Customizable Curriculum and Multimedia Appeal to Both Students and Professionals Seeking Certification
NEW YORK, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- McGraw-Hill Professional, a leading global provider of information resources for the scientific and medical communities, has launched AccessAnesthesiology (http://www.accessanesthesiology.com), the first online resource dedicated solely to pain management, critical care, and perioperative medicine. This innovative learning website gives anesthesiology residents a suite of detailed reference materials and multimedia, educators a powerful tool for managing workflows, and professionals an in-depth resource for maintaining certification.
Continuing the innovations begun with McGraw-Hill's renowned Access online medical and scientific resources, AccessAnesthesiology provides searchable, full-text versions of leading McGraw-Hill references, including David Longnecker's Anesthesiology, G. Edward Morgan, Jr.'s Lange Clinical Anesthesiology, and Admir Hadzic's NYSORA Textbook of Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management. In addition, the site features all-new and exclusive procedural videos, with a basic skills series from the authors of Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway, and ultrasound videos prepared by members of AccessAnesthesiology's pre-eminent editorial board.
The site also includes the Custom Curriculum, a cutting-edge functionality that enables anesthesiology program directors to create and assign activities, as well as track and monitor resident progress. With the Custom Curriculum, anesthesiology programs map AccessAnesthesiology content and functionalities to their own educational structure, creating a site that matches their specific needs.
For program directors, AccessAnesthesiology represents a significant step forward in curriculum development and design, offering detailed assignment monitoring, student assessment tests and tools, and robust reports, as well as an ability to share assignment designs with other programs. For residents, the Custom Curriculum provides a powerful educational tool, allowing them to view the available activities from their program director and monitor their own individual progress.
"AccessAnesthesiology builds on the strengths of McGraw-Hill's expanding suite of online educational resources," says Scott Grillo, vice president and medical publisher, McGraw-Hill Professional. "By combining leading references, videos, and self-assessment with our powerful Custom Curriculum platform, AccessAnesthesiology gives practicing clinicians the content they require while providing residency programs with the power to customize for their educational needs."
