'Best book' in Medicine, Surgery, Gynae & Pediatrics (th
I am eager to know if one student wants to read 'only one book' in each subject, what are his/her choices in final year?........... For both theory & practical/clinics in Medicine, Surgery, Gynae & pediatrics?
seniors who have passed MBBS should express their opinion for our benefit. As our time is short, I can not cope up with many books. Plz, Plz opine. [/u]

UNANSWERED: Creating separate cadre for mbbs in teaching faculty in medical colleges as tutors / demonstrators.

It seems nice. All are foreign books. and textbooks.
Any idea about clinical/practical books on those subjects?


sigmundfreud
Aim FMGE

all these books have (mini) handbooks for quick revision.for exam purposes.

for clinical purpose i would not suggest any books, i would rather say learn it through experience. digest all concepts n apply them in ur own style..

however u should read all books by das for surgery.


sigmundfreud
Aim FMGE

ob-gyn. if u read williams ob- ur knowledge will be very good. it does not impose hard n fast statements. it says the results of various studies n advises the most sensible approach. a evidence-based learning book.

pedia- u should read indian books, cos like the basic immunization program is different in different places.
for example- i graduated in philippines. here we have EPI that does nt include hep-B. but indian program has hep-B.

pedia- opghai

surgery - das is needed , cos..... certain skin lesions n mass n opd common lesions are very well explained in das. in western countries may be there are rare..
example- carbuncle topic is sexy in das.

plus.
in western countries, only TURP. in scwartz. u can never find descriptions of open prostatectomy in shwartz..
but in das he's mentioned 4 different types of open methods.

u cant find boas sign mentioned in shwartz, but u can find it in das.

so put together , u can literally read any book, anything..

all that matters is ur own unique way of assimilating everything.

all the best for ur exams!!!


sigmundfreud
Aim FMGE

for gyne u can read novaks.
and also for operative gyn u can read williams gyne.
operative gyne is best in williams gyne.


sigmundfreud
Aim FMGE

for medicine, no one book will be enough.

u can read harrison , davidson . plus u got to incorporate all recent guidelines of ur locality. thats the key in medicine.


sigmundfreud
Aim FMGE

for medicine n surgery read as many books possible. read different books for ECG, and develop ur own way of quick interpretation.

surgery n medicine read radio also side by side. at night times in ER you may be the radiologist too.lol!

basically try to grasp all radiological concepts from many books..

I don't think Elsevier Joshi's book is sufficient to pass in final. It is fomatted in the style of mcleod's with a half-hearted abortive attempt.
I will be happy to know other friend's opinion.
What my friend's opinion regarding Kundu's Medicine & Bate's Medicine?

Books
Dear usha,

Theory books:

Med - Davidson is enough; prep from george mathews if time limited.

Surg - Bailey n love; manipal manual for quick study

Paed - O P Ghai; Santhosh kumar - handbook of paed[my unit cheif - paed - SAT kerala] + SAT protocol for sick children [i only read these two, some topics from ghai]

Obs - Sheila B [my prof at SAT kerala]
Gyn - Sheila B. These two books recommended by Nov AIIMS rank 1 Dr.Jineesh also.


Clinical:

Med - Consensus on clinical exam : Dept of Int.Med, MCH,TVM.(essentially a condensed form of all satndard clinical exm books) read hutchison a bit. + Kundu - must read. (Alagappan said to be good - i never had to read it)

Surg - Das + Makkan singh - clinical cases : selective reading only

Paed - Lectures and ur hosp based clinical notes enough [we had examinatn protocols from dept itself] + Santhosh kumar clinical book for ref.

O&G - Clinical notes enough [we had dept protocol notes too] Sheila B is clinically oriented. I found it enuf.

vishnumsath, thanks a lot for taking the trouble to write for us. It is a very helpful & thought-provoking answer.
So, for CLINICALS in summary, Arup Kumar Kundu's Medicine, S. Das's Surgery, Gynae & Obs class notes, & Pediatrics hospital-based notes are enough to acquire knowledge as well as to pass smoothly in Final exam.
I remain indebted to you all.
Thanks again
