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).

"Internal Medicine Essentials" covers the common problems and disorders a student is likely to see on the internal medicine rotation. The textbook has a publicly accessible Web component with additional clinical photos, tables, screening tools and other instruments.

"Internal Medicine Essentials" is unique in that it was created by faculty who helped design the internal medicine clerkship curriculum and who are actively involved in teaching and advising students on the internal medicine clerkship. The textbook was written by 67 authors representing 49 different medical schools. The editor-in-chief is Patrick C.
