The major concern is that book knowledge gleaned at medical school does not always translate to effective and safe practical knowhow. This phenomenon has been well documented and is known as Black Wednesday, the first Wednesday in August when newly qualified doctors begin their jobs.Based on the authors many years of expertise as an educator around the world, this book helps final-year students make the difficult transition to first-year doctors. Drawing on the latest evidence-based information, it focuses on aspects important to clinical practice in the area of gastroenterology such as differentials, investigations and management with full references provided throughout. Also detailed are examination skills- although not the routine form of how to examine but what to be thinking when asked to examine. What conditions should be prevalent in a doctors mind? How can these conclusions be reached before even seeing the patient? Practical knowledge like this defines an effective clinician.Clear, concise and rigorous in its approach, Gastroenterology is an indispensable companion to any new doctor.
