Reading List

 

BaxterBoyd is often asked to recommend a book or other reading material that covers the syllabus of Pharmaceutical Medicine and that can help candidates prepare to sit the Diploma in Pharmaceutical Medicine exam. In our experience the modern practice of Pharmaceutical Medicine is constantly being updated and no single reading source fully reflects this. However, as well as updating and refreshing our training programme each year we have compiled a reading list that contains the most important and relevant resources to assist individuals with their training in Pharmaceutical Medicine and to help candidates prepare for the Diploma exam.
