  • Tarascon Hospital Medicine App is a must have as reference or just pleasure reading. Read it anywhere, any room, any time of day. Even while watching Scrubs. Just don't forget to buy it.


  • I have the Tarascon Hospital Pocketbook and when I saw this app I was thrilled.  One less book in my white coat!  You definitely want this with you if you practice hospital medicine.  It is amazingly comprehensive yet free of non-essentials.  It also has a critical care section with all the "must know" topics.  Very up-to-date and evidence based.  If I could give it 10 stars, I would.

  • As with the Pocketbook, the Tarascon Hospital Medicine App brings up to date clinical information to your fingertips.  Well organized and easy to use reference for hospitalists, residents and medical students.  Highly recommended!

  • The iPhone version of the Tarascon Hospital Medicine Pocketbook is great as it allows me to quickly find the reference material I'm looking for.  I'm still amazed by the volume of information Dr. Esherick was able to pack into a small book, and now a small, low priced app.

  • Every time I refer to the Hospital Medicine App, I am impressed and surprised by the amount of practical information, with differentials, clinical risk predictors, validated decision-making algorithms, management guidelines, practical pointers, updated references, etc.  Overall, highly recommended.

  • Same as always, another true, 'it knows what you are looking for' quick reference from Dr. Esherick.  Lots of simple and clear charts. Updated clinical information. Automatic App updates. Nice layouts and not cramped.  Well designed. To-the-point answers to common questions. A definite helpful tool in aid of your clinical decision making.
