Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with “on the go”. Their highly affordable price puts them within reach of those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment.

  • Common investigations (ECG, imaging)
  • Clinical skills (patient examination)
  • Clinical specialties that students perceive as too small to merit a textbook (psychiatry, renal medicine)

Key points

  • Breaks down a subject that students and trainees find confusing due to the number of differentials that mimic each other
  • Logical, sequential content: relevant basic science, clinical essentials and diagnostic pathways; then chapters devoted to individual disease groups within dermatology, including perinatal and paediatric
  • Descriptions of common disorders are enhanced by Clinical Scenarios (Patient presents with...), which help students and trainees to recognise and manage common presenting problems
