Essentials of Kumar and Clark’s Clinical Medicine, 5th Edition (Pocket Essentials)


Anne Ballinger MD FRCP (Author)


Mini Kumar & Clark goes into its fifth edition! New to this best-selling, portable, quick reference to clinical medicine:

  • Fully updated in line with the latest edition of Kumar & Clark’s Clinical Medicine
  • New chapter on malignant disease
  • Practical procedures and therapeutics taken into individual chapters as appropriate.

From reviews of the previous edition:

‘This really is an excellent medical textbook . Easily covers undergraduate medicine.’

‘Pocket Essentials is a great little book to review the night before you start on a rotation. It is small enough that you can easily read over the chapter and then appear on the ward with a good idea of what is going on.’

‘In short this book is concise, succinct and gets straight to the point.’

‘This book summarises everything you need to know: causes, diagnoses and treatments.’

‘I am finding this book very helpful and more importantly very concise. It has most things you need to know about common clinical pathologies.’

‘. I turned to Pocket Essentials of Clinical Medicine as my clinical medicine reference guide – and what a guide! An excellent book, which gives you the clinical features, investigations and management for a whole variety of different illnesses. The book is clearly laid out, and even has normal blood chemistry values at the end. Do yourself a favour and buy this book!’

‘This mini paperback is a must for anyone studying medicine. It gives all the information one would need and all without the pain of carrying around a large book.’

‘I liked this book . it was useful having a smaller reference book . to carry around on wards etc. – it’s more digestible and easier to follow than big K&C, and gives a little more background than the Oxford Handbook – and I know people who use it to revise for finals.’
