Cardiology to Impress: The Ultimate Guide for Students and Junior Doctors
Cardiology to Impress is the ultimate guidebook for medical students preparing for the clinical experience. It is written in collaboration with top teaching consultants and newly qualified doctors who are familiar with the pitfalls of clinical attachments, and understand the fears and apprehensions when students are thrown into difficult exams and the hospital setting. This pocket-size handbook specifically outlines what medical students are to expect, and what is expected of them in clinics, theatres and in exam settings. It teaches how to be competent in front of senior doctors and provides useful tips on how to answer questions on ward rounds. This book does not mindlessly regurgitate facts, rather it tailors the facts to the clinical setting, thus bridging the gap between textbook knowledge and clinical practice in a way that enables the student to understand, and appreciate the clinical relevance of medical knowledge.
