A complete introductory textbook on how to include basic genetic principles into the practice of clinical medicine

Schaefer and Thompson’s Medical Genetics (ePub/PDF) is the first textbook to emphasize the everyday application of genetic assessment and its diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive consequences in clinical practice. It is aimed to be a text that you can use throughout medical school and refer back to when questions come up during residency and, eventually, practice. Medical Genetics: An Integrated Approach is penned as a narrative where each chapter builds upon the base laid by prior ones.

You will find detailed, expert coverage of such main topics as:

  • Mutations
  • Cytogenetics
  • Genetic therapies
  • Mendelian inheritance
  • Disorders of organelles
  • Genetic testing and screening
  • The structure and function of genes

  2. Case Study Application – Includes case study examples to illustrate how basic principles apply to real-world patent care
  3. Medical Genetics – Includes all the pertinent information necessary to create a strong knowledge base for being successful on every stage of the USMLE
