Oxford University Press is proud to publish the Oxford Case Histories, a series of peer-reviewed cases gathered from the Oxford Hospitals.
Sample pilot exit exams have shown a strong bias towards case-based questions. Although 'student-centred learning' is encouraged, until now there are few books available to direct trainees preparing for exit examinations or wishing to undertake case-based learning as part of private study.
While there is no substitute for standard texts in medical education, it is through the study of individual patients that clinicians gain the necessary skills for confident and competent diagnosis and management of medical problems. In recognition of this, there has been a recent move towards case-based learning in medicine at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Core curricula have been developed for all the medical specialties together with a generic curriculum that applies to all trainees intending to become consultant physicians. Mandatory knowledge and performance-based assessments, including exit exams, are being developed in order to ensure that trainees meet the required standard prior to being awarded a certificate of completion of training (CCT).
The new Oxford Case Histories series covers a wide range of specialties and the books are aimed at the post-graduate market (MRCP and above).
