Book: Parkland Manual of In-Patient Medicine: An Evidence-Based Guide
Publisher: F. A. Davis Company
Founded in 1894 by the city of Dallas, Parkland
Memorial Hospital was established to provide the highest
quality medical care to the indigent sick, working
poor, and populations with special needs who would
otherwise have minimal access to health services. For
over 110 years, Parkland’s pledge to provide medical
care to all those in need has never wavered, never faltered.
Consistently ranked among the best hospitals in
the United States, Parkland is also the primary teaching
hospital of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical
School, and thousands of physicians have been
educated and mentored in the trenches of these historic
These physicians-in-training are indebted to
Parkland and its patients for providing an unparalleled
foundation from which to build prosperous private and
academic careers. Some have suggested that any textbook
of medicine actually pales in comparison to what
can be learned within the walls of this renowned hospital.
Based upon this belief, we have developed this
manual—a practical, yet comprehensive guide to the
acute management of the medical inpatient.
This portable, comprehensive, evidence-based handbook was created by medical residents for medical residents. Complete with diagnostic and exam findings, acute management, troubleshooting tips, and indications for emergency consultation, this text is the only one of its kind to actually guide diagnoses and therapies of hospitalized patients only, from admission to discharge. It's the perfect pocket companion.
