Description / Abstract:


Scientific observations and clinical advances are moving at a remarkable pace. These changes require physicians to remain abreast of the latest developments not only in their areas of expertise but also in areas beyond their sphere of expertise. To assist physicians in this endeavor, the Department of Medicine at Mayo Clinic remains committed to providing information to physicians in a timely manner. Mayo Clinic Internal Medicine: Concise Textbook is designed to meet the needs of medical students, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physicians-in-training, and practicing clinicians by updating their knowledge of internal medicine and providing a concise review of internal medicine.

The overall approach to learning medicine can be summed up in two questions: What is it? What do you do for it? The goal is to have a concise review that is readable and easy to follow with algorithms, diagrams, radiographs, and pathologic findings. This book is divided into subspecialty topics, each chapter written by an author(s) with clinical expertise in the designated topic. Images and tables are provided. Each chapter has bulleted items that highlight key points. These may be summary points from previous paragraphs or new points. Bulleted items also address typical clinical scenarios. These scenarios emphasize classic clinical presentations. Pharmacy tables are included with many of the chapters. The scenarios and pharmacy tables highlight two key points. First, general internists, subspecialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and family physicians diagnose diseases in internal medicine. Second, the predominant type of patient management is pharmacologic. Knowledge of the indications, toxic effects, and drug interactions is of paramount importance.

We thank everyone who contributed to the development of this book. We are indebted to all authors for their contributions. We thank the staffs of the Section of Scientific Publications, Department of Medicine, and Division of Media Support Services at Mayo Clinic for their contributions to this book. The support and cooperation of the publisher, Informa Healthcare, are gratefully acknowledged.

We trust that this book will serve as an update and advance the reader's knowledge of internal medicine.

We hope that you enjoy this review as much as we have.
