Join fellow Ivy/TCAN alumni for a reading and discussion from Columbia alumnus Dr. Phillip K. Peterson as he speaks from his Johns Hopkins Press book, “Get Inside Your Doctor’s Head”.
With so many medical tests and treatments, so much scientific and medical information, and some of it contradictory, how can people make the best medical decisions? In his short and easy-to-read book, Dr. Peterson explains the Ten Rules of Internal Medicine. The book provides commonsense advice about such questions as when to seek treatment, when to get another opinion and when to let time take its course. Turn to the Ten Rules when you are weighing your doctor’s recommendations about diagnostic tests and treatments, and use them to communicate more effectively with your doctor.
