Psychiatry by Ten Teachers follows the highly-praised and successful ‘Ten Teachers’ tradition of providing the key information in a chosen specialty as required by the medical undergraduate, junior doctor and trainee GP, written by ten respected experts in the field. With medical students closely involved in the text’s development from the outset the text focuses on what the medical student and junior really need to know, with a clear rationale for the inclusion of every topic discussed at a level appropriate for the inexperienced, and will be of value to their future career whatever field they ultimately decide to specialize in.

Completely up to date, this revised second edition encourages students and recently qualified doctors to get the most out of their psychiatry and community attachments, without overwhelming them with unnecessary detail. In line with the core curriculum recommended by the Royal College of Psychiatry, useful tips and advice ensure this is much more than a standard introduction to the subject, encouraging additional reading, supporting critical thinking and bringing exam success.
