    Just wondering if there's a list somewhere of the landmark studies and/or major guidelines (like JNC 7, ATP III, etc) that are good to know for 3rd year/life.

    I'm at a place where the attendings LOVE the evidence-based stuff, and I always get pimped on it. Just once I'd like to be able to say "oh yeah! I did hear about that trial where they found out blah blah blah"

    Problem is I never know about such papers until an attending brings it up. I have no clue how to go about finding these landmark papers on my own (aside from sifting through a million pubmed articles, which would still be futile because I'd have no idea what to look for or how to recognize a landmark study when I see it). How do you guys do it? Is there a list?

      Another thing would be to go to NEJM every couple of month & check their review articles. They usually have 1-2 articles talking about a particular disease from start to finish......PE, CKD stage IV, Transverse myelitis etc. This helps when you have to present something. I usually type up a summary of the article & email the article & the summary to my account (or use dropbox) since you will be reading the SAME articles multiple times during school & residency
