Edited by Andrew Goldberg (The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford, UK) & Gerard Stansby (Newcastle University & Freeman Hospital, Newcastle Hospitals NHS Trust, UK).
As the first in the “Clinical Talk” series, the philosophy of this book is to have a set of question-based sections to help a final-year medical student prepare for exams. These sections include multiple choice questions (MCQs), extended matching questions (EMQs) and case studies. The idea is to have not just a “test yourself” book, but one which students can work through as a learning exercise as well as for revision purposes. For that reason, the answers and explanations provided here are just as important as the questions themselves.
Stansby and Goldberg have structured this book such that it complements one
