Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Sally Ling, M.D.;FACP(University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine)
Description: This is a handbook of facts and information that is often sought by medical students and physicians in training. The use of a table format throughout the book is novel.
Purpose: It is intended to provide quick access to information used for diagnosis and treatment of common medical conditions.
Audience: Third and fourth year medical students and interns are the intended audience. Almost all the contributors are either faculty or housestaff at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
Features: Topics ranging from primary care to subspecialties are included. The strength of the book is its inclusion of many facts. However, the format can get distracting, and there are occasional typographical errors.
Assessment: Some students will find the table format of this book useful and clear and, as such, a helpful tool on the wards or in the clinic.
