The Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences and Oxford Asssess and Progress: Medical Sciences are now available as a value-for-money pack.
Written by biomedical scientists and clinicians to disseminate the fundamental scientific principles that underpin clinical medicine, the new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences provides a clear, easily digestible account of basic cell physiology and biochemistry, and an investigation of the traditional piers of medicine (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and pharmacology) integrated in the context of each of the major systems relevant to the human body. This illustrated guide is cross-referenced to the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicineto help set medical science in a clinical context.
Oxford Assess and Progress: Medical Sciences is a unique revision resource for students written by practising clinicians and overseen by experts in medical education and assessment. Over 290 SBAs and EMQs cover all the core topics you need to know, with extensive feedback on each question explaining why the correct answer is best and cross-references to the Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences and other key texts. Each question is rated by difficultly in order to help you track your progress and maximize your revision time.
Together, the Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences and Oxford Assess and Progress: Medical Sciences form an invaluable resource for medical students, students of biomedical sciences, and junior doctors wishing to consolidate their knowledge of medical sciences.
Readership: UK medical students revising for exams, foundation doctors looking to refresh their knowledge of the medical sciences, medical educators looking for teaching material, students studying any of the traditional biomedical sciences.
"It is remarkable how closely the Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences follows the breadth and depth of the curriculum at my medical school... All in all I would recommend this text highly to anyone who wants to be able to find clear, reliable answers to their basic questions or gaps in their knowledge without having to sift through huge textbooks.

"Oxford Assess and Progress: Medical Sciences is a fantastic, unique resource, assessing the application of basic science to clinical problems. The problems are varied and realistic and so this is not just good exam preparation but it's also good fun! " - Tom Kelley, Junior Doctor, UK
"I am a convert to this revision tool which uniquely has its assessments pitched at graded levels of rigour to meet the needs of medical students and junior doctors alike. The balance of clinical and medical sciences in the clinical sceanrio lead-ins and the answer feedbacks makes for an invaluable learning resource. " - Dr Roger Searle, Director of Anatomy and Clinical Skills, The Medical School, University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK
