“A lot of the appeal of internal medicine is Sherlockian—solving the case from the clues. We are detectives; we revel in the process of figuring it all out. It’s what doctors most love to do.”
This book is a piece of Art and I can't get enough of it! ...more
Don't ask me why.
Books like this one fascinate me. I'm struck by the way doctors work on people's bodies using a clever combination of science and intuition.
This is a particularly intriguing book to me as it deals with the art of diagnosis, using scientific knowledge along with experience and hunches, to figure out why things aren ...more

I got what I wanted and more. This book doesn't only give information but wisdom and inspiration for every medical student who wants to forge a refreshing and exciting path for himself/herself in the medical arena. Truly a book for all (and not just medical students). ...more
This book was recommended by a professor of mine who's doing her research on clinical reasoning. Needless to say, I dived into this book in the excitement that I would be able to enhance my clinical reasoning skill.

p.6- If she was going to figure it (the diagnosis) out, it would be because she'd find a clue that others (other doctors) had overlooked. The patient's story is often the best place to find that clue! It is our oldest diagnos ...more
This topic is very interesting, the art of diagnosis is the very type of detective work, where a physician is a detective and his area of investigation is patients' body and the stories they tell you. the physician has a map of the human body in his mind, knows how different organs work, and how are they linked with each other, how a rich interplay of different molecules constitutes a living human, how disorders in any of its components manifest itself via signs and symptoms. The physician then...more
I’ve been a standardized patient for about 15 years in a program that teaches physical examination and history taking to medical students. Thus, I was quite startled by Dr. Sanders’ assertion that these skills aren’t being taught anymore. ORLY, ...more
