This is a question bank of 380 multiple-choice questions designed for use during an Internal Medicine Clerkship. The questions are designed for "open book" use to reinforce a recommended reading schedule during our 12-week Internal Medicine clerkship at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. Since they are used in an "open book" manner, they require critical application of text material and are more difficult than standard student board-prep questions. The texts we require during our clerkship are the First Exposure Ambulatory Medicine and Inpatient Medicine texts, but the questions should adequately reinforce reading in any student-appropriate text.

Questions are grouped by topic. Some questions are written to be used in concert with pictures, as the pictures were not the property of the authors, the pictures have been removed and a one-line description of an appropriate image substituted. Users of the picture questions can find pictures to enable them to use these question stems as originally intended. Correct answer choices are indicated with bold text.
