The Washington Manual® is the most vital on-call resource for house staff and faculty around the world!

Although dedicated to the medicine housestaff of Washington University/Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the book really is for all who practice inpatient medicine. Having said that, it is also helpful for those who practice outpatient medicine to remain current and understand what has occurred when their patients are admitted to an inpatient facility.
