Dr. Roy’s books and lectures
Though The Great Courses, I’ve written and produced three audio- or video-lecture series that can give anyone a true medical school experience. “Medical School for Everyone: Grand Rounds Cases” includes 24 medical “mysteries” for laymen to try to figure out. I’ll give you the clues, and along the way teach about medical problems and how doctors think. You’ll also learn how to be a better, healthier patient. My second course, “Medical School for Everyone: Emergency Medicine” takes you into the Emergency Department to work alongside physicians and paramedics. You’ll learn about how to address medical and trauma emergencies– what to do for yourself or a loved one– and how emergency physicians juggle the hectic demands of their jobs. My Emergency Medicine course is especially fast-paced, but I think you’ll have fun with it and won’t have any trouble keeping up.
My newest course series is “Medical School for Everyone: Pediatrics Grand Rounds.” Like my other courses, it’s meant for everyone to enjoy, and will immerse you in the world of medical practice– this time from a pediatric viewpoint. You’ll meet patients from preemies to college students, and deal with mysteries and illnesses from minor to catastrophic. I hope this course will be a great resource for parents, grandparents, and anyone interested in the health of children.
I’ve also written two books for parents. A Guide to Getting the Best Healthcare for Your Child reveals the secrets of pediatrics that could help every parent and child. The best ways to choose and use all aspects of pediatric care are covered: traditional medicine, alternative medicine, hospitals, emergency rooms, telephone calls, insurance, sources of medical information and more. This is a unique book that covers the inside information about the practice of pediatrics that every parent needs to know.
My second book, Solving Health and Behavioral Problems from Birth Through Preschool: A Parent’s Guide, continues the themes of practical insider information from the world of pediatrics, focusing on the everyday health and behavioral challenges that parents face. This book will help parents understand the most common childhood maladies and misbehaviors and know what the best options are for action. The topics addressed range from abdominal pain, ear infections and vomiting to issues with eating, sleeping and toilet training. I stress the most recent research and best information about each subject, and share stories from my own practice to illustrate problems and solutions.
