Community Medicine with Recent Advances

by AH Suryakantha

This book deals with community medicine. This is the end result of teaching community medicine to undergraduate and postgraduate students for more than three decades. Though the book is written primarily for undergraduates, it would also be useful for postgraduate students of community medicine. Considering an ever-increasing demand for a comprehensive book on community medicine, an attempt has been made to make the book, student-friendly, teacher-friendly, examiner-friendly and doctor-friendly. It is written in an understandable way, covering the entire syllabus prescribed by Medical Council of India (MCI), including the recent advances. The matter is presented in such a way as to avoid confusion and to make the reading of the book a pleasurable experience. Topics like biostatistics would encourage the students to take up the research activities. The lucid language of the book would facilitate quick revision. The book is doctor-friendly because it would help the general practitioners and the rural medical officers in providing not only curative services, but also preventive and promotive services to the community at large, motivating them to a healthier, and happier life.
