"In a Page Inpatient Medicine" provides a quick overview of diseases, "on call" complaints, and diagnostic procedures encountered in the inpatient setting. Section One is organized by disease; Section Two is organized by complaint (signs and symptoms); and Section Three is organized by diagnostic test or procedure. Each disease, complaint, or test/procedure is covered in an easy-to-follow two-page spread with key points bolded. This pocket-sized book is ideal for interns, medical students in internal medicine or family medicine rotations, or USMLE review. It will also appeal to physician assistant and nurse practitioner students.
