A Clinical Approach to Medicine was, according to the CEO of SingHealth Professor Tan Ser Kiat, written for the purpose of providing practicing clinicians, general practitioners, physicians in training and medical students in the Asia Pacific region with a basic text. New chapters and recent information have been included in this second edition ĘC for instance, a chapter devoted to coverage of SARS.
Prof. Tan also expressed his hopes for greater collaboration between local physicians in the future, allowing the book to become a truly representative publication of local medical practice of which all could be justly proud.
Helmed by a panel of leading clinicians and researchers, the material in key areas such as medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, neurology and oncology has been reorganized in the new edition. The book is unique in that it reflects the experience and perspectives of leading experts predominantly from the Asia-Pacific region.
