The advances in general internal medicine that occurred in 1997 are too numerous to describe in a single article; selecting the advances considered here required a careful assessment of both the clinical relevance and the strength of the evidence. This assessment was done by members of the Section of General Internal Medicine at the University of Chicago, who met biweekly during 1997 to review major medical journals for articles that might affect a general internist's practice. Priority was given to articles that addressed problems that general internists manage frequently. After completing this initial screening, we solicited advice from generalist and subspecialty colleagues and from the editors of ACP Journal Club.
