Consumers can purchase medical textbooks from online retailers such as Amazon.com and Abebooks.com. Additionally, universities that offer degree programs in health-related fields, such as Duke University, sell medical textbooks at the campus bookstores.
Amazon.com sells a variety of new and used medical textbooks. Navigate to Amazon.com and type the words "medical textbooks" into the search box. A page opens that features the categories of the medical textbooks available, such as allied health, internal medicine, dentistry and psychology. Users should click on the category for the type of medical textbooks they are looking to purchase for a list of available books or enter the book title in the search box if looking for a specific title. After finding the book he wishes to purchase, a user should click on the purchase link to proceed to the checkout page. A credit card is needed to purchase the book online. Abebooks also offers new and used medical textbooks. The website requires the same process to search for and purchase textbooks as Amazon.com.
The Duke University medical center store sells medical textbooks that can be purchased in-person by walk-in customers. Those living outside the commuting area of Duke University can order medical textbooks online from the medical center store.
