'This wonderful little book encompasses all we are striving to achieve in our undergraduate clinical skills curriculum at Barts and the London. It encourages the reader to integrate the fundamental skills required in each of the major clinical systems with the underlying anatomy. This innovative approach has raised the bar yet again for educators and students alike. Professor Lumley's enthusiasm, skill and knowledge of these subjects shine through and I would encourage all clinicians, from novice to expert, to make use of this excellent pocket guide'. Adam Feather - Lead for Clinical Skills at Barts London Medical School 'The excellent images relate surface anatomy to the underlying structures.’ 4th year student, Manchester University 'Very useful and an excellent way to revise my clinical examination skills. The book is succinct with good illustration and is a handy, pocket-sized book that I can take onto the wards.' Imran Ansari, 5th year Medical Student, Leeds University This new "DIY Clinical Examination" is a superb,compact book ideal for the student of today who has a very minimal knowledge of the clinical anatomy on which this comprehensive and magnificently illustrated handbook is based. Prof Lumley is a very experienced teacher of clinical examination and this is the pinnacle of 40 years of bedside experience in a highly visual and easily digested format. I will be recommending it to all students in Warwick Post Graduate Medical School. Peter Abrahams MBBS FRCS(ED) FRCR DO(Hon) Prof. of Clinical Anatomy, University of Warwick.
