    Useful Books during Clerkships!

    Advertisements



    Okay, I am new to this forum and I did a search but I didn't find anything on the topic of books for clinicals that was overly useful (maybe I didn't look hard enough).

    I am about to start clinicals, and I am wondering what books people would recommend. The ones they thought were aww inspiring, and completely worth looking at and buying????


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    books

    For surgery, I recommend surgical recall, pretest surgery and First Aid for Surgery. Also, there are a number of question books out there...the more questions you do the better (this applies to all rotations)

    Medicine: Step up medicine is excellent. Use this and MKSAP and pretest and you'll do fine.

    Psych: I used BRS psych and the condensed version of Kaplan's text...I didn't do well on this rotation so use caution.

    books for clinicals

    You might find my post in the SGU forum helpful http://www.valuemd.com/sgu-medical-s...clinicals.html

    As for websites: UpToDate.com, Google.com (i'm not kidding, you'd be surprised how many MD's look for medical info using that search engine). rxlist.com, www.medpagetoday.com, labtestsonline.org (personal favorite of mine), and micromedex.com if your hosp. has access.
