inform teaching practice. This book will assist readers to reflect on and analyse with colleagues the different ways that their work as a teacher or trainer can be approached and how their student or trainee's learning can be made more effective.
