Neil Herring and Robert WIlkins' textbook entitled “Basic Sciences for Core Medical Training” published by OUP, won a “Highly commended” prize in the Basic and Clinical Sciences category of the BMA Medical Book Awards 2016 at their Annual awards ceremony on 7th September. The awards take place annually to recognise outstanding contributions to medical literature.

The textbook is aimed at clinicians studying for the MRCP but its emphasis on how basic science specifically relates to the medical specialities makes it just as relevant for medical students too. It is available to purchase from the OUP.

 Providing a clear explanation of the relevant medical science behind the individual medical specialties, Basic Science for Core Medical Training and the MRCP, is an indispensable part of a candidate's MRCP preparation. Directly linked to the Royal College exam, the book follows the same systems-based approach as the syllabus for accurate and effective revision.
