Key Features: Aimed at medical students, genetic counsellors and clinical geneticists, this book provides the reader with a concise summary of post-genomic human genetics and guidance as to how our current understanding can be utilized in clinical practice.
A case-based approach: this integrated book links genetics and clinical practice throughout using realistic case scenarios. Readers can take a problem-based approach to learning by working through each of the cases, or a more conventional approach by tackling each of the chapters in the order dictated by their course.
Based around the requirements of the NHS genetics education centre and the ASHG: which state that ‘ every physician who practices in the 21st century must have an in-depth knowledge of the principles of human genetics and their application to a wide variety of clinical problems’ .
Student-friendly design and layout: Each chapter includes self-assessment questions, separate boxes containing diagnostic methods and approaches, common diseases and over 300 clinical photograph and figures, all designed to aid student understanding.
Printed in full-color throughout.
Good textbook of Medical Genetics, May 6, 2007
This is very good textbook in the field of medical genetics. It concentrates on clinical aspects of the specialty covering different areas in medical genetics. Each chapter starts with number of cases, which is very good idea, then covering the different aspects of diagnosis, molecular & cytogenetic genetics aspects of these cases, then goes further to cover the management & genetic counseling. I really enjoy reading it
