Sixth Edition

Edited by John Firth, Timothy Cox & and Christopher Conlon

Description

The Oxford Textbook of Medicine is the foremost international textbook of medicine. Unrivalled in its coverage of the scientific aspects and clinical practice of internal medicine and its subspecialties, it is a fixture in the offices and wards of physicians around the world , as well as being a key resource for medico-legal practitioners. Accessible digitally with regular updates, as well as in print, readers are provided with multiple avenues of access depending on their need and preference.

More comprehensive, more authoritative, and more international than any other textbook; Oxford Textbook of Medicine focuses on offering both perspective and practical guidance on clinical management and prevention of disease.

Introductory sections focus on the patient experience, medical ethics and clinical decision making, outlining a philosophy which has always characterized the Oxford Textbook of Medicine. It is humane, thought-provoking, and aims to instill in readers an understanding of the role of medicine in society and the contribution it can make to the health of populations, and it does not shy away from discussion of controversial aspects of modern medicine.

As always, there is detailed coverage of all areas of internal medicine by the world's very best authors. The Oxford Textbook of Medicine seeks to embody advances in understanding and practice that have arisen through scientific research. The integration of basic science and clinical practice is unparalleled, and throughout the book the implications of research for medical practice are explained. The core clinical medicine sections offer in-depth coverage of the traditional specialty areas. The Oxford Textbook of Medicine has unsurpassed detail on infectious diseases: the most comprehensive coverage to be found in any textbook of medicine. Other sections of note include stem cells and regenerative medicine; inequalities in health; medical aspects of pollution and climate change; travel and expedition medicine; bioterrorism and forensic medicine; pain; medical disorders in pregnancy; nutrition; and psychiatry and drug related problems in general medical practice. The section on acute medicine is designed to give rapid access to information when it is needed quickly.

In response to ongoing user feedback there have been substantial changes to ensure that the Oxford Textbook of Medicine continues to meet the needs of its readers. Chapter essentials give accessible overviews of the content and a new design ensures that the textbook is easy to read and navigate. The evidence-base and references continue to be at the forefront of research.

New to this edition is that purchasers of the print version of the Oxford Textbook of Medicine sixth edition will have free access on Oxford Medicine Online to all the content plus regular updates for the life of the edition.

Review

“The bible for general medicine.”

Consultant, USA

“It gives me the confidence to teach a topic outside my speciality.”

Clinical Teaching Fellow, UK

“I would highly recommend it. It’s precise, detailed, accurate and short. … It doesn’t take you long to find exactly what you need.”

Consultant, Saudi Arabia

“For updates, I always go to OTM first.”

Consultant Cardiologist, UK

“It’s useful for both the management and the classification of symptoms.”

Resident, India

“An excellent text. Your go-to comprehensive textbook in general medicine.”

Senior Specialist Registrar, UK

“I used it as a student and a newly qualified doctor. The detail is fantastic; it prepared me so well for professional practice.”

Specialist Registrar, UK

“Many hospitals worldwide don’t have access to online journals; it would cost a fortune to subscribe. So, access to the OTM is very important, and affordable.”

Staff Surgeon, USA

“It keeps me up to date – especially for a refresher in an area outside my specialism.”

Consultant, Saudi Arabia

“For clinical practice, you need something like OTM, which is digestible. It is essential these days as roles are more pressurized.”

Specialist Registrar, UK

“You know you are in good hands. It’s like a safety blanket having the OTM as a resource at your fingertips.”

Senior Specialist Registrar, UK


Reviews of the Previous Edition


"[Every doctor should], probably [read] the whole of the Oxford Textbook of Medicine."

BMJ Confidential

"... easy to read and organized intuitively, with an abundance of vivid full-color figures...The online version is superb, containing the full text as well as photographs and figures...Both the hardcover version and the online version of the Oxford Textbook of Medicine are worthy additions to any internist's library."

Journal of the American Medical Association

"One of Oxford University's great medical legends...long the close confidant and trusted aide to generations of doctors and medical students."

The American Journal of Medicine

"The latest edition benefits from internationally drawn expert contributors - they are true leaders in their retrospective fields...the book is a masterpiece and it remains relevant to the global challenge of medicine."

Hospital Medicine

"It is an invaluable source of information, well written by experts in their respective fields. It will be the first reference source I choose when questions arise as I continue to practice medicine."

Doody's

"Can we have a broader view of ourselves again as gatekeepers of the health of populations? This is an issue that is intelligently addressed. The coverage of the global burden of disease, preventive medical strategies, health policy, and costing are new and welcome additions. I found these sections to be especially thought-provoking and believe that they are valuable reading for all budding medical graduates, teachers, and researchers."

The Lancet

"The Oxford Textbook of Medicine has been regarded a sound reference book for the past twenty years, and this new, even more comprehensive, three volume edition just has to be one of the most authoritative textbooks available."

Association of Lawyers for Children

Reviews

“The bible for general medicine.”

Consultant, USA

“It gives me the confidence to teach a topic outside my speciality.”

Clinical Teaching Fellow, UK

“I would highly recommend it. It’s precise, detailed, accurate and short. … It doesn’t take you long to find exactly what you need.”

Consultant, Saudi Arabia

“For updates, I always go to OTM first.”

Consultant Cardiologist, UK

“It’s useful for both the management and the classification of symptoms.”

Resident, India

“An excellent text. Your go-to comprehensive textbook in general medicine.”

Senior Specialist Registrar, UK

“I used it as a student and a newly qualified doctor. The detail is fantastic; it prepared me so well for professional practice.”

Specialist Registrar, UK

“Many hospitals worldwide don’t have access to online journals; it would cost a fortune to subscribe. So, access to the OTM is very important, and affordable.”

Staff Surgeon, USA

“It keeps me up to date – especially for a refresher in an area outside my specialism.”

Consultant, Saudi Arabia

“For clinical practice, you need something like OTM, which is digestible. It is essential these days as roles are more pressurized.”

Specialist Registrar, UK

“You know you are in good hands. It’s like a safety blanket having the OTM as a resource at your fingertips.”

Senior Specialist Registrar, UK


Reviews of the Previous Edition


"[Every doctor should], probably [read] the whole of the Oxford Textbook of Medicine."

BMJ Confidential

"... easy to read and organized intuitively, with an abundance of vivid full-color figures...The online version is superb, containing the full text as well as photographs and figures...Both the hardcover version and the online version of the Oxford Textbook of Medicine are worthy additions to any internist's library."

Journal of the American Medical Association

"One of Oxford University's great medical legends...long the close confidant and trusted aide to generations of doctors and medical students."

The American Journal of Medicine

"The latest edition benefits from internationally drawn expert contributors - they are true leaders in their retrospective fields...the book is a masterpiece and it remains relevant to the global challenge of medicine."

Hospital Medicine

"It is an invaluable source of information, well written by experts in their respective fields. It will be the first reference source I choose when questions arise as I continue to practice medicine."

Doody's

"Can we have a broader view of ourselves again as gatekeepers of the health of populations? This is an issue that is intelligently addressed. The coverage of the global burden of disease, preventive medical strategies, health policy, and costing are new and welcome additions. I found these sections to be especially thought-provoking and believe that they are valuable reading for all budding medical graduates, teachers, and researchers."

The Lancet

"The Oxford Textbook of Medicine has been regarded a sound reference book for the past twenty years, and this new, even more comprehensive, three volume edition just has to be one of the most authoritative textbooks available."

Association of Lawyers for Children
