About the Author

Matthew Wood is an Obstetrics and Gynaecology specialty trainee, currently in the role of Senior Clinical Research Fellow in Robotic Gynaecology surgery at University Hospitals of Leicester. He graduated with distinction from the University of Southampton. He has extensive teaching experience, having taught students from five medical schools, written for four medical student textbooks, and has lectured on postgraduate exam courses internationally. Katherine Lattey is a foundation year two doctor based in the North West Thames deanary of London, currently working at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington. She graduated with distinction in both her undergraduate medical degree and her intercalated Masters in Maternal and Fetal Health. She has presented work nationally and internationally, particularly in the fields of obstetrics and medical education. In 2014 she won the student prize for the best poster after presenting work regarding the Unofficial Guide to Medicine project at the UK Association of Study of Medical Education. She is passionate about all elements of women's health and will apply for training in obstetrics and gynaecology. Zeshan Qureshi is a Paediatrician based at Great Ormond Street and the Institute of Child Health. He graduated with distinction from the University of Southampton, and has published and presented research work extensively and internationally in the fields of pharmacology and medical education. Whilst working in Edinburgh he was part of the leadership team developing a near peer teaching programme, where by junior doctors, throughout south east scotland, were both trained to teach, and delivered teaching across every hospital in the area. This book is an extension of this philosophy: that junior doctors and fresh graduates know how to express complex ideas in order for it to be easily understood from a students perspective. That junior doctors can teach, and write in a complimentary way to senior doctors: one that is friendly and fun, easy to read and relevant to both exams, and the day to day to life of junior doctors.


"The perfect guide to unpack the complexity of O&G and navigate the clinical environment. This book will help bring the joy back to student attachments, with no nonsense explanation and clarity" Helen Bickerstaff, Senior Lecturer in Medical Education, Honorary Consultant Gynaecologist, Kings College London, UK; "A strength of this book is the integration of anatomy, physiology, practical skills, imaging, clinical management and therapeutics in one place, allowing you to gain a full understanding of each condition. It is suited to those who want a summary resource to thoroughly revise O&G for medical school finals, but equally has further detail for those who have a specific interest in the topic. The skills sections of the book guide you through obstetric palpation, demystify CTG interpretation and provide guidance on how to professionally and sensitively perform pelvic examination. The content of the practical skills components provides a clear structure and step-by-step guide to ensure precise and efficient examinations, suitable for the time constraints and pressure of OSCEs. All that's left to do is practice!" Chloe Knox, President of Brighton and Sussex Medical School Obstetrics and Gynaecology Society, UK; "This book makes a significant contribution to undergraduate and postgraduate learning and understanding of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Katherine Lattey was an excellent student at BSMS and early in her training became involved in women's health. It is a real pleasure to see her commitment and hard work reflected in the publication of a contemporary textbook." Dr Andrew N J Fish, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist and Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, UK
