This pocket reference guide is a must for all medical students and junior doctors
preparing for exams in pharmacology or needing a rapid reminder during a clinical
In light of the growing pressures on those who prescribe drugs to patients, increasing emphasis has been placed on the importance of pharmacology in the undergraduate medical curriculum. Rapid Clinical Pharmacology, with its concise, easy-to-use approach, offers an appealing format for students to use in both clinical practice and exam preparation and its ‘one-page per drug/class' layout easily facilitates the generation of a personal student formulary.
Each chapter of the book mirrors each section of the BNF to allow easy cross-referencing and then each chapter is divided into consistent sections as per other books in the Rapid series.
Rapid Clinical Pharmacology will also be available as a mobile application for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Blackberry. See wiley.com/go/mededapps for further details.
