Hi everybody, I know everyone's been really preoccupied with rank lists and match but I was wondering if anyone has any input about helpful books, PDA programs, or websites that might be useful during the intern year. Fourth year has been really relaxing I'm getting a little nervous about starting residency. Not as sharp as I was at the end of 3rd year.

I think you should keep the following in your white coat:
Washington Manual (or at least bring this with you every day)
Pocket Medicine (convenient)
Samford Antimicrobial (actually very useful once I figured out how to use it)
Tarascon Pharmacopia
Maxwell

I think you should read:
Harrison's or Ferri's at night

I think you should have in your favorites (computer addresses)
up to date
emedicine
espn.com

I would add the Tarascon Internal Medicine and Critical Care Pocketbook to this list.

I was under the impression you only needed Ferri's OR Whashington manual? What is the utility and pros and cons of each? Thanks!

Thanks a lot for the list. Also Up-To-Date for the PDA if you like to have it on you at all times, but you need a 1Gb card.

What is Maxwell's?

Oh, I just realized Maxwell's is the little paper bound book -- thought I was missing a textbook.

Ferri's has a text too. Not just the pocket book.
