Essential Endocrinology and Diabetes 6E

This book 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. This textbook aims to bridge the gap from basic science training, through clinical training, to the knowledge required for the early postgraduate years and specialist training. The text goes beyond core undergraduate medical education. Learning objectives, boxes, and concluding ‘key points’ aim to emphasize the major topics.

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
The first part strives to create a knowledgeable reader prepared for the clinical sections.
The second part retains a largely organ-based approach. The introductory basic science in these chapters aims to be concise yet sufficient to understand, diagnose and manage the associated clinical disorders.
The third part on diabetes and obesity was entirely new in the last edition and these chapters have undergone the greatest change here.
