This superb guide to the neophyte doctor ranges from one’s first approach to medical school and how to cope with such a complex process right through to a doctor’s decision on which specialty career to follow eventually. As always this Oxford Handbook covers a vast range of useful, relevant material, and this particular one will be of great value to anyone seriously considering medical school for their future career choice.

The contributors are a talented group of doctors whose expertise and interests span many different clinical specialties as well as having, between them, a vast experience in clinical academic research as well as a huge commitment in the modern complex process of medical education.

I am sure this book, where the nuts and bolts of virtually every specialty are most clearly laid out, will be a most useful guide worldwide for those not only considering a career in the medical profession but even those midway through their medical careers.
