Do You Even Need to Buy Textbooks for Medical School?

Welcome to this article where I’ll be discussing the topic of medical textbooks. Many people ask me what textbooks they should buy before starting medical school, as there are some famous ones that are often recommended. In this article, I will address whether you actually need to buy textbooks and if so, which ones are worth considering. I will also provide some unconventional recommendations. Let’s dive in!

Do you need to buy textbooks?

In my opinion, no. Academic textbooks are notoriously expensive and in this digital age, there are plenty of other ways to access information. University libraries and the internet offer a wealth of resources, including free medical education material on platforms like YouTube. Most universities have high-demand textbooks available for borrowing, or you can access e-books for free through your library. You can also find textbooks at low prices from older students or online marketplaces like eBay and Amazon. So, there is no need to buy brand new textbooks.

Recommended textbooks

Core medical textbooks

For your core internal medicine, biochemistry, and essential biology and chemistry, Kumar and Clark’s Clinical Medicine and Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine are highly recommended. For pharmacology, Rang and Dale’s Pharmacology is a trustworthy choice. Another book to consider is Molecular Biology of the Cell, especially for bio med students.

Anatomy textbooks

When it comes to anatomy, Grey’s Anatomy for Students is a classic choice. Other recommended books include McMinn’s and Abraham’s Anatomy Atlas, Human Sectional Anatomy, and Anatomy 360. For surface anatomy, Pocket Guide to Surface Anatomy by Professor Richard Tunstall is an excellent resource.

Clinical skills and examinations

For practical and professional clinical skills, Practical and Professional Clinical Skills by John Morrissey and Professor Vinod Patel, and McLeod’s Clinical Examination are highly recommended. These books cover the essentials for clinical examinations.

Specialty books

For specialized areas of medicine, there are several books worth considering. For ECG interpretation, The ECG Made Easy is a standard textbook. Neurology and neuroanatomy can be challenging, but books like Neurology and Neurosurgery by Dr. Don Collins and Crossman’s Neuroanatomy offer comprehensive explanations. Learning Radiology by William Herring is a great resource for interpreting radiological images.

Other useful books

For additional practice and knowledge, books like 100 Cases in… and Crash Course series offer practical quizzes and specialty-focused information. Made Ridiculously Simple series simplifies complex topics, with titles like Clinical Pharmacology and Neuroanatomy Made Ridiculously Simple. For essay-style questions, The Complete SAQ Study Guide is a helpful reference book.

Final thoughts

While buying textbooks is not necessary, having access to certain books can be beneficial. If you can find them at a low price or receive them as gifts, it’s worth considering. However, always remember that there are many other resources available, and expensive textbooks are not essential for success in medical school.
