Beautifully presented, and now in full colour, the sixth edition of
Essential Endocrinology and Diabetes is fully up-to-date with the
latest knowledge and concepts on the workings of the endocrine system. It
explains the key principles of endocrine physiology in an easy reading style
popular with students, clinicians and scientists. The invaluable background on
basic science and investigation, including new molecular
techniques,provides the foundation for detailed discussion of the
diagnosis and management of clinical endocrine disorders and diabetes.
The teaching style and presentation has been strengthened
throughout, and includes learning objectives and ?recap? links at the beginning
of each chapter that remind the reader of key findings and principles, while
cross-referencing makes it easy to locate related information quickly and
efficiently. There are also more case studies, with detailed answers applying
theory to practice.
Endocrinology and Diabetes is the perfect resource for a course on endocrinology and diabetes, as part
of USMLE teaching, and an on-going companion during postgraduate clinical and
scientific study. It is accompanied by a FREE enhanced Wiley Desktop
Edition - the interactive, digital version of the book - featuring
downloadable text and images, highlighting and note taking facilities,
book-marking, cross-referencing, in-text searching, and linking to references
and glossary terms.
