Medical students at University could be youngest authors of a medical textbook

Many university students will share their revision notes, but two medical students at the University have gone a step further by publishing an academic-standard textbook to help fellow trainee doctors.

Rheumatology: A clinical handbook is written by Ahmad Al-Sukaini and Mohsin Azam, both fourth year medical students at the University and believed to be the youngest authors to write a medical textbook. The senior author of the book is Dr Ash Samanta, a Consultant Rheumatologist from University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, based at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

The textbook provides a clear and concise understanding of rheumatology, a multidisciplinary branch of medicine that deals with the investigation, diagnosis and management of patients with arthritis and other conditions involving the muscles and bones.

The textbook is primarily aimed at medical students and newly qualified doctors, covers the core elements of rheumatology using the most up-to-date literature. Whilst taking an exam orientated approach, the book provides a range of student friendly features such as pictures, diagrams, practice questions and much more.

Rheumatology: A clinical handbook can be purchased from the University bookshop.
