This concise and practical reference, tailored for fellows, residents, and medical students rotating on gastroenterology subspecialty services, covers both inpatient and outpatient management of gastroenterology with the same clinical practicality as the widely popular Washington Manual™ of Medical Therapeutics. With gastroenterology continuing to expand as a specialty, there is a wealth of new insights on disease pathophysiology, diagnostic tools, and management options that this manual helps to address.
It is the result of a collaborative effort of residents, fellows, and clinical faculty from the distinguished Washington University School of Medicine and serves as a practical quick reference guide to the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal ailments.
