Aimed at medical students and junior doctors, A Textbook of General Practice 2e incorporates the essential information that a student needs to know and understand about general practice and being a general practitioner. The learning style of the book is based on experiential and reflective principles in keeping with modern educative theory and practice. It addresses changes in the curriculum and provides guidance on practical skills, the theory of providing good medicine and the larger considerations of encouraging life long learning and professional development. This is a relatively new approach, in line with the GMCs recommendations and the MRCGP exams.
The new edition builds on the successful formula of the first, by thoroughly reviewing and revising all content. Self-assessment sections have been added to all chapters and a glossary of terms is included at the end of the book. Thinking/discussion points have been extended and additional student quotes included.
