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:
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.
