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

  • Highly-affordable price and convenient pocket-size format
  • Breaks down a subject that students find complex and daunting, using clear images, concise and informative text, and specific management scenarios
  • Logical, building-block approach to content: initial chapter on obesity and causes of diabetes, followed by focus on clinical features and management. Subsequent chapters address the complications of diabetes, including their epidemiology and management
  • Additional focus on prevention, psychological strategies, tips for motivating patients
  • Up-to-date: includes recommendations by the American Diabetes Association Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes 2017
