5 STAR REVIEW FROM DOODYS
This is a book for all students of medicine no matter their level of experience.
“…the leading comprehensive authority in internal medicine.”
Reviewer
Vincent Carr,  DO, MSA, FACC, FACP  (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description
For internal medicine specialists, Harrison’s has been the go-to reference on the current understanding of pathophysiology for decades. This 20th edition updates the 19th edition published in 2012.
Purpose
The purpose remains the same: to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date reference for learners throughout their careers, from medical students through experienced attending physicians and consultants.
Audience
This is a book for all students of medicine no matter their level of experience. The authors have brought together the most knowledgeable and experienced experts to review the latest updates from the journal literature to provide a foundation for the practice of medicine.
Features
The book is divided into 20 parts that cover broad topics such as the profession of medicine, cardinal manifestations and presentation of disease, oncology and hematology, immune-mediated, inflammatory, and rheumatological diseases, and disorders associated with environmental exposures. The parts are further divided into specific topic sections, such as pain, therapy for bacterial disease, neurologic critical care. Finally, these sections are subdivided into chapters covering conditions such as urticaria, angioedema, and allergic rhinitis, with lists of further reading suggestions. Throughout the book, there are a great number of full-color figures, algorithms, and intuitive tables to support the text. As readers become familiar with the book’s format, it is very easy to use the pertinent patient management algorithm in the front cover page that refers them directly to the relevant page. There is also a listing of available videos; supplemental topics, such as microbial bioterrorism, technique of lumbar puncture; and atlases of rashes, oral manifestations of disease, and electrocardiography. An electronic version of the book is available for separate purchase through the AccessMedicine website, which allows a 30-day trial subscription.
Assessment
This new edition continues the outstanding history of this book as the leading comprehensive authority in internal medicine.
