Date:3/16/2011

NEW YORK and CLEVELAND, March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- McGraw-Hill Professional, a leading global provider of information resources for the scientific and medical communities, and Simbionix™, the world's leading provider of medical education and simulation technology, have partnered to bring surgical education content from McGraw-Hill Professional's online surgical training resource AccessSurgery™ (www.accesssurgery.com) to users of Simbionix's MentorLearn system.  This new collaboration will integrate visual and clinical training content from AccessSurgery into Simbionix MentorLearn to enhance simulation-based training and support surgical innovation and practice.

"Extending our content and innovative curricular tools to a leading line of surgical simulators is a natural extension of AccessSurgery's mission," says Scott Grillo, vice president and publisher of medical publishing at McGraw-Hill Professional. "Together with Simbionix, we can enhance our existing learning tools for surgical residents and medical students."
