Product Description

Review

“Also featuring self–assessment questions to help test learning, this new title will provide an invaluable resource for medical and healthcare students, junior doctors, and those preparing for a career in public health.”  ( Kingbook73′s Medical Ebook and Video Collection , 26 August 2014) “This is a useful summary that provides a quick overview so that students or professionals can acquire the basic knowledge of public health. The book is contemporary with recent references and examples. While the book presents basic concepts, the examples are from the U.K., hence their applicability is more relevant for a U.K. audience.”  ( Doody’s , 30 August 2012) Pre–publication review: “Like most other medical students I am guilty of ignoring epidemiology and not really seeing or applying its relevance to my studies. I thought this book was truly excellent in highlighting how important it is to my future career as a doctor. It was clear, concise and an enjoyable read. I feel that this book is a truly needed publication, which takes the confusion and monotony out of the subject.” (3rd year Medical Student, University of Southampton)

Covers what you need to know briefly. If you feel inspired, you then further text needed to expand on that.

Format: Paperback
You either love it or hate it when it comes to the medical school exams and the inclusion of public health and epidemiology questions. For some students these marks are like gold dust in that they can easily gain them and for others it can be the most challenging part of the book.

When I received this book, I was intrigued as to how relevant the book would be for use by a medical student. Now that I have spent some time using it, I would say that it is great to use when exams are approaching and you want a quick revision source. The book covers most if not all of the essential curriculum and details that you would need to get you through an exam.

However I would warn any student against using this book to cover the curriculum as part of your curriculum in a PBL context etc as it is not sufficient to give you all the details for this context. This however to me would appear to be suggested in the title 'at a glance' which would never seem to suggest a comprehensive cover. If as a student you are looking for a book that covers in more depth that may be sufficient for PBL this component of the course then I would advise considering the use of the Lecture Notes book on this area Lecture Notes: Epidemiology, Evidence-based Medicine and Public Health or the relevant chapter in Medical Sciences: with STUDENTCONSULT access, 1e.

Otherwise if you are looking for a book that will be sufficient for revision then strongly consider getting this title from your university library or consider purchasing it.

I bought this book as it came highly recommended, but I have found several errors in the text which detract from the book as a otherwise well-laid out and informative resource.
