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 & foundation courses:

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

Key Points

  • Highly affordable price and convenient pocket size format – fits in back pocket!
  • Logical, sequential content: the first principles of emergency imaging, then a guide to understanding a normal image and the building blocks of an abnormal image, before describing specific clinical disorders
  • Clinical disorders are illustrated by high quality radiographs, ultrasounds, CTs and MRIs,  with brief accompanying text that clearly identifies the defining feature of the image
  • Focuses on the conditions that medical students and foundation doctors are most likely to see and be tested on
