Dewhurst's Textbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, 8th Edition, remains to be one of the best clinical companions for trainees in obstetrics and gynecology. In an even easier-to-use format, there is a clear division between obstetrics and gynecology content. Now with the inclusion of feature boxes throughout, trainees can quickly and easily pick out key points and concept summaries. Within each section, material is subdivided into logical subsections reflecting a natural, progressive pathway where possible allowing for trainees to better navigate the text.
