Medicine: Books


Books for medicine can be found in both the Main Library and the JF Allen Library. We've tried to split core reading texts between both sites but most other books will be at the Main Library.

If you find that we need more copies of books please email Vicki Cormie or morebooks and we'll endeavour to get more copies as soon as possible.
