    The most widely read textbook in the history of medicine ' made 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 as a textbook and as a clinical reference. It remains the most universally respected textbook in all of medical publishing and the pinnacle of current medical knowledge.

The acclaimed Harrison's DVD has been updated to include 53 chapters not found in the text; 14 all-new how-to videos commissioned specifically for Harrison's; PowerPoint presentations on essential topics in medical education; and hundreds of bonus illustrations.

    Presented in two volumes
    NEW text design greatly enhances readability
    NEW chapters on cutting-edge topics in clinical medicine
    Expanded focus on global considerations of health and disease
