Written by a team of medical experts, this market-leading illustrated dictionary contains 12,400 authoritative entries covering all aspects of medical science. The text has been fully revised and updated for this new edition to reflect the very latest in medical knowledge and practice. Entries are accessible and jargon-free and are complemented by over 145 illustrations and diagrams. This brand new edition includes over 450 new entries and features up-to-date coverage of public health medicine and general practice, drugs and pharmacology, endocrinology (particularly diabetology), and cardiology, amongst other specialist areas. Recommended web links are provided for many entries, accessible and kept up to date via a companion webpage on oxfordreference.com, and appendices have been expanded to include units of alcohol and the calculation of alcohol by volume, and a table of inherited medical conditions. Selling over 800,000 copies in previous editions, this is an essential A-Z for students and those working in the medical and allied professions, including nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, social workers, hospital administrators, and medical secretaries. It is also an invaluable home reference guide for the general reader.

Reviews from previous edition `"No home should be without one" certainly applies to this splendid medical dictionary.' Journal of the Institute of Health Education `Excellent layout and jargon-free style should commend it to a wide variety of readers.' Nursing Times `An extraordinary bargain.' New Scientist `Owning a medical dictionary, isn't a bad idea; the Oxford Concise Medical Dictionary is enough for home purposes.' The Guardian
