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

Topics reflect information needs stemming from today’s integrated undergraduate and foundation courses:

  • Common presentations
  • Investigation options (e.g. ECG, imaging)
  • Clinical and patient-orientated skills (e.g. examinations, history-taking)

The highly-structured, bite-size content helps novices combat the ‘fear factor’ associated with day-to-day clinical training, and provides a detailed resource that students and junior doctors can carry in their pocket.   

Key points

  • Ear, nose & throat disorders account for a high proportion of the problems that students and junior doctors see during GP, A&E, paediatric & surgical rotations, but they receive little formal ENT training
  • Logical, building-block approach to content: initial chapter on relevant anatomy and physiology, followed by focus on ENT examination. Subsequent chapters describe specific disorders
  • Fully-updated second edition contains brand new diagnostic algorithms for effective decision making, expanded rhinology chapter and full-colour illustrations
