This pocket book is a quick reference to common diseases encountered during clerkship rotations in all specialties. For each condition, the book outlines the pertinent positives and negatives in the history and physical examination, so the student will know what to ask, what to look for on the patient, and what to order. The student will be prepared to present the case effectively and field the resident's or attending's most likely questions. Evidence-based literature citations are included to prepare students for evidence-based practice questions. 'Pearls' sections note the most frequently asked 'p.i.m.p.' questions. Numerous tables, photographs, and x-rays are included.
