About this book

Essential information for all junior doctors.

You are close to qualifying or you have already qualified. You are prepared to take on the working world of referrals, hospital jobs and the pager. Medical school taught you clinical anatomy, but possibly not clinical diplomacy. You have learnt how to diagnose illness but not how to identify trouble on the ward, or more importantly, how to avoid it.

Written by a doctor concerned by how little medical school prepares you for the blunt reality of life in a hospital environment, What They Didn’t Teach You at Medical School is an indispensable guide to help you sidestep the pitfalls of the job and achieve the heights expected by all consultants.

Divided into concise, advice-packed chapters, readers will learn how to:

• stop your pager going off

• work well with other medical specialists

• refer patients and prevent referrals being ‘bounced back’

• keep your seniors smiling

• get on with nurses

• get a job and a career path

This book will help you in becoming an experienced doctor, impressing your peers and helping you fast-track your career. Above all, this guide will help you to hit the ground running and give you a head start in the increasingly competitive medical world.

About the authors

Dr Alan Parbhoo is a Senior Surgical House Officer at the Royal Free Hospital in London. Concerned by how little medical school prepared the average student for the blunt reality of life in a hospital environment, he has written this series of chapters to assist in moving from the medical school to the medical workplace.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book is designed to be a resource guide for what is not taught in theory classes in medical school or in clinical rotations. … The purpose is to guide medical students and then new doctors as they begin their careers in a hospital setting. … The book is written for medical students about to graduate, or newly graduated doctors who are beginning their first job or residency. The author has experienced what he has written about." (Susan C. Weltz, Doody's Review Service, August, 2007)
