Mims' Medical Microbiology E-Book, 4th Edition
MIMS' MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY offers thorough and up-to-date coverage of microbiology and basic immunology, through a clinically relevant, systems-based approach. The textbook emphasises the microbiology of the agents causing disease, and the diseases affecting individual organ systems. Through thorough cross referencing, the reader can easily find what they need, whether seeking information from a systems or a microbe perspective. Nearly 500 illustrations support the text, and summary introductory and summary key facts boxes strengthen the clarity and usefulness of the text.
- Systems-based approach to microbiology reflects integrated and case-based teaching
- Stresses the role of the immune system in infectious disease, in line with the move towards integrated, systems-based teaching (where for example diseases like meningitis are taught as part of a Nervous system module)
- Chapter Introduction boxes (now revised to be in bullet points), Summary Headings throughout each chapter and Key Facts boxes at the end of each chapter allow easy access to key concepts, and valuable review tools
- Extensively cross-referenced Pathogen Review section means the reader can navigate the text either through a systems-based or a pathogen-based path, as they choose
