A new, free pocket guide can help College members detect and cope with the effects of a chemical terrorist attack. The guide offers information on the epidemiological signs of a chemical attack, sentinel clues for forms of attack, basic management steps and reporting protocols.
Other tools are available from the College's Bioterrorism Resource Center.
ACP recently released the following three educational videos to help internists master common clinical skills:
"The Pelvic Examination" demonstrates patient-centered examination techniques and explains how to discriminate between normal and abnormal findings.
"The Sports Medicine Musculoskeletal Examination" shows physicians how to examine and treat patients with knee, shoulder or ankle injuries.
- "Efficiency Through Effective Communication" helps physicians learn communication skills that can make patient encounters in the office more productive.
The videos are part of an eight-title series from the College and range in price from $34.95 to $49.95. Visit Clinical Skills Videos for more information, or call ACP Customer Service at 800-523-1546, ext. 2600, or 215-351-2600 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m., EST) to purchase a video.
MKSAP for Students, winner of an award for outstanding program development from the Clerkship Directors in Internal Medicine, is now available for $20. (It normally sells for $32.50.)
The 250-page book offers nearly 400 self-assessment questions selected for students participating in their medicine clerkship rotation. Each question begins with a clinical vignette that covers one of 28 conditions identified in the national curriculum for internal medicine clerkships.
You can order MKSAP for Students online at or by calling ACP Customer Service at 800-523-1546, ext. 2600, or 215-351-2600 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m., EST).
