I am currently going through an orientation for doing my clinical rotations in Internal Medicine and scheduled to start an MICU and Wards rotation soon. Basically I am a special trainee and would be functioning as an Intern for 3 months but its not residency ( I am applying to 2008 residency).I wanted to know what are the most useful and indispensable books/ pocket books/ PDA software for this. Something thats nice and easy to read would be great.
Also, I am interested in primary care medicine( Yes, whatever they say I love it!) and wondering about the residency programs in Chicago area. Would anyone have the scoop about Chicago programs? I really love this place now and don't want to move out but I think I'll have to apply elsewhere too for safety as I am just a marginal candidate and my USMLEs are not that stellar either.
Plz drop your 2 cents docs!
