Orthopaedic Basic and Clinical Science for the Postgraduate Examination: Viva Practice and Diagrams is written in a very readable and easy-to-navigate format. At 400 pages long, it uses clinical case scenarios to explain various essential aspects of trauma and orthopaedics curriculum, with a focus on basic sciences.

This book takes a problem-based approach to help with the preparation of exams through the use of mock vivas, as well as encouraging candidates to practise drawing out and labelling the diagrams frequently asked by examiners. The layout is based on asking questions to encourage readers to use the analytical skills which they have gained from clinical experience, with clear and concise explanations to cover the entre scope of the syllabus, including relevant landmark references. Simple, relevant diagrams and radiographs complement the text and enhance the learning experience.

The contents include four chapters: Adult orthopaedics, Trauma, Paediatric orthopaedics and Hand surgery, as well as basic sciences.

This book will give the reader a sprint in the path of lifelong learning and is recommended as part of every orthopaedic surgeon’s continued professional development portfolio.
