One of the RookieDoc members shot me an email asking me about the pharmacology references I recommend to carry around in your white coat as an intern or a resident.
Here was a portion of our exchange:
I noticed you recommended Tarrascon Pocket Pharm – which edition is better, shirt pocket or lab coat pocket? I know the shirt pocket is a lot smaller, but will that be enough? It would be nice not to have to tote around a bigger book…if you could let me know what you think that would be great! Thanks again! I appreciate you getting back to me so quickly.
You’re right, it’s better to carry around the smaller book.
Whatever you buy, save the receipt… and submit it for reimbursement if you have an education stipend.
I hope that helps 🙂
