Off the recommendation of one of our MICU attendings, I just read Cope's Early Diagnosis of the Acute Abdomen, a thin little book that gives a detailed overview of how to approach any patient with belly pain. Having read it, I can see why it's considered a medicine classic (even though it's written for surgeons). Highly informative and concise. Anyone know of any other books they'd consider a classic or just a great read on a medical topic? (Sorry, we can go back to asking if people with 250 steps have a shot at a bunch of medicine programs later).
