The National Library of Medicine (NLM) announces the release of about 1,800 new high quality images of solid oral dosage medications. Images were taken at high resolution, but are also available in smaller sizes if desired for certain applications.
The Society was founded in 1967 to respond to the needs of family medicine educators. These teachers include medical school professors, preceptors, residency program faculty, residency program directors and all involved in family medicine education.
The book spans the full scope of ambulatory medicine, and is organized according to the flow of patient care--starting with insights into signs and symptoms, followed by expert disease management recommendations.
