Extensively revised and fully updated, this new edition provides everything you need to excel in your first two years as a doctor. Following the latest curriculum for the Foundation Programme, and the latest career planning guidance, this handbook is the indispensible guide for all junior doctors.
This book gives you practical, step-by-step guidance on everything from neurological to gastroenterological presentations. Emergency presentations are highlighted in red and indexed on the inside front cover to give you fast access to the information you need. This edition also includes a fully revised chapter on pharmacopeia with references to the British National Formularly, as well as chapters on practical procedures and interpreting results.
The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme is also a unique resource for things they don't teach you at medical school about being a doctor and life on the wards. The authors have drawn on their own experiences and careful research to help you understand issues ranging from your pay and pension, stress and workplace relations, paperwork, and career development.
