Winning Abstracts from the 2014 Medical Student Abstract Competition: The Clock is Ticking: Improving general medicine discharge communication timeliness

Subspecialty Careers: Geriatric Medicine
Geriatric medicine involves the recognition of differences in presentation of disease and the importance of maintaining functional independence in elderly patients.More
In the Clinic: Dementia
Dementia is defined as a decline in 2 or more cognitive capacities, causing impairment in function but not alertness or attention. The decline in cognition distinguishes it from lifelong intellectual disability (previously called "mental retardation") and single learning disorders, both of which are present from birth and symptomatic in childhood.
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.
