    What books would you recommend keeping from med school that would be useful during the internship year, if any...

    Of course with the exception of those specifically mentioned in the surgery book sticky above.

    I've got a box sitting next to me that I'm not interested in moving.

    I'm not sure I'd keep any medical books beyond an anatomy atlas/text and perhaps a good path book (of course, you are keeping your surgical texts and handbooks).

    Reason being that general medicine does change, you can easily look up stuff on the internet/Up-to-Date, etc. and if you aren't especially keen on keeping them its probably not necessary. IMHO.
