About the Book

Essentials for practice of medicine in the frontline is an abridged synthesis of selected topics from family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, pathology, and psychiatry; also, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, hematology, and dermatology. Each section covers ten salient and commonly-encountered areas of practice by physicians. Multiple-choice questions and answers accompany each Section. The setting of writing is a developing country. The contents are relevant to doctors who practice in the medically advanced countries and those in the developing countries. Medically, the world has become an interesting place. Air travel, frequent movement, and resettlement of people now mean that doctors in developed countries can no longer stay and practice within the clinical conditions that were typical in their practice settings. Things have changed, as they cannot be certain of what medical conditions that patients from various parts of the world will present to them. Doctors also cannot be unequivocal that an emergency in a distant part of the globe may not require their attention. This book therefore meets the needs of doctors, irrespective of their length of practice or where they practice. What applies to doctors certainly applies to medical students. This book is an atypical book as it puts in its two volumes of less than 500 pages of 8.5”x 11” per volume material that any doctor, anywhere, should keep on their office or consulting room bookshelf. The e-book version is also a veritable companion.
