The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme returns for a new edition with clear and thorough clinical guidance and honest advice to help you excel in your first two years as a doctor.

This edition has been fully updated in line with the latest guidelines and gives you practical, step-by-step guidance on everything from neurological to gastroenterlogical presentations. Emergency presentations are easily identifiable, giving you fast access to the information you need. This edition also includes a fully revised chapter on pharmacopeia, with references to the British National Formulary, as well as chapters on practical procedures and interpreting results, acting as a guide for surviving on - and off - the wards.

The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme is also a unique resource for things they don't teach you at medical school about being a doctor and life on the wards. The authors have drawn on their own experiences and on careful research to help you understand issues ranging from pay and pension, through paperwork, stress and workplace relations, to career development.

This is an excellent resource for Foundation Programme trainees and medical students preparing themselves for life as a doctor. With this pocket-sized guide at your side you'll never be alone on the wards again.

Readership: Foundation doctors and final year medical students preparing for the Foundation Programme.

Authors: Tim Raine, James Dawson, Stephan Sanders, and Simon Eccles
