Obstetrics and Gynecology is one of the four core student clerkships in the U.S., meaning that every student must take a clinical, in-hospital course requiring a small manual; an Ob/Gyn is one of the largest professional specialties, with 41,000 practicing physicians in the U.S. Thus,Obstetrics and Gynecology is always one of the top-selling titles in any medical series. This handbook will be a book that 3rd and 4th year medical students and residents carry in their pockets to answer all the questions and situtations that arise on wards. Ob/Gyn physicians will also be a coreaudience.

Editorial Reviews

"Overall, this U.S. edition of the Oxford Handbook serves its purpose as a quick-reference, pocket overview of issues encountered in obstetrics and gynecology. This is a useful tool for all levels of medical professionals involved in patient care. It is well written, evidence based, and thorough."--Doody's "This book is good for those postgraduates who are starting their first job in obstetrics or gynaecology as it takes you through 'warning' signs and symptoms thus making you more aware of situations where you may need to seek senior help...Overall, I would recommend buying this textbook to anyone working in O&G, both nurses and doctors alike."--durrants
