    Clinical Rotations and books

    Are there any good books to carry around when doing my rotations at the hospital?

    I find the oxford handbooks too vague at times.

    You're right that they are a bit vague, however it's better to know something about a disease than nothing at all. If you get quizzed by your attending physician on a patient's disorder, you'll be in the clear if you know enough basic information.

    If you still want something more that you can brush up on with full detail though, you should take a look at PDA's/Pocket PC's, etc. You can get full text books or great programs that work pretty fast.

    Another extremely helpful thing to have is one of these:
