As Editors-In-Chief of Toronto Notes 2014, we are proud to celebrate the 30th Anniversary Edition of the present text.
First produced in 1983 from a set of study notes drafted by medical students at the University of Toronto, Toronto Notes has grown to be one of the premier study resources for generations of medical graduates in Canada and abroad. This rich history is rooted in our commitment to publish a studentedited, comprehensive study resource to serve students across clinical rotations and in preparation for the Canadian Medical Licensing Examination (Step 1) and the United States Medical Licensing Examination (Step 2).
Over the past 29 years, our vision has not wavered. We continuously build on the feedback of our readers to enhance the features of the text, handbook and accompanying online resources. The focus of Toronto Notes 2014 is to make medical knowledge accessible and retainable by distilling information into highquality figures, charts and helpful mnemonics. This edition features a new easy-to-view layout across all 29 chapters, with updated text-referencing icons and illustrations. In keeping with rapid advances in medical research, the text also features newly updated best practice guidelines, including recent high-impact trials for clinical practice. The accompanying Toronto Notes Handbook also offers new algorithms, flowcharts and new reference cards to serve as a highyield and portable resource across clinical rotations. This year we are also excited to announce the launch of the first colour edition of the Toronto Notes eBook to offer our readers an enhanced mobile learning experience.
Toronto Notes 2014 is produced by Toronto Notes for Medical Students Inc., a non-for profit organization supporting various medical student initiatives including community outreach programs, medical school clubs, local charity endeavors, and student bursaries. This year we are especially proud to support the Nishant Fozdar Memorial Award. Nishant was an exceptional medical student, colleague and dear friend in the University of Toronto medical class of 2014. This annual award was established in his memory, and will be awarded to University of Toronto students who demonstrate Nishant’s many qualities, including his dedication to education and community involvement.
Throughout the production of this edition, we have benefited from the gracious help of our student colleagues as well as numerous faculty and administrators at the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine. Our dedicated team of over 150 students, artists and faculty editors remain the cornerstone of Toronto Notes and continue to enhance the text in its’ content and clarity each year. We are grateful for our lead editors Andy Tyrell, Vicki Wang, Maria Jogova, Howard Meng, Grace Lam, Hamed Nazzari, Jieun Kim, Daniel Soong, Melini Gupta, Jeffrey Martin and Gautam Goel as well as our 2014 production managers Sheron Perera and Bailey Dyck for their tireless work and dedication to this project. We would also like to acknowledge our partners at Type & Graphics, particularly Enrica Aguilera, for their continued guidance in the production of this text. We also thank our immensely talented cover artists Karyn Ho and Catherine Kang for their innovative vision and immaculate execution of the featured mosaic cover illustration.
Finally we would like to express our deepest gratitude to all previous Editors-In-Chief of Toronto Notes. Each editorial team left their unique mark on the text and helped Toronto Notes grow into one of the most recognizable student publications in Canada. Much like the pieces in a mosaic, the product of these countless contributions have formed the 30th Anniversary Edition before us today.
