Pre-Clinical Medicine – this book will help medics pass their intermediate exams in order to proceed to the clinical years
Over the past few years, medical school exams have changed dramatically in an attempt to imitate the style of postgraduate exams. Many question and answer books that have been released have primarily focused on clinical medicine and are aimed at final-year students.
The road toward qualification as a junior doctor is paved with a long series of assessments and exams. As junior doctors, we are aware of the tendency medical students have to concentrate on clinical medicine, as it is most relevant and most interesting. However, it is essential that a good foundation on basic sciences is developed before proceeding onto the clinical components of medicine. That is why we felt it was vital for students to have access to high-quality practice questions to aid learning in pre-clinical medicine and provide feedback.
In Pre-Clinical Medicine, we have produced questions and answers on pre-clinical medicine covering the core areas of each organ system. The aim is to integrate other disciplines of medicine with each question to encourage application of knowledge. We have endeavoured to make this book a useful resource for exam revision in the pre-clinical phase. We hope this book will provide you with the information required en route to the successful completion of the pre-clinical phase of medical school.
