The Oxford Textbook of Medicine is the foremost international textbook of medicine. Unrivaled in its coverage of the scientific aspects and clinical practice of internal medicine and its subspecialties, it is a fixture in the offices and wards of physicians around the world. More comprehensive, more authoritative, and more international than any other textbook, it focuses on offering practical guidance on clinical management and the prevention of disease.
Three introductory chapters outline a philosophy which has always characterized the Oxford Textbook of Medicine. It is humane, thought-provoking, and aims to instill in readers an understanding of the role of medicine in society, and the contribution it can make to the health of populations.
As always, there is detailed coverage of all areas of internal medicine. The integration of basic science and clinical practice is unparalleled and throughout the book the implications of research for medical practice are explained. The core clinical medicine sections offer in-depth coverage of the traditional specialty areas. The Oxford Textbook of Medicine has unsurpassed details on infectious diseases: the most comprehensive coverage to be found in any textbook of medicine. Other sections of note include: pain; bioterrorism; forensic medicine; medical disorders in pregnancy; travel and expedition medicine; nutrition; the use of stem cells; regenerative medicine, and psychiatry and drug-related problems in general medical practice.
In response to detailed research, there have been substantial changes to ensure that the Oxford Textbook of Medicine continues to meet the needs of its readers. New chapter summaries give accessible overviews of the content. All 2,500 illustrations and photographs are now in full color, and a new design ensures that the textbook is easy to read and to navigate. The evidence-base and references have been entirely overhauled.
And now, for the first time, the Oxford Textbook of Medicine is available in an online edition. Containing the full text and all the figures and illustrations, the online version has a clear and easy-to-use interface with excellent navigation and search and browse options. In addition, the online edition facilitates links to sources of related and further reading via PubMed, ISI, and CrossRef. All the figures are downloadable into Powerpoint; an excellent tool when preparing presentations and lectures.
Purchasers of the print edition of the Oxford Textbook of Medicine, fifth edition, will also be able to purchase access to the online edition for a reduced rate by following the instructions given in the book.

Review from previous edition: "Over the past 3 weeks, it has had pride of place on my office table, usually with one or other volume open at a key page. 'Cor', is the typical response of colleagues entering the room, 'Got a new textbook I see'. At L275 and with metallic sheen on the cover as
standard, this is the intellectual equivalent of a Jaguar coupe and inspires similar levels of envy."
--Family Practice, August 2003
"It is an invaluable source of information, well written by experts in their respective fields. It will be the first reference source I choose when questions arise as I continue to practice medicine."
--Doody's Journal, October 2003
"Can we have a broader view of ourselves again as gatekeepers of the health of populations? This is an issue that is intelligently addressed. The coverage of the global burden of disease, preventive medical strategies, health policy, and costing are new and welcome additions. I found these
sections to be especially thought-provoking and believe that they are valuable reading for all budding medical graduates, teachers, and researchers."
--The Lancet, June 2003
"The Oxford Textbook of Medicine has been regarded a sound reference book for the past twenty years, and this new, even more comprehensive, three volume edition just has to be one of the most authoritative textbooks available."
--Association of Lawyers for Children
"...the text does not lose sight of the clinical implications of the science being presented, in keeping with the underlying philosophy of the book that the material must be of practical value to the physician."
--From the foreword by Professor Sir Aaron Klug
