Do not buy lots of books.

You won’t use them.

No really, don’t do it.


There are only a handful of books that you need to buy (in my opinion):

  • A decent anatomy and physiology book e.g. Martini, Marieb etc.

  • 12-lead ECG: The art of interpretation, Garcia, ISBN 0763712841

  • Clinical pathology, Carton, ISBN 0198569467

  • Clinical skills, T.Roper, ISBN 0199574928

  • Learning radiology: recognizing the basics, Herring, ISBN 0323328075


What about embryology, histology, pharmacology, clinical medicine…I hear you cry.

Borrow them from the library.

Or use online podcasts/youtube videos. Many are listed on this website.


As a side note: here’s a page of some non clinical books which will expand your mind.
