About this app



This is the MGH White Book App, available at

Please see the tutorial videos for installation guides for iOS and Android. The App is accessible without a login from computers and WiFi within the MGH network (similar to how UpToDate works). From outside networks, including phones on mobile internet, you'll need to login with your or email address. MGH internal medicine resident alumni can retain access by providing their permanent email here. At this time we unfortunately cannot accommodate requests from providers who are not MGH internal medicine residency alumni. Preliminary year interns at MGH can retain access.

This app currently contains content from the 2023-2024 MGH Department of Medicine Housestaff Manual, aka the "White Book" (see the Preface for more information).

It is a collaboration between the editorial leadership of the White Book, the MGH Department of Medicine, and housestaff from the MGH Internal Medicine Residency.

The following medical students and residents generously volunteered to design and layout content for the 2023-2024 edition:

WB app editors: Enoch Chung, Sahar Shahamatdar, Ladonya Jackson, Katherine Kaugars, Eashwar Somasundaram, Yichi Zhang, Andrea Martinez, Miyabi Saito, Alexander Hoffner-Heinike, Ellen Kendall, Shawna Bilton

Page editors: Priya Amin, Chantal Barksdale, Ryan Benavente, Shraddha Damaraju, Tola Ibikunle, Kalei Hering, Laboni Hoque, Lynn Hur, Dan Leisman, Andrew Nguyen, Katelyn Pastick, Margo Peyton, Arushi Saini, Leanna Travis, Amy Vo, and Annette Wang.

This project would not have been possible without Alexandra Wick and Jacqueline Henson, the editors of the 2020-2021 White Book, who supported this project and oversaw revisions to the first edition of the app. We are also grateful to Hannah Abrams and Alexandra Doms, editors of the 2023-2024 White Book, for supporting the collaboration between the print and app versions. We owe a great debt to the many editors and contributors for the current and past versions.

We would like to especially thank Jay Vyas, Gabby Mills, and Libby Cunningham for supporting this project from its initial stages, as well as the 2022-2023 Chief Residents: Bobby Arao, Radhika Jain, Jessie Logeman, and Sarah Street.

The White Book App runs on a software platform called CareTeam, created and hosted by The East Harlem Software Company. For more information about CareTeam, please contact
