Welcome Message

Welcome to the new Educational Resource Webpage of the Division of General Medicine!

Please allow us to walk you through the many features of this website:

1. Principles of GenMed Lectures

Easy access to the Tuesday 8AM lectures conducted by GenMed faculty. Powerpoint presentations and links to full text sources provided. Updated weekly. (Disclaimer: not intended to discourage actual, (in the flesh) attendance in the large conference room)

Original articles culled thoughtfully from each of the Top 3 peer-reviewed Internal Medicine journals: The New England Journal of Medicine, The Journal of the American Medical Association and Annals of Internal Medicine. A convenient way of keeping abreast with the latest in medicine. Updated monthly.

A necessary skill for any internist, ECG interpretation is facilitated by Powerpoint presentations and links to useful websites. ECG of the week is also featured.

10. Medical Jeopardy

Playing Medical Jeopardy is a great way to test your medical knowledge and have fun with your colleagues. Updated monthly.

11. Guide to Publishing

To whom much is given, much is expected in return. As medical professionals, we need to be aware that we are called not only to do patient care but to contribute meaningfully to medical science. Residents and students, in particular, should strive to publish at least one case report during training that can potentially bolster their academic record as well as the body of medical evidence. In this section you will find practical Power Point presentations that will guide you through each step of the process and other helpful pieces of literature. Furthermore, you are welcome to approach us for advice and other tips. Also included are useful articles on how to write case reports, research papers and reviews.
