I am in infectious disease right now and I am unsure about how to approach the antibiotics. As of right now, I have a solid understanding of the mechanisms of each antibiotic as well as their side effects, but for the life of me, I can't remember which antibiotics are used for which bacteria because there are so many different options, and it seems like these options will certainly change depending on where I practice. Should I look up what the most common treatment for each infection is and memorize that? Should I only be expected to understand mechanisms/side effects while in pre-clinicals? I guess I am just having a hard time because with the amount of information I am learning I will only be able to associate one bacteria with one antibiotic. I am sure in the future I can add depth to my pre-existing knowledge and factor in allergies, cost, etc, but right now trying to learn 10 antibiotics for 1 bacteria just isn't feasible. Any advice is appreciated because I need it.
