February 4, 2008
(Philadelphia) -- The American College of Physicians (ACP) has launched a new Web site – www.acponline.org – to provide internal medicine physicians and related subspecialists with easy access to ACP information on clinical topics, practice management tools, continuing medical education, and other useful resources.
ACP’s new Web site also has resources for medical students, residents, fellows, and patients and their families.
"Visitors can access information quickly and easily – whether it is the latest evidence-based clinical guideline, clinically-based quality improvement programs, information about career paths and mentoring, or background information about common health care topics related to internal medicine," said John Tooker, MD, MBA, FACP, ACP’s executive vice president and chief executive officer. "The new design, information architecture, and navigation of the site are intended to make the online experience more efficient and effective for our users."
With ACP’s new Web site, which has more than 25,000 pages of content, visitors can now browse and search ACP’s comprehensive collection of clinical resources such as Annals of Internal Medicine and the Physicians' Information and Education Resource (PIER) in one easy-to-find location, access management tools to help run a practice and improve practice performance, stay up-to-date with continuing medical education from ACP, prepare for certification and re-certification, search for a fellowship, and access information and resources developed specifically for patients needed to understand both their care and the doctor-patient relationship.
The new ACP home page features spotlights on clinical and practice management issues, the latest news from ACP, updates on current advocacy projects, and quick links to new initiatives, services, and products.
The American College of Physicians (www.acponline.org) is the largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest physician group in the United States.
