About this book

Hospital medicine has expanded beyond the practice of internal medicine to co-manage patients in the fields of orthopedics, neurosurgery and general surgery. This concise guide covers the evolution and expanding scope of hospital medicine and the variety of clinical, ethical and administrative situations a Hospitalist encounters. 500 questions on inpatient care, co-management of patients and hospital system management are provided with the goal of assessing clinical and academic competency. Questions feature actual cases with evidence-based solutions. Useful to physicians, house staff and advanced nurse practitioners, this up-to-date referenced learning text encompasses all aspects of hospital care.

Reviews

“This is a book to challenge the thinking of those in residency programs about the care of hospitalized patients. The purpose is to teach, through a Socratic method, the salient points of hospital-level medicine. The audience clearly is residents, hospitalists, and those whose consultative practice includes the in-patient arena. … This is an extremely helpful tool for studying in-patient medical care and the corollaries of how to be a consultant and how to be a good steward of hospital resources.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2016)
