A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This remains the gold standard of useable texts for teaching pharmacology to medical students. In my opinion, this is the best edition.... continue to use this book as a required resource for all courses that I teach to medical and allied health professions students....I also use this as the major resource for an elective offering in Advanced Pharmacology for third and fourth year medical students. This book continues to be the standard that all other pharmacology books attempt to emulate."--Doody's Review Service

Now in its 25th year of publication, Basic and Clinical Pharmacology is the most up-to-date and complete pharmacology textbook available. Through nine previous editions it has set the standard for concise and easy-to-read, yet comprehensive coverage of pharmacology. The text's integration of basic with clinical science makes it well suited for an integrated organ-system-based curricula as well as the more traditional curricula.

Features

  • Detailed review of the mechanism of action and toxicities of traditional and newer drugs
  • Critical discussions of treatment strategies and recommended drugs for all major diseases
