Introducing an innovative, systematic approach to understanding differential diagnosis, Frameworks for Internal Medicine helps students learn to think like physicians and master the methodology behind diagnosing the most commonly encountered conditions in internal medicine.
This highly visual resource draws on the proven “Chalk Talk” model and connects case-based, Q&A-style assessments of the organ systems of the body to corresponding “frameworks” that guide students through each step in the differential diagnosis process. Quickly accessible and available online for fast review, these unique frameworks not only equip students for success in clerkship but also help ensure more confident differential diagnoses in clinical settings.
