Paediatrics: a clinical handbook provides all the essential information required for a successful paediatrics rotation. Written by two recently qualified junior doctors and a consultant paediatrician, the book offers an exam-centred, reader-friendly style backed up with concise clinical guidance.

Building on the success of the other ‘Clinical Handbook’ titles (Rheumatology and Psychiatry), Paediatrics: a clinical handbook provides reader-friendly coverage of the subject in an attractive full-colour design. To help the reader get to grips with the subject quickly and easily, the book features a wide variety of learning aids including mnemonics, numerous clinical photos, OSCE tips, red flag boxes and rapid diagnosis boxes.

Paediatrics: a clinical handbook is ideal for medical students and junior doctors; like the other books in the series it will also appeal to medics who want a quick refresher of the subject.
