Summary

Here is the first single, primary review tool to prepare students for both the internal medicine clerkship and the corresponding end-rotation NBME shelf examination. This logical alternative to several, limited-focus books blends a bullet-outline format students prefer in a review book with comprehensive paragraphs, as needed, for optimal preparation. A wealth of illustrations, charts, tables, graphs, and mnemonics speed and supplement learning. Ample content without superfluous detail enables students to readily evaluate and expand their knowledge of cardiology, pulmonary medicine, gastroenterology, hematology, neurology, endocrinology, rheumatology, nephrology, genitourinary disorders, fluids and electrolytes, dermatology, and musculoskeletal problems.
