Winning Abstracts from the 2014 Medical Student Abstract Competition: The Prevalence and Correlates of Lifetime Mental Disorders and Trauma Exposures in Urban and Rural Settings: Results from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R)
Mental health disorders are a product of both genetics and environment. Distinctions between rural and urban environments are likely to produce different frequencies of traumatic exposures, and thus differences in the occurrence of mental health disorders.More
Subspecialty Careers: Medical Oncology
The word oncology is derived from the Greek word ongkos, meaning “a bulk or mass,” which later was changed to mean “a tumor.” Medical oncology is the subspecialty which involves the diagnosis and management of benign and malignant neoplasms.More
In the Clinic: Colorectal Cancer Screening
Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States (1). Outside the United States, the impact of colorectal cancer is also immense. In terms of global incidence, it ranks third among cancers affecting women and fourth for men (2).
In the Clinic is a monthly feature in Annals of Internal Medicine that focuses on practical management of patients with common clinical conditions. It offers evidence-based answers to frequently asked questions about screening, prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and patient education and provides physicians with tools to improve the quality of care. Many internal medicine clerkship directors recommend this series of articles for students on the internal medicine ambulatory rotation.
