Ask a Librarian5You may have seen us at clinical rounds, faculty council, or IRB sessions. You may have wondered why a medical librarian would be present outside the library.

Evolution and Medicine7The aim of the Evolution and Medicine column is to share fascination with the view of health and illness through an evolutionary lens.

PrimeCuts563With medical advances occurring at such a rapid pace, it is crucial for physicians to keep pace with the medical literature. Given the sheer quantity and breadth of literature released on a daily basis, this can quickly become an overwhelming endeavor. Primecuts (formerly known as ShortCuts) helps you stay current by taking a shallow dive into the most important recently released articles that should be on your radar. Our goal is to allow you to slow down for a few minutes and take some small sips from the medical literature firehose.
Spotlight8Our Spotlight series uses case vignettes to explore diagnosis, pathophysiology, and management of a wide variety of diseases seen in the outpatient and inpatient settings.
