Your Voice

By Steve Kramer
I picked up this resource for my internal medicine rotation with the knowledge that it would also be useful in my clinical pathology rotations (I hope!). This book was invaluable during my month as a subintern on medicine. Not only could I interpret all of the lab tests that my patients had, I was able to look like a superstar by knowing both the correct test to order and what result I was looking for. This second part really helps you shine on a medicine rotation, because the first thing an attending will ask when you say "I want to order a morning cortisol" is "what result are you expecting."
