A point-of-care guide for internal medicine trainees

When students and residents begin a new rotation in internal medicine, they often start from scratch, relying on their own research to prepare for consultations. What questions are crucial during history taking? What should the physical examination and investigations focus on? What should the consultation write-up include? Now, physician learners can turn to Vancouver Notes for Internal Medicine for guidance on conducting consultations in each of the core internal medicine subspecialties.

Vancouver Notes provides learners with an organized approach to common presentations in internal medicine. For each subspecialty, it lays out the process for identifying key information and communicating findings and management recommendations to a patient’s health-care team. Developed through the efforts of more than 90 resident physicians and faculty members at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver Notes combines valuable clinical pearls in a single, accessible resource to give students and residents the tools they need to succeed from day one.
