Patients do not start by telling you, “I have a pulmonary embolism.” Instead they say, “I am short of breath.”
Just like in real life, Master the Wards: Internal Medicine Handbook approaches diseases from the point of view of (1) how they present to the emergency department or ambulatory center, and (2) how you will assess starting with the chief complaint.
Each disease is presented by name, but each section starts with the most frequent chief complaint, then quickly tells you how to assess each patient.
Next we show you:
• Who needs immediate treatment before testing?
• What is the differential? What caused the problem?
• What tests do I need first?
You can use a standard textbook to start each disease with the etiology and underlying cause.
Master the Wards: Internal Medicine Handbook is not exclusively a Step 2 USMLE or COMLEX Part II book. There is no doubt it will help you in this area-and we have included tips that will raise your score while you are learning medicine. But that is not the primary objective of the book.
The primary objective, besides keeping you from having arrhythmias on rounds, is to put you in the position of ordinary day-to-day work and management on the hospital floor, in the emergency department, and at the clinic.

It is day 1 of your Medicine rotation. You show up early, but you do not know where to go. You are not sure where you will be assigned. You do not know which team you will be placed on or what your attending or residents will want.
This book is about fear. Your fear. The fear of making a mistake, of taking an incorrect action, of looking like an idiot in front of your team-or your patient.
Master the Wards: Internal Medicine Handbook is designed to free you from fear. It is based on my 25 years on the medical wards as a supervising physician, teacher, evaluation and letter writer, and most of all, on my own third and fourth years of medical school experience, where, mostly, I felt stupid. I have never, ever forgotten what it felt like to be uncertain on the wards about the expectations of my own residents and attending.
To your attending, certain steps seem “ridiculously obvious” (e.g., looking at the chest x-ray yourself for a pneumonia case, reading the EKG for a chest pain case, or knowing the platelet count for a bleeding person). As a new student you will think, “I am new here. If you had told me you wanted me to know the coagulation test in variceal bleeding prior to rounds, I would have checked. I did not know.”
