Diagnostic strategy and clinical reasoning are essential components of becoming an effective clinician, yet they are not always taught as part of the formal curriculum at medical school and currently there are few resources available that introduce medical students and junior doctors to these areas. This brand new textbook is written specifically to address this need. Outlining the process by which a clinician formulates and refines an initial diagnosis and crafts an appropriate management plan, the medical student or junior doctor will develop a critical self-awareness of the strategies they employ in assessing patients and how to improve and enhance their skills.
