A solid grounding in and understanding of haematology is crucial for any doctor. The pathophysiology is fascinating, and the pharmacology is rapidly advancing, improving prognosis across many haematological conditions. Getting to grips with its fundamentals will stand any medical student in good stead during undergraduate studies and on into clinical practice.

This book utilises single best answer-style questions in the popular MasterPass series of revision aids, covering the haematology presentations and conditions listed in the Medical Licensing Assessment content map, making it ideal for MLA preparation and a useful case-based learning resource for any medical student working towards qualifying examinations.

Key Features:

• Clinical based questions are followed by answers explaining the key physiological principles, allowing the reader to both develop their knowledge throughout their studies and as a useful aide memoire during exam preparation

• Concluding section of single best answer questions for readers to further test the knowledge gained

• Popular case-based format reflects the ‘real life’ situations that medical students will encounter in future clinical practice
