Dr. Mansoor shares his gift with the world (as opposed to just OHSU IM Residents and students)

CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. André Mansoor, OHSU DOM Faculty, Director of the Procedure Service, and now bestselling author of his acclaimed addition to the Internal Medicine Textbook Pantheon "Frameworks for Internal Medicine".

Any OHSU IM Resident or Student knows of Dr. Mansoor's reputation for producing high-quality, useful "frameworks" on the wards which can break down any overwhelming problem into bite-size chunks that are easy to understand, and this technique has become a hallmark of our teaching culture. Dr. Mansoor has combined all of his best Frameworks into a textbook format complete with annotations and figures to help Internal Medicine learners at ANY level improve their grasp on the subject matter.

Although it is now SOLD OUT on Amazon (thanks to some well-publicized tweets), you can still obtain it available directly from the publisher here.

CONGRATS ANDRÉ!
