Contrary to conventional clinical skill textbooks written in a routine, system based approach, "Clinical Examination: A Problem Based Approach" breaks that mould by presenting clinical cases in a problem solving manner. The book is composed of in-depth dissections of case scenarios and their appropriate investigations. Written by experts from Australia, New Zealand, US and the UK, this book brings an international perspective to a wide variety of specialties including, gastroenterology, neurology, rheumatology, respiratory and the cardiovascular system. Another unique feature of the book is the chapters on examining the older patient, the joints and the vascular system. This publication is a must-have for all medical undergraduates and postgraduates.The author is a distinguished clinician and educator. He is the recipient of the Order of Australia (AM) 2009 for "service to medicine and to medical education through the development of undergraduate and professional development programs".
