Charting directly from the FRCPath and RCP infection curricula, students are able to examine areas of curriculum to get knowledge and optimize decision-making skills, under pressure.
‘This is an excellent ebook covering a wide variety of infectious diseases. The first four chapters are very useful in understanding pathogen biology and the part of the microbiology laboratory in infectious diseases. These will be an outstanding quick read for trainees going into infectious disease specialization training. Though many of the questions are not written in the style of US boards, much of the information has some significance to the ABIM infectious disease exam.’ — Rajendra Karnatak, Doody’s Book Review Service
‘An extremely helpful resource for trainees in any speciality wanting to broaden their knowledge about infection related issues or for trainees in microbiology and infectious diseases getting ready for examinations. The content of this ebook spans the recently revised infection training curriculum; from the biology of microorganisms and laboratory practices, to infection control, to clinical syndromes and the treatment of infections, outbreak management and approaches to the returning traveller. The ‘best of five’ approach approved by the authors is extremely effective; not only reflecting the current examination format, but it also encouraging active learning by making the reader think about the topic area prior to consulting the accurate and clear answers provided by the authors. A must-have for anyone undertaking training in infectious diseases and microbiology or for anyone with an interest in infectious diseases wishing to update their knowledge.’ — Sanjay Patel, University Hospital Southampton
