Essentials for Practice of Medicine in the Frontline: From Tropical Africa; Pleasantly Different

Inyang Ukot

Essentials for Practice of Medicine in the Frontline: From Tropical Africa; Pleasantly Different, Volume 2 of this two-volume unusual textbook of medicine is the product of a long-time yearning that I have had for authoring a multi-specialty textbook that goes straight to the point in addressing the needs of medical students who will eventually practice in a setting that I call "the frontline." In addition to medical students, I had busy practicing general practitioners in mind as they attend to a wide range of patients with medical challenges that may span multiple specialties. The third category of target-users of this book is specialists who are consulted by occasional patients whose medical issues are not in their specialty.

You are welcome to this medium-sized book with Sections written by multiple specialists. It covers Pediatrics, Family medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Internal medicine, and an 11-chapter General section, giving this Volume 51 Chapters.

At the tail end of the book is a Section containing Multiple-choice Questions and Answers covering the contents of Sections 6 to 9. The Answers for Pediatrics MCQs have explanatory notes. Section 10 has embedded Multiple-choice Questions but their Answers and Comments appear immediately after the Section. The last Chapter in Section 10 has interesting Picture tests.
