Developed by the internal medicine residency teaching staff at the University of Colorado, this book presents patient-oriented cases for 88 diseases in all areas of internal medicine. Case studies follow a question-and-answer format that mirrors rounds presentations. Each case study walks you through the workup and management of the problem and reviews the underlying pathophysiology. The book is an excellent review tool for resident in-service exams or American Board of Internal Medicine certification exams.
This edition’s questions and problems have been extensively rewritten to incorporate new diagnostic methods and treatments. Coverage of urology and hepatology has been expanded.
This book proved to be an excellent book for transitioning from the realm of academic medicine (2nd yr med) to clinical thinking (3rd year med). The emphasis is on common diseases and simplified approaches, and thus serves as one of the few truly “readable” texts that simultaneously give a perspective of how to think from a case-based scenario. The format of the book in background/case/questions is perfect for emphasizing key points, and studying the cases strongly reinforces your understanding of disease by presenting you with a good “archetypal” model to work from. When used in conjunction with more detailed books for further study, one can gain a strong general grounding in common problems encountered in internal medicine. I would have awarded this book 5 stars if it included pictures (none at all). While this book is likely too simplistic for actual practicing residents/physicians, it is perfect for the transitioning medical student seeking a solid grounding to work from.
Concise and relevant.I use it to teach the juniors during our morning hand over sessions.
