This is a comprehensive and practical textbook equally adaptable as a manual for classroom work or as a source of information for the medically inexperienced person who undertakes the specialized tasks of a doctor's office. The author's practical background in the field is revealed in every chapter. The subjects covered include personality, medical ethics, patients and their records, accounts, medicolegal matters, preparation of medical manuscripts, professional office procedures and medical terminology. The physician who directs the attention of his new assistant to this authoritative handbook will save himself much time and perhaps much trouble.
