While a medical student, I remember a fourth-year emergency medicine resident with a notebook of his own creation. We did not see a single patient over a dozen shifts that he didn't pull out the notebook to extract some high-yield crucial information about the variety of conditions we came across. It was like a clown car of medical knowledge. He let me look at it. It was glorious. What I found was, and subsequently copied, was the best medical notebook I have ever seen. I forget what I learned during those dozen shifts, but the organization of the medical notebook will stay with me for the rest of my career.
