On day one, you're brimming with excitement, surrounded by a
hundred plus classmates starting a similar journey, and can't wait
to meet your first patient. By day ninety, your eyes can't stay
open, classmates file into a dozen different study rooms after
class, and the phone buzzes with a message reminding you to eat
from your worried parents. Medical students often see some
magnitude of this happening around them, or to them, and
sometimes the transition is a silent one. Then, there comes the
various approaches to transitioning to wards. Where do personal
relationships fit in?
Efforts to resuscitate a seriously ill toddler had come to a
near standstill in the emergency room at New York City's
Presbyterian Hospital when Dr. Janice Barnhart's mother heard a
female doctor burst into the emergency room shouting at staff,
"Don't stand there and let that baby die." The unconscious toddler

emergency room after swallowing white-coated pills that "looked
like M & Ms candy."

Low serum 25(OH) D levels are associated with higher prevalence
of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). It has been proposed that
this inverse relationship is non-linear in that the association
diminishes with rising 25(OH) D levels. To test this hypothesis, we
examined the relationship between 25 (OH) D and PAD as measured by
Ankle-Brachial index (ABI) in healthy adult US population.
Physicians who specialize in Sleep Medicine are trained to
detect, treat, and prevent sleep disorders, such as obstructive
sleep apnea, snoring, insomnia, sleep walking, and jet lag.
People with insomnia have trouble falling or staying asleep, and
the result is poor-quality sleep of insufficient duration. Insomnia
is common, affecting 1 in 3 adults intermittently and 1 in 10
adults chronically, and can seriously affect wellbeing. It
typically causes excessive daytime sleepiness, irritability, and
lack of energy. Long-term insomnia may lead to depression,
inattention, learning and memory problems, and job or school
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.

New vaccines and their recommendations have added complexity and
made it tough to stay current. For patients, the extra costs can be
