Intensive Review of Internal Medicine (1993) is the fourth edition of a study course developed by the Department of Continuing Education of Harvard Medical School and the Department of Medicine of Brigham and Women's Hospital.
I had the privilege of reviewing the third edition in 1988 for THE JOURNAL. This has allowed me to compare as well as critique the program. The Review does everything it was designed to do and compares favorably with the 1988 edition. There are 40 audiocassettes with the authors of the sections in the book speaking, rather than professional speakers. The quality of the audio version is excellent and follows the printed material faithfully. In fact, that is the only criticism I could find with the course. The tapes are so precise that one is unable occasionally to follow the discussion as references are made to illustrations and diagrams.
The printed material has 59 lectures
