Dr. Whitney Jackson's journey to her residency in internal
medicine at Philadelphia's Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
began in Canada. She was born in the providence of Manitoba and
moved to New Jersey at the age of three.
This year the theme of the Internal Medicine Interest Group
(IMIG) at the Keck School of Medicine of USC has been
collaboration. Forging new ties with our campus Primary Care
Community Medicine Student Coalition (PCCMSC) and the Southern
California ACP Chapter Council of Student Members has provided us
with many fresh ideas and the manpower to put them into action.

A 40-year-old African American female presented to the emergency

From the Greek word rheuma, "that which flows as a
river or stream." In ancient medical writings, "rheuma" was used to
describe any thin discharge from a body surface or orifice. This
term was eventually applied to an infection of the joints,
presumably because an effusion of the joint space marks the various
forms of arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic inflammatory
disease affecting approximately 0.5% of the population. Rheumatoid
arthritis is more common in women and may occur at any age, with
peak incidence at ages 50 to 60 years. The most prominent feature
is symmetrical joint swelling of the feet, hands, and knees,
although any joint (and some internal organs) may be affected.
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.
lightly: Discussing obesity difficult for internists
Physicians are ill-equipped to dicuss obesity with their patients,
a problem created by a lack of training in medical school, no clear
guidelines on what screening should consist of, and a lack of
confidence that patients would act on such counseling. But done
properly, such discussions help twice as many patients lose
literacy to increase adherence
Roughly 80 million Americans navigate health care's complexities
with limited health literacy skills. Learn easy steps that help
patients understand what they need to do, without formal literacy
screening or potentially embarrassing questions.

Life at Grady: No Sleep Till Brooklyn
The date was February 1st, 1994-my first day in the medical ICU at
NYU/Bellevue Hospital. Normally I would've been a bright-eyed and
bushy-tailed intern, ready to get cracking. The problem, however,
was that I was tired, like really tired. The night before I'd been
on call finishing my month on the medical wards and rolled into bed
at 3 a.m. Dragging myself in, I was hoping to suck it up, push
through the day and start fresh tomorrow.
