Approach to Internal Medicine: A Resource Book for Clinical Practice (3rd Edition)

File Size: 5.87 Mb

The third edition of Approach to Internal Medicine builds upon previous efforts to create a practical, evidence based, and concise educational resource for everyday clinical use and examination preparation. Approach to Internal Medicine now has an expanded repertoire of over 250 internal medicine topics, classified under 17 subspecialties. With the input of a new editor and publisher, we were able to significantly expand and update the content and substantially improve the layout, while maintaining the same conciseness and practicality found in previous editions.

Under each topic, the sections on differential diagnoses, investigations, and treatments are designed for the rapid retrieval of high yield clinical information and can be particularly useful when one is all alone assessing a patient at 3 o’clock in the morning. Other sections contain many clinical pearls that are intended to help one to excel in patient care. We also included many comparison tables aimed at highlighting the distinguishing features between various clinical entities and numerous mnemonics (marked by w). In addition to everyday practice, Approach to Internal Medicine can be effectively used as an examination study guide and teaching script.

For this new edition, we are very fortunate to have recruited a new associate editor, Dr. Alexander Leung, who brings with him a wealth of knowledge and outstanding commitment to medical education. We are most grateful to our section editors and contributors for their meticulous review of each subspecialty, providing expert input on the most up to date information. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Jean Claude Quintal as a resident reviewer and the Canadian Federation of Medical Students for its support of the previous edition. Finally, we would like to thank all previous and current users of this manual for their support and feedback.
