About Dr. Mangione
Dr. Mangione received his MD summa cum laude from the Catholic University of Rome and trained in internal medicine and pulmonary and critical care medicine at the Medical College of Pennsylvania.

He has been honored with multiple awards for his clinical teaching, including Emory’s Golden Apple Teaching Award, the Jefferson Portrait Presentation, and the Lindback Award. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and the Wall Street Journal. Dr. Mangione wrote a series of landmark articles on the decline of basic clinical skills that rekindled interest in the bedside and led to objective assessment during the National Board of Medical Examiners’ test and the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) certification exam. He collaborated with ABIM on research related to physical diagnosis, and he helped to develop a physical examination module for the internal medicine re-certification exam.

Dr. Mangione is the author of Physical Diagnosis Secrets, 2nd Edition and Secrets: Heart and Lung Sounds Audio Workshop, 2nd Edition
