Mayo Clinic Internal Medicine Board Review, 10th edition, is designed to meet the needs of physicians-in-training and practicing clinicians by updating their knowledge of internal medicine and preparing them for the ABIM certification and maintenance-of-certification examinations in internal medicine. For the 10th edition, contributors were asked to map chapters according to ABIM goals. At least 50 percent of the material will be new, with the remainder changed and updated. The redesign is intended to cover all ABIM goals while streamlining the text to make it more user-friendly. Large chapters have been broken up into smaller content-oriented chapters to facilitate shorter, more focused study opportunities. This book is divided into subspecialty topics (eg, allergy, cardiology, dermatology, etc) and cross-content topics related to general internal medicine (eg, men's health, women's health, geriatrics, etc). Questions and answers have been pulled from the main text to a companion book of Q&As to facilitate study.

Clinical judgment is a critical aspect – perhaps the most critical aspect – of efficient, accurate, and cost-effective patient care. Focusing on essential clinical skills, On Rounds: 1000 Internal Medicine Pearls helps clinicians in training and in practice to identify the critical findings that will simplify complex clinical problems and lead to an accurate diagnosis. One thousand easy-to-remember clinical aphorisms, or “pearls,” help you distinguish the important findings from the incidental, pointing out the distinctive features amidst the mass of data that is accumulated in the evaluation of a sick patient, and leading to the development of mature clinical judgment. Go “on rounds” with one of the most respected educators in internal medicine and learn from his nearly 50 years of clinical experience. Focus on the areas that are often a source of confusion for students, trainees, and even seasoned practitioners. Learn each pearl in a relevant clinical context, with tables, clinical images, and physiology information, where appropriate. Recognize “black pearls:” statements that, although widely believed, are demonstrably false. Improve your clinical judgment skills whether you’re a resident or an experienced clinician. Carry these pocket-sized pearls with you for quick reference.
