Kumar and Clark's Clinical Medicine is known, respected and admired by medical students, doctors and health professionals throughout the world. It provides in one volume a comprehensive and authoritative source of information on the management and treatment of medical problems. Clarity of writing, a hallmark of Kumar and Clark, has been combined with a colourful and attractive presentation and a companion website to produce a complete resource of medical information. Kumar and Clark is now regarded as the one book that every aspiring and qualified doctor should own.
Kumar & Clark's Clinical Medicine 8 builds on the prize-winning formula that won the first prize in the BMA Book Awards Medicine Category first prize winner in 2010 and 2006.
'This book is comprehensive, student friendly (if still intimidating in size!) and covers such a vast breadth of knowledge. It still remains the primary 'must-have' text book of any budding doctor, or qualified one at that. This book is stunning in its breadth and in its ease of use. It still remains as the 'gold-standard' thorough guide to clinical medicine its forefathers were.' BMA Judges 2010
