This is an absolute must-read for students entering clinical rotations. The authors of The Successful Match: 200 Rules to Succeed in the Residency Match bring their same combination of practical recommendations and evidence-based advice to clerkships.

The book begins as a how-to guide with clerkship-specific templates, along with sample notes and guides, for every aspect of clerkships.

The book reviews proven strategies for success in patient care, write-ups, rounds, and other vital areas.

Grades in required rotations are the most important academic criteria used to select residents, and this critical year can determine career choices. This book shows students what they can do now to position themselves for match success.

An invaluable resource for medical students - no student should be without it.

Since 2006, Success on the Wards (and its previous edition) has been adopted by a number of allopathic and osteopathic medical schools as a required or recommended textbook for medical students beginning clerkships. Educators have praised this resource as having the right combination of practical recommendations and evidence-based advice for clerkship success.
