American College of Physicians publishes 'Internal Medicine Essentials for Clerkship Students'

The American College of Physicians (ACP), the nation's largest medical-specialty society, has released "Internal Medicine Essentials for Clerkship Students 2007-2008," produced in collaboration with the Clerkship Directors in Internal Medicine (CDIM).
