Winning Abstracts from the 2014 Medical Student Abstract Competition: Association Between Outpatient "No-shows" and Subsequent Clinical Outcomes
To improve care and achieve performance targets, healthcare systems focus on patients at high risk for not achieving preventive cancer screening and chronic disease management goals.

In the Clinic: Hypertension
Hypertension affects more than 65 million people in the United States, with about 2 million new cases diagnosed annually (1, 2). Most patients have primary or essential hypertension and are likely to remain hypertensive for life. Risk factors for hypertension include a family history of hypertension, African-American ethnicity, obesity, a high sodium or alcohol intake, and a sedentary lifestyle.
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.
