This is a concise revision guide to the core basic sciences for all surgical trainees preparing for Part A of the Intercollegiate MRCS examination. Covering anatomy, physiology and pathology it has been written in a style to facilitate easy learning of the essential facts, with indications of both their clinical relevance and importance. This book concentrates on those topics which tend to be recurring examination themes for initial surgical training. It will be an invaluable resource for the basic surgical trainee as well as proving useful for those in higher surgical training and for the surgically-inclined, well-motivated student.
- The book covers in one volume all the essentials of the basic sciences – anatomy, physiology and pathology – to aid the candidate for the MRCS examination.
- In covering the applied basic science the books explains the application and clinical relevance of the three sciences.
- The text is written in an appropriate ‘bullet-point’ style to allow easy reading rapid exam preparation.
- The contents concentrate on the recurring common themes of the examination, thus helping direct appropriate learning and focussing on the specific important areas of knowledge.
- The book is illustrated with clear line drawings which are clearly annotated to aid learning.
- Now available on StudentConsult with a downloadable ebook version included.
- 250 new online single-best answer questions in the format of the MRCS Part A examination will give the reader valuable experience in assessing their knowledge. Each answer will refer back to text for further reading as required.
- New and updated OSCE ‘Clinical scenarios’ will be included at the end of every chapter.

This book does not attempt to rival major surgical textbooks, but draws together a collection of basic information in a convenient format. It provides a transition in knowledge between the basic sciences and clinical practice. Emphasis is placed on the general principles of surgery rather than on management of specific conditions and thus this title complements the standard clinical surgical textbooks.
- Applies basic science to practical clinical settings
- Clear succinct chapters
- Provides a core of knowledge with which surgeons should be familiar
- Recommended by the RCS
- Written by the RCS STEP course tutors
- Ensures a transition of knowledge between the basic sciences and clinical practice
- Helps MRCS candidates revise for exams
- Aids decision-making for inexperienced surgeons
- New chapter on Tissue and Bone response to trauma and surgery
- New chapter on Clinical Governance
- New editor joins the book, Mr. William Ribbans

* …this book is an excellent text and I would recommend it to any surgical trainee.” President of GKT Surgical Society, The Journal of Surgery, October 2003
* textbook outshines others in its class…highly recommend to any trainee or student wishing to understand the principles and practice of surgery and furthermore it is certainly is a prerequisite for anyone determined to pursue a career in surgery.” Surgery Student, The Journal of Surgery, November 2003
* must have for anyone wanting a career in surgery.”MAD Magazine – Barts and The London Students’ Association, November 2003
* a textbook worth taking a closer look at.
* Unlike other surgical texts, this one manages not only to cover basic sciences and principles, but also topics such as surgical access and instrumentation, which is essential for the budding surgeon.
* I highly recommend this book, to not only the trainee surgeons it is intended for but any medical student wishing to understand the principles and practice of surgery before facing their surgical rotations and clinical exams.” Nikita Kanani, GKT Gazette, December 2003
Over recent years the MRCS viva examination has increasingly made use of radiological imaging to facilitate the discussion of anatomy relevant to surgical practice. It is rare for junior doctors to receive adequate exposure to radiology in their day-to-day surgical practice, which makes preparation for this part of the examination difficult. For many, examinations are stressful. The last thing a candidate needs is to be faced with unfamiliar radiological images. This review of surgically relevant radiological imaging aims to prevent initial uncertainties and will allow candidates to discuss relevant anatomy and score valuable points. An invaluable addition to any revision plan, this title also: • highlights typical anatomy viva questions • familiarizes candidates with a range of images of differing modalities (plain film, fluoroscopy, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging) • introduces different planes of imaging, enabling candidates to deal with unusual coronal or sagittal views with confidence • gives concise but detailed notes for quick consultation
