‘Cardiology at its Core’ reference text now published.

‘Cardiology at its Core’ takes a first principles approach in its exploration of areas pertinent to cardiovascular medicine. It is authored by Dr Peysh Patel (consultant cardiologist at QEH) and published by Wiley-Blackwell. It seeks to translate principles into practice by combining the best points of a handbook and textbook. It is an ideal learning resource for those keen to pursue specialty training or who have recently embarked. It is also broadly aligned with European guidelines, providing a contemporary revision aid for those undertaking core specialist exams.
