This new edition of the Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme provides everything you need to excel in your first two years as a doctor. Building on the success of the previous editions, and the valuable feedback from junior and senior doctors, the third edition has been extensively revised and updated. The handbook is now in full colour, which has been used to make the facts stand out and to simplify navigation to the right page. The sections on prescribing and drug doses, emergencies, and clinical medicine have been expanded and reordered. This includes the addition of a 'pharmacopeia' with key information for commonly-prescribed drugs including dose, contraindications, and key side-effects. Along with the latest in clinical practice, the handbook includes the parts of the job rarely covered at medical school such as day-to-day life on the wards, referrals, clerking patients, procedures, and hospital paperwork, as well as providing advice on ethics, communication, and what to do when things go wrong. The handbook has practical tips on the current career system, Foundation Programme requirements, MMC, completing your portfolio, interviews, application forms, and how to get published. With practical advice from the authors' personal experience, and key evidence-based clinical information. This handbook is the ultimate quick-reference survival guide to the Foundation Programme and is indispensible for all junior doctors.
