Annals of Internal Medicine Adds New Editorial Section
“In the Clinic” provides in-depth practice information about a single disease or condition
PHILADELPHIA, December 14, 2006 – The January 2, 2007, issue of Annals of Internal Medicine marks the premier of a new editorial section titled “In the Clinic.” Drawing on the American College of Physicians’ vast educational resources such as the Physicians' Information and Education Resource (PIER) and the Medical Knowledge Self-Assessment Program (MKSAP), “In the Clinic” provides in-depth practice information about a single disease or condition.
“’In the Clinic’ offers physicians in-depth, evidence-based, up-to-date coverage of a single important topic for internal medicine practice,” said Harold Sox, MD, MACP, editor of Annals of Internal Medicine. “Physicians can rely on ‘In the Clinic’ because it comes from internal medicine's most trusted source.”
Diabetes is the first “In the Clinic” topic. Other topics planned for 2007 include smoking cessation, asthma, allergic rhinitis, peripheral arterial disease, heart failure, irritable bowel syndrome, dyslipidemia, headache, influenza, depression, and osteoarthritis.
“In the Clinic” will run monthly in Annals of Internal Medicine’s first issue of the month and offers physicians the opportunity for free CME.
