Concise Paediatrics, 2nd edition

by Rachel Sidwell (Editor), Mike Thomson (Editor)
  • Paperback

Concise Paediatrics, Second Edition is essential reading for all postgraduates training in paediatrics, particularly when preparing for the MRCPCH exam, and for general practice trainees preparing for the DCH exam. As a comprehensive but concise reference to any condition they are likely to encounter on the wards or in the accident and emergency room, it will also be invaluable to doctors in other medical specialties who come into contact with children on a regular basis.

The book is designed to provide readers with a full understanding of all of the areas covered by the MRCPCH. It is structured logically by body system, with additional chapters on such topics as genetics, infectious disease, neonatology and emergencies.

Edited by two highly experienced paediatricians—their knowledge complemented by a group of specialist contributors—it is written in a succinct, user-friendly style and includes lists, boxes and annotated diagrams to aid learning and retention of the facts.

Since the first edition was published in 2000, Concise Paediatrics has established itself as the textbook of choice for MRCPCH candidates, and will remain a "must-have" with this revised and updated second edition.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
