Medical Sciences, 2nd edition
Student Consult: Print & Online
- Jeannette Naish, Denise Syndercombe Court
An integrated approach to teaching basic sciences and clinical medicine has meant that medical students have been driven to a range of basic science textbooks to find relevant information. Medical Sciences is designed to do the integration for you. In just one book, the diverse branches of medical science are synthesised into the appropriate systems of the human body, making this an invaluable aid to approaching the basics of medicine within in a clinical context.

From customer reviews of the previous edition: 'I'm still a preclinical student, and this is as much a gold standard for me as (I've heard!) "Kumar and Clark's Clinical Medicine" is for clinical students. This is why these two gold standard texts go hand in hand so well. You've got the easy to 'dip into' "Medical Sciences" text for the physiological information and then "Clinical Medicine" for the more in-depth clinical knowledge. The breadth, depth and visual appeal of this book are astounding. I just wish I'd had it 3 years ago!' 'If there is one book any type of medical undergraduate (clinical or science) should purchase then this is it. Written in clear, concise and understandable English it details all aspects of medical science that encourage you to read further into specific or general areas, without getting clogged up in complicated medical terms and syntax. The book would be suitable even for 2nd year A level science students, providing them with a foundation for basic medical science studies as well as those areas of cell science, biochemistry and more specific subjects of human physiological systems. A great credit to the authors for the written content and the invaluable graphs, tables and diagrams which set this book so much farther apart from other medical science books. StudentConsult access is an invaluable bonus for those wanting a lighter back pack while on the move.' 'I'm off to medical school in September as a mature student, and am generally panicking about how much science I've forgotten since school days, and how to approach the vast amount of science needed in order to study medicine. I saw this book in the hospital library (I'd been perusing for useful texts) and it immediately appealed. I've had it on loan and now definitely need to buy my own copy! It has thorough but simple explanations of the science you need to understand physiological processes. It doesn't assume too much and explains everything but soon goes into detail. I
