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 elsewhere, or on 4G, 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 2021-2022 MGH Department of Medicine Housestaff Manual, aka the "White Book" (see the Preface for more information), along with content ported from the now defunct housestaff intranet called OurMGH.

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 2021-2022 edition:

James Alzate, Richard Baylis, Jamie Brett, Olivia Davies, Jake Fox, Samee Hameed, Jennie Hanberg, Jen Hao, Abigail Healy, Teshika Jayewickreme, Minjee Kim, Juhye Lee, Nathanael Lee, Rachael Mahle, Kevin Miller, Rachel Muster, Showly Nicholson, J.C. Panagides, Katelyn Pastick, Max Quinn, Pradeep Rajendran, Marissa Savoie, Priya Shah, Eriene Sidhom, Smrithi Sukumar, Sarah Tait, Brandon Temel, Shivani Thaker, Methma Udawatta, Kruti Vora, Laura Yockey

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 Daniel Gromer and Leslie Chang, editors of the 2021-2022 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 2021-2022 Chief Residents: Yousef Badran, Kathleen McFadden, Brian Mugo, and Richard Newcomb.

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
