With hospital medicine growing rapidly in both scale and complexity, the learning curve for students is steeper, while experienced physicians are often called upon to act as mentors and caregivers in areas outside their primary fields of expertise. Becoming a Consummate Clinician, an exciting new book in the series Hospital Medicine: Current Concepts, describes in practical terms how clinicians and students can think more critically and act more insightfully in this era of information expansion and time compression. Developed for hospital-based clinicians and physicians-in-training, the book provides a road map for navigating key challenges in real-life medical practice related to assessing, integrating, and presenting clinical information. Clearly formatted and easily accessible, the book:

Fully integrates and emphasizes error avoidance and reductionHighlights uses and limitations of algorithmic and evidence-based medicine in medical decision-makingDetails effective strategies for looking and re-looking at biomedical dataExplains essential do s and don ts of medicalpractice, from patient history and exam to differential diagnosesDescribes best practices and pitfalls of gathering, processing, and communicating medical informationPresents strategies for attending physicians to develop the critical thinking skills of their trainees

Featuring real-world clinical examples, this concise, down-to-earth text is written to help both practitioners and students improve their overall clinical performance, and learn to communicate effectively with members of the caregiving team.
