A Dummies Guide to Medicine

A simple introductory 'Dummies Guide' to each period, concept and personality is planned for the site. They will be written with a total beginner in mind but will cover the most important elements of each area in a way that would hopefully make them suitable for last minute panicked revision!

Below is the schedule for the Dummies Guides with links to the ones that are already live. I am deliberately posting these onto the Blog in order to allow and invite comments and questions from students. Your posts there are moderated so might not appear immediately.

Note: Publication dates removed due to problems I've had with the blog. They'll come as fast as I can manage to write them. My students be warned, you will be writing some of these yourselves...
