Now in its Sixth Edition, Essentials of Family Medicine is a comprehensive introduction to family medicine for clerkship students. It is organized into three sections—principles of family medicine, preventive care, and common problems—and includes chapters on evidence-based medicine and complementary therapies. The text has a user-friendly writing style, focuses on common clinical problems, and uses case studies to show practical applications of key concepts. A companion website offers the fully searchable text.
The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.
