They are competent, keep their knowledge and skills up to date, establish and maintain good relationships with patients and colleagues, are honest and trustworthy, and act with integrity and within the law.” - General Medical Council
  • The overwhelming enthusiasm and warm welcome from the medical fraternity, for which I am immensely thankful and greatly indebted, urged me constantly to fetch forth the completely revised third edition of the book: “Medicine At Your Fingertips”.
  • It sprouts out fully impregnated with all recent developments and up to date knowledge in Medicine, enabling the budding and blossoming medical students and practitioners to adapt and adhere to evidence-based, Good Standard Practice in the care and management of the patients.
  • Meticulous efforts have been put forth to make the presentation as simple as possible to make Medicine a child’s play to learn. Thoughtful planning has been made to bring the book as a knowledge bank in Medicine, with all up to date information - condensed, compressed and highlighted - for the students to face every examination and the practitioners to manage their patients competently.
  • With a special emphasis on the methodology of investigations and management of the patients; through “Medicine At Your Fingertips” I have tried to cover the investigations and medical management in a live mode, thus trying to fill up the knowledge lacunae felt in all the other books.
  • If it strives in the making up of the ‘Good Doctors’, myself, as a teacher and an author, would feel it as a priceless gift and great honor for me.
  • I sincerely hope this will be of great use not only for exam preparations, but also in laying a strong foundation on ones aspirations to become a leading specialist and better health care providers of tomorrow.
  • I thank Dr Manu Sudhi and Dr Adarsh Jayasoorya for their timely help and support.

The availability of choices empowers users. However, a recent surge of substandard publications has put the medical students into confusion rather than help them make informed choices about their source of knowledge. Unfortunately, even the beautifully written medical books are directed at the wrong readerships. I have come across books that are an exhaustive treatise on a subject with properly cited sources of information but offered as undergraduate textbooks and poorly constructed books sold as postgraduate textbooks. This title, "Medicine @ Your Fingertips" by Dr. Gireesh Kumar KP, is an exception. It is written clearly with the target readership, i.e., residents pursuing postgraduate training in internal medicine. The title was first published in 2010 and is currently in its 3 rd edition. After a glance at the content, it becomes evident that the book is aimed at being a review book, and it does not aspire to replace the more exhaustive textbooks of medicine. The book is divided into 21 chapters covering almost the entire spectrum of internal medicine. A special chapter on antibiotics in renal failure comes in handy during daily practice for both residents and practitioners. As of August 2020, the book is reasonably up-to-date and has incorporated recent guidelines from various professional bodies. The language has been kept simple and multi-color and one column typesetting makes it easier to read and remember. Though I did come across a few typographical errors, I guess for a book of such volume, it is natural to have few. Nonetheless, typographical errors 'weren't nonsensical, and hence easy readability 'isn't jeopardized. Residents and postgraduate students following other standard textbooks, such as Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine or Oxford Textbook of Medicine, can make an easy transition to this book during the final leg of their certifying exam preparation as the chapters herein are treated similarly as in those classic books. I agree with the author's claim that the book can also be useful as a preparatory manual for those preparing for the NEET-SS exam. The book succinctly covers the updated treatment protocols and can be a 'physician's desk reference. While I do agree that it is an excellent review book for residents in internal medicine, it does miss out on certain relevant topics. The addition of chapters on geriatrics, palliative care, and emerging and reemerging infections would complete the spectrum expected of such a title. A slight improvement in the page quality will be highly appreciated by those who tend to paint every page with highlighters. I would recommend this book to all the academic residents in medicine as a quick review or exam preparatory manual. I strongly feel that this book may find a new readership among the undergraduate students preparing for the National Exit Exam (NEXT) as the proposed draft policies for the said exam call for a more in-depth understanding of clinical subjects, including medicine, when compared to the standards seen in the NEET-PG exam.

Medicine at fingertips by Dr Gireesh kumar sir is a very wonderful and easily understanding book. Most of the topics in Harrison's book is covered in this.

Now, I am doing my post graduation in MD general medicine, it helps me lot for preparing my topic presentations, assignments.

Medicine at fingertips is a very useful book for both undergraduates and postgraduates alike. I have been reading the book from its first edition, it is presented in lucid and easy to remember pattern. It was my guide in passing final year exams. The third edition is updated with Harrison and Up-to-date resources. The book is more than enough for any exam in medicine. The quick review of concepts before each topic helps us to revise our basic sciences. It serves for the purpose of NEET PG as well, since all protocols are based on Harrison. I will recommend the book to anyone who needs a comprehensive understanding in internal medicine in short span of time.
