Decker Intellectual Properties is partnered with Scientific American to provide quick and accurate clinical information, with databases in a variety of medical disciplines.
The rate of increase of medical knowledge places an enormous burden on physicians to keep up with recent advances, particularly in innovative therapies that will improve patient outcomes. Decker’s Scientific American products deliver content in an easily accessible format of current information that covers a practical clinical approach to the diagnosis, examination and treatment of common medical conditions that physicians face regularly. The burden of information overload today makes this initiative to join innovative technology with an ever-increasing demand of quick, accurate clinical information a necessity, and Decker’s products satisfy that unfulfilled need.
These Scientific American products fill a unique role in medical education by providing reliable, up to date and innovative content for medical learners from MS3 clerks to PGY1-5 residents to practitioners needing CME and MOC.
