The reincarnation of The Hands-On Guide For House Officers. Don’t let the title of this book fool you into thinking that it’s of no use to students, it’s a got lots of useful information for OSCE skills stations. Having said this, when you do make it to qualification (and yes, you will make it; however unlikely it may seem now) this book is full of useful little practical tips that you’ll need on a daily basis.
The chapters cover all the stuff that the medical school should have but never quite found the time, such as what to do to prepare for a ward round, how to take and then interpret blood gasses and even how to get blood stains out of your clothes - no joke! This book is one of the most useful things to have stashed in your pocket for your shadowing period and F1 year so why not get it now and have some use of it while you’re a student?
