Kumar & Clark’s Clinical Medicine

8 builds on the prize-winning formula that won the first prize in the BMA Book Awards Medicine Category in 2010 (7th edition) and 2006 (6th edition).

‘This book is comprehensive, student friendly (if still intimidating in size!) and covers such a vast breadth of knowledge. It still remains the primary ‘must-have’ text book of any budding doctor, or qualified one at that. This book is stunning in its breadth and in its ease of use. It still remains as the ‘gold-standard’ thorough guide to clinical medicine its forefathers were.’ BMA Judges 2010

'This is one of a select few books that deserves to be in most doctors' personal possession and it's as simple as that. ...’ Dr Harry Brown.
