Gynaecology by Ten Teachers 20th Edition
Gynaecology by Ten Teachers 20th Edition was first published in 1919 as ‘Diseases of Women’ and is one of the
oldest, most respected and accessible texts on the subject. Gynaecology by Ten Teachers has informed
generations of gynaecologists, and now has a wide international audience.
The Gynaecology by Ten Teachers 20th Edition has been almost entirely rewritten to reflect both changing undergraduate medical curricula and changing diagnostic and management protocols in gynaecology. The ‘Ten Teachers’ are all internationally renowned experts in their fields and all actively involved in the delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the UK.
Gynaecology by Ten Teachers 20th Edition content
This volume has been edited carefully to ensure consistency of structure, style and level of detail, in common with those of its sister text Obstetrics by Ten Teachers. The Gynaecology by Ten Teachers 20th Edition ebooks can therefore be used together or independently as required. New self assessment sections are presented consistently throughout, with detailed clinical scenarios for each subject in a structure similar to those used in most medical schools.
The global status of women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights is disturbing. Millions of women have no access to contraception, undergo female genital mutilation and receive no gynaecological care. It is fitting, therefore, that the 20th edition, published almost 100 years after the first, maintains a global aspect throughout.
The aim of the text now, as it was a century ago, is to prepare students for their undergraduate examinations, and to continue to be useful afterwards in postgraduate studies and clinical practice. It is a text that the editors used as students, which inspired us to practice and teach in the specialty, and which we still enjoy reading because it is concise yet comprehensive. We hope that in addition to supporting medical students throughout their studies, general practitioners, trainees and allied health care professionals will find it useful in their work.
It has been a privilege and an honour to be the editors of this Gynaecology by Ten Teachers 20th Edition textbook as it approaches this importantmilestone; we echo a century of previous editors in hoping that this book will enthuse a new generation of doctors to become gynaecologists and work to improve the health and the safety of women through all reproductive ages.
