Publication Date: 03 May 2022

Sir Robert Hutchison first published his textbook on Clinical Methods in 1897 and this latest edition maintains its reputation as the go-to guide to learn the core skills every clinician needs in their everyday practice.

Medical students and doctors in training will find essential guidance to taking a full history, examining a patient and interpreting the findings. They will learn the art of understanding, contextualising, communicating and explaining, with the doctor-patient relationship firmly at the centre of their practice. These skills remain essential for every doctor, in addition to modern investigative methods.

The book covers basic principles, different patient groups and all the main body systems. Each chapter includes relevant clinical methods and offers guidance for appropriate investigations. New methods and investigations are incorporated into established patterns of clinical practice to offer a fully integrated approach.

This award-winning textbook remains as relevant today as ever and will be treasured by doctors at all levels of training and practice as an outstanding source of learning and reference.
