    If you have a Harrison's or Cecil's that's good to have. Oh, and I have to admit I went back to my Bates for physical exam stuff esp when studying for the Step II CS. But maybe I'm the only freak...

    Nah, I don't have either of those books. Will check em out when I get up there to do my clinicals and see if they're worth getting. Pretty soon I better start researching what books are good for clinicals anyway. I remember seeing some recommendations in the past on this site but stupidly never wrote them down. Oh well, guess that's what search is for.

    I was wondering about Bates though.

    Thanks dunsoon.

    I can't comment on books coz I'm not much of a book person, but found I needed some of Dr R's pharm pdf's - specially those at-a-glance sheets he puts in the gout, diuretics, asthma, etc. lectures during the medicine rotation. Luckily I was able to download & print off of Angel just in time for rounds & had answers handy when pimped.

    Netter for surgery for sure, +/- baby moore. Definitely Haines if your hosp. has a neuro core.

    There are 'bibles' for each respective rotation, but they're not texts you used in the basic years because the topics are laid out differently. You may need them as reference occassionally, but any of that info can easily - and way more quickly - be found on UpToDate.

    speaking of uptodate, do hospitals have like hospital accounts that they give out the username and passwords for? or are we just going to have to dish out the $200 or whatever it costs a year for our own subscription?

    At LICH it's installed on the hosp library computers we aren't given id/pw for home use.
    Folks elsewhere: would you like to add journals' access situation @ your hospitals?

    so it's like a CD-Rom then? cause they have two options, CD-Rom and the internet version. The internet version is a lot more updated but i think you can update the cd-rom too. Also does your hospital give you access to medical journals? If so do they give you access to the internet site or the hard copies?

    st joes has access to the mount sinai data base, so we have access to uptodate, mdconsult, etc. from anywhere in the hospital (via wireles and your own computer) or on the library computers.

    if you want to access at home however you will have to buy your own access.
