Medical exams can be a daunting experience. This textbook aims to help prepare students by providing a comprehensive overview of the gastrointestinal system, presented in a clear and concise manner. It takes readers through a logical thought process starting with basic anatomy and physiology and culminating with clinical disorders. This provides a strong foundation which allows students to understand the basic sciences, and then apply this to a clinical scenario.
As well as aiding revision, hopefully this book will also prove a useful resource when making the transition from student to house officer. It provides a detailed overview of the common gastrointestinal problems that you will certainly face on the wards.
I hope that you enjoy reading this book and find it a useful resource.
Despite their best intentions and notice of timetables, all students find that exams come too soon. Crash Course is written by people who’ve been there for people who are getting there! The series is largely written by students in their final year or just after qualifying as doctors who have recently passed their exams and who know what you need to know to pass and excel in your exam. This book on the Gastrointestinal System tells you that, but I hope is comprehensive enough to give you even more – a good grounding in clinical gastroenterology and hepatology. It is an exciting subject area and Crash Course is designed to bring it alive with information. The illustrations in this book pack in a thousand more words than we could in the text and I hope you will enjoy learning from them.
