Basic Sciences for Obstetrics and Gynaecology has become the standard revision aid for students preparing for examinations in obstetrics and gynaecology, particularly those candidates for the MRCOG Part I. A wealth of information is presented in a concise, didactic format, focusing on those facts that are generally considered to be neither contentious nor speculative. The fifth edition has been substantially updated to reflect the current understanding of the basic sciences underpinning the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology. This book will also be of value to professionals wishing to refresh their basic scientific knowledge. Cell Biology, Embryology and the Placenta Anatomy General Physiology and biochemistry Endocrinology Pathology Microbiology Pharmacology Tim Chard is Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London. Richard Lilford is Professor of Health Services Research at the University of Birmingham
