The need to stay current on clinical trial literature is of paramount importance in medicine. However, it is extremely challenging for the practicing hospital clinician and busy medical student to keep up with new study results and current expert consensus.

Evidence-Based Clinical Reasoning in Medicine presents extensively referenced, clinically relevant acute-care case studies. For students, the text is designed not only to help them care for patients during their medicine sub-internship rotation, but also to provide a valuable resource as they prepare for their end-of-rotation NBME shelf examination. Chapters include “Bottom Line” and “Take-Home Points” sections that will aid the reader processing the primary points of the acute care topics.
