Clinical Prep “Warms Up Your Brain” for Clinical Rotations

We just received word that AccessMedicine has added a new feature called, you guessed it, Clinical Prep. Access Medicine is a useful collection of books and other materials and with Clinical Prep they are trying to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

Clinical Prep can found in Quick Reference. See image to right.

Content is divided into familiar segments of clinical practice (see image below). Each segment contains clinical questions and answers and a link to the content from which the answer is drawn.

For example, if you were going to interview and examine a patient who might have Irritable Bowel Syndrome you might want to know what symptoms would make you consider alternate diagnoses?

Go to Gastrointestinal, scroll down to Irritable Bowel Syndrome and then look at the Diagnosis questions. See image below.

That is enough to get you started. Please let us know if you have any questions.
