Medicine, in collaboration with BroadcastMed,
Inc. has launched MD Learning Channel, an online resource that
enables medical professionals worldwide to tap into the knowledge and
expertise of University
of Alabama at Birmingham physicians.
The website at learnmd.uabmedicine.org
offers free Web-based learning and continuing medical education for
physicians and other medical professionals. It includes video
presentations from UAB physicians discussing new research findings, new
procedures and changes and developments in diagnosis or treatment of
disease. The site primarily focuses on cancer, neurosciences, pulmonary
medicine, women and infants services and cardiovascular medicine and
will expand to include additional medical specialties in the future.
"UAB physicians and scientists are at the forefront of medicine,
scientific research and discovery and advancement of treatments and
patient-focused care," said Physician Marketing Manager Whitney
McDonald. "This site provides an easy, convenient way for UAB to help
disseminate its incredible wealth of expertise to medical professionals
around the world."
McDonald says the site's on-demand service enables physicians and
medical professionals to learn as their schedule permits.
"By making the information readily available, we hope to further the
mission, vision and successes of the UAB Medicine team, while sharing
techniques, procedures and evidence-based care in use here to help
others care for their patients," said McDonald. "We hope that the MD
Learning Channel will serve as a platform to foster many growth and
development opportunities for health-care providers."
Known for its innovative and interdisciplinary approach to education at
both the graduate and undergraduate levels, the University of Alabama at
Birmingham is the state of Alabama's largest employer and an
internationally renowned research university and academic health center;
