Third year medical student, UCLA Medical School I think this format is extremely useful for both upper class medical students as well as interns and residents. You can review long detailed discussions in textbooks in a matter of minutes. Each disease in one page is a great idea that to my knowledge hasn't been done in the past. 2nd year resident A one-page summary of important information about a disease entity is certainly something that especially students, and to a lesser degree, interns, would find very useful. I really like the way that the information is formatted, with easy eye access to different sub-topics. Too often, pocket references contain the needed information, but it takes too long to find it in several pages of verbiage. Students and interns are trying to juggle several patients at once, and may have only a few moments to review information before being quizzed by faculty. Certainly, the etiology, signs/symptoms, diagnosis criteria and treatment are of primary importance. Having the epidemiology and clinical course data handy will also be quite useful......Strengths include the easy and quick to read templated format, the inclusion of the most important (i.e., most frequently asked about) facts, and the inclusion of all the commonly seen disease entities. A book such as this is needed and sought after by students and residents. Second year medical student, George Washington University I think the format is a nice review page for quick retrieval. The book also seems comprehensive and ideal for interns starting in the hospital. Second year medical student, Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine The way the pages are laid out is really nice and provides good information in a format that is fast and easy to read. I wish more books had this templated format.
