This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
English in Medicine is a course for doctors, medical students and other medical professionals who need to communicate with patients and medical colleagues. The course is at an intermediate level and does not require specialist knowledge on the part of the teacher. Each of the seven units focuses on one area of doctor-patient communication, from history taking and examination to diagnosis and treatment. The course develops all four skills through a wide variety of activities. The third edition is now in full colour and has been updated to take account of developments in medicine and the impact of new information technology.
