About the Authors
  • Physical examination is a key element of clinical diagnosis in surgical practice, as well as an essential skill in postgraduate professional entry and exit examinations. With its “at-a-glance” algorithms, mind maps, and exam-style questions and answers, Physical Examination for Surgeons provides a concise yet authoritative guide to examination technique and differential diagnosis. Written by a team of senior surgical registrars and consultant surgeons, experienced postgraduate examiners and leading international experts, it provides a comprehensive and definitive answer to the challenges of the MRCS exam on physical examination. All surgical specialties are covered, including neurosurgery, ENT, gynaecology and transplant. It is a high-yield revision aid for the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons exam, as well as a valuable reference for the Fellowship exam (FRCS) and beyond. Of interest to trainee and practising surgeons, emergency medicine physicians, medical students and clinical nurse specialists and military healthcare practitioners.

    • One of very few books on the market to address physical examination from a surgeon's perspective
    • Algorithms and mind maps allow rapid, effective revision through visual learning methods
    • Contributions from senior postgraduate examiners give an insight into exam content and assessment style
