Turkey Book

The Turkey Book (originally in book format and named after an old phrase “don’t be a turkey!”) was created back in 1980 and it has undergoes revisions and updates nearly every year by the chapter.

Starting to fret about upcoming clerkships? Need a few extra mnemonics and guidelines as you begin to prepare for Step 1? Let the Turkey Book do the work for you!

The Turkey Book was started over 30 years ago by members of the UW chapter of Alpha Omega Alpha as a guidebook for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year medical students as they transition to their clinical clerkships. It is updated annually by each AOA class and gives you a foundation of knowledge that will help make you successful in the wards. It includes hundreds of topics for every rotation, including quick tips, memory tools, and reference guides: now at easy access in the form of an app!
