This unique text presents challenging questions covering common and important ophthalmology, dermatology and ENT topics. The comprehensive answers make it an all-in-one study and revision tool for busy students. These specialties are commonly misunderstood by medical students and clinical trainees, and are known to be areas in which valuable marks are frequently lost in written and clinical examinations.


EMQs in Ophthalmology, Dermatology and ENT is ideal for medical students wanting to consolidate their knowledge. It is also highly recommended for general practitioners, core medical and core surgical trainees, including candidates for the MRCGP, MRCP and MRCS examinations. Junior ophthalmology, dermatology and ENT trainees, including candidates for the Duke-Elder Exam in Ophthalmology, will find the self-testing EMQ format crucial in exam preparations.


From the Foreword by Professor Janice:

The authors have done a great job of covering the very wide syllabuses for these subjects while at the same time making reading the book such a pleasurable learning experience. Junior doctors and medical students can use this book to give them a comprehensive, yet adequately detailed, insight into these specialties.
