Clin Exp Dermatol. 2020 Sep 28. doi: 10.1111/ced.14465. Online ahead of print.


I am a recently graduated medical student, soon to begin Foundation Year 1, with an interest in dermatology. The book I am reviewing is Dermatology at a Glance by Mahbub M. U. Chowdhury, Ruwani P. Katugampola and Andrew Y. Finlay, which is immediately recognizable by its cover as a dermatology-related book. The authors' credentials are exceptional: both Dr Chowdhury and Dr Katugampola are involved in medical education and training at Cardiff University, with published articles and book chapters; Dr Chowdhury was the Academic Vice President of the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) and Chair of the BAD Education Subcommittee; and Professor Finlay was Head of the Academic Dermatology department at Cardiff University and was President of the BAD.
