There is a growing trend at medical school to teach oncology and haematology in parallel, not least because many common and acutely life-threatening oncological disorders have a haematological basis. Written by two recently qualified junior doctors and a consultant oncologist, the book offers an exam-centred, reader-friendly style backed up with concise clinical guidance.
Building on the success of the other ‘Clinical Handbook’ titles (Rheumatology, Psychiatry and Paediatrics), Oncology and Haematology: A Clinical Handbook provides student-friendly coverage of the material with many key features (such as mnemonics and OSCE tips) to help the reader get to grips with the subject.
