Clinical Cases for General Practice Exams 3rd Edition assists candidates preparing for the Australian general practice clinical examination, an exam which all doctors must pass to practice as a General Practitioner in Australia. This third edition maintains the role-play style of the successful previous editions, where students use a variety of case studies to practice their clinical examination skills. All cases from the previous edition have been revised and updated, and 16 new cases have been added. New cases cover the following topics: aged care; child health; dermatology; gastroenterology; multicultural health; musculoskeletal medicine; palliative care; professional practice; respiratory medicine; sexual health; travel medicine, and women's health.

All cases include instructions for both the exam candidate and the patient, with suggested approaches as well as up-to-date references and further readings. The format is ideal for students, international medical graduates and general practice training programs. Clinical Cases for General Practice Exams 3rd Edition is a well-regarded resource for all GP Registrars studying for their RACGP Fellowship exams which are a mandatory requirement to be able to practice without supervision in Australia.
