Abstract:

This handbook book offers a concise yet thorough overview of both clinical and factual knowledge required of medical students as they journey through their internal medical rotations. Included in this book are all the pertinent information for third year medical students and interns on the ward who are working up patients and preparing for the Step 2 and Step 3 exams. Beyond a simple pocketbook containing the minimal knowledge expected for the boards, this guide is also a comprehensive source of practical knowledge needed to evaluate common diagnoses. In addition to lessons on clinical anatomy and physiology, comprised here are succinct work-up and treatment plans for numerous presenting complaints. Internal medical topics covered in this book include: cardiology, nephrology, pulmonology, neurology, oncology, infectious diseases, hematology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, dermatology, and rheumatology. Dr. Atif Qasim is a veteran hitchhiker in the field of internal medicine from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Here he presents his wealth of clinical pearls in a package of necessary knowledge to keep overwhelmed medical students from getting lost as they trek the steepest part of the learning curve in medicine.
