"Don' t be a turkey!" was an old phrase that meant "Don't be a fool, a coward, a chicken, inept, a failure…" When you have the Turkey Book with you, you won't be any of these things! The Turkey Book, now an app, was first published in 1980 by the UW Chapter of AOA, and is updated annually. The manual is a compilation of helpful hints, high-yield facts, and need-to-know introductions to many clinical topics that you will encounter in your clinical years of medical education. It can be used as a starting point, and/or to supplement other more exhaustive references.
