The Gist of Emergency Medicineã
- The Management of Real or Simulated Patient Encounters-
-A Review Book-
The Gist of Emergency Medicine was written for oral board candidates, practicing physicians, residents, interns and medical students. It is meant to compliment standard texts and oral board courses. It is also designed to refresh and reinforce the "trouble-shooting neuronal synapses" of the emergency room physician and as a brief reference in the ER.
Hello there! I hope you find the downloads of the "Gist" useful. The book represents many hundreds of hours over the past several years and I am hoping that others derive some benefit from my "hobby".

p.s. I passed the ABEM orals using this book (in 1992, when the book was only 74 pages long!).
