Hi,

I found out that I matched and thought I'd get a start on preparing myself for first year. Do you guys have any suggestions on the books I should read either prior to starting or during my internship?

I did some research on the internet and it looks like the Washington Manual Intern Survival Guide and the Internal Medicine on Call are some of the suggested books.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Thanks. I just requested "the house of god" from my library.

Does anyone have any suggestions on the medical books to read before or during internship (other than step 3 materials).

Thanks.

Just relax, take a vacation.
