Overview

50 Studies Every Doctor Should Know presents key studies that have shaped the practice of medicine. Selected using a rigorous methodology, the studies cover topics ranging from dieting to cardiovascular disease, insomnia to obstetrics. For each study, a concise summary is presented with an emphasis on the results and limitations of the study, and its implications for practice. Brief information on other relevant studies is provided, and an illustrative clinical case concludes each review. A section of review questions and answers is included at the back of the book to ensure that readers take away the key messages from each study. This book is a must-read for health care professionals and anyone who wants to learn more about the data behind clinical practice.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This book analyzes 50 of the critical studies that have become the basis for every clinician's practice of medicine.
Purpose: The author details his experience as a medical student in attempting to find and understand the important medical studies. This book outlines the studies and enables readers to build on these through their review of newer relevant studies.
Audience: This is a highly valuable starting point for medical students and those in residency training, but the book is also useful for anyone interested in evidence-based medical practice and for policymakers who need a starting point to understand current medical decision-making.
Features: The book is divided into sections on preventive medicine, internal medicine, surgery, etc., and then chapters based on individual studies. Each chapter outlines the research question, the funding source, dates of the study, sample characteristics, and most importantly, the results of the study and implications for clinical translation.
Assessment: What makes this book extraordinary are the summaries of the studies followed by the implications for medical practice. This is a most important summarization for every clinician in practice and, hopefully, the author will follow up with updated editions in the future.
