Apollo hospitals recently released a book of medicine, as well as a book on poisoning and overdose.

‘Apollo’s Textbook of Medicine’ was born out of a need for more practical medical chapters to improve awareness among medical students, according to T.V. Devarajan, Senior Consultant Physician, Apollo Hospitals and Apollo First Med.

28 authors

“The book has 36 chapters written by 28 different authors from across the country and includes chapters on evidence-based medicine, medical ethics, doctors and law, nuclear medicine and drug trials,” he said.

Final year students

The target audience for the books are final-year medical students, postgraduates in medicine, dental, physiotherapy and pharmacy students. “The textbook will be available throughout the country in six months,” he added. Dr. Devarajan also released a book on Poisons and Overdose, as well as a book summarising 175 challenging cases treated in Apollo First Med Hospitals.
