"Intended for new doctors or those finishing the last year ofmedical school, this handbook provides a practical introduction tohandling common medical scenarios, as well as discussion of thedaily work life of a doctor." (Book News, 1 August 2011) "The Hands-on Guide for Junior Doctors is a one stop guide for anew, and perhaps nervous graduate from medical school who is aboutto start their first job in August. It s a manual that tellsyou exactly what to expect and what to do at your job. After graduating from medical school, our brains may be brimmingwith medical knowledge, facts and figures. However, this does notin any way prepare us for the practical aspects of the job. Thistitle literally takes you on a journey of every possible situationand scenario that you may encounter as a JD. It identifies theproblem and chalks out a detailed management plan that JD can useand implement at their jobs. Another great element of the book is the section commoncalls . It lists and goes through all the medical issues thatJDs usually get called for. There is a very resourceful andsystematic approach described to tackle each problem. So, while atmedical school we are taught what are the things we need to do forchest pain, this book literally tell you step by step what to do.The title is just like a car manual! I think the layout and content is excellent. It s a quickand easy read. It covers all the main topics. The table of contentsis very thorough and makes any topic easy to find. I am not sure ofany other book in the market that achieves what this title verybeautifully captures. I would recommend the book to every newgraduate starting their first job! The book is an insiderinformation guide that can take many months to learn. With the helpof this book, the information and resources are at your finger tipsbefore you even start!
