The Hands-on Guide for Junior Doctors is a practical book for junior doctors and medical students making the transition from medical school to life on the wards. It contains new material to reflect the changes in PRHO training and the development of foundation programmes.

This book tells you how to prepare for the actual daily rigours of hospital life and is an essential guide for surviving your first year as a junior doctor.

It covers the personal aspects of being a doctor, outlining the realities of ward life including paperwork, self-care and guidance sections on arranging your finances and organising the next job.

It also provides the day-to-day reality of clinical life such as responding to acute emergencies, common ward calls, drug prescribing and carrying out practical procedures.
