The most widely read textbook in the history of medicine -- made even more essential to practice and education by an unmatched array of multi-media content.
Through six decades, no resource has matched the encyclopedic scope, esteemed scholarship, and scientific rigor of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine. Both an educational tool and a clinical reference, it remains the most universally respected textbook in all of medical publishing and the pinnacle of current medical knowledge.
The eighteenth edition of Harrison's features expanded and more in-depth coverage of key issues in clinical medicine, pathophysiology, and medical education. The acclaimed Harrison's DVD has been updated to include 53 chapters not found in the book, all-new procedural videos commissioned especially for Harrison's, a masterpiece video from internationally renowned neurologist Martin Samuels on the neurological exam, and hundreds of bonus illustrations, and important procedural videos.
