Here at HHSL, we’re always looking to expand our collection to provide new books and other materials for your leisure, research, and other informational needs.  For this month’s post, we’ve highlighted some recently acquired titles on the topic of the history of diseases.

Is there something else that you would like to see on our shelves?  Please let us know by recommending a purchase.

 

TUSM students in the Competency-Based Apprenticeship in Primary Care program recently put a suite of selected apps and mobilized websites into a folder on their smartphones.

CAP workshop 2014 Wayne Altman

Course directors Wayne Altman, MD, and Sarah Rosenberg-Scott, MD, introduced Mobile Medicards and discussed the usefulness of their top five tools for information at the point of care.  Librarian Berika Williams created a presentation on how to install apps for DynaMed, STAT!Ref, Epocrates, the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research’s Electronic Preventive Services Selector, and the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine’s SHOTs.

Our CAP Apps & Links Guide gives instructions on how to access these resources and various calculators, drug resources, evidence-based compendia, and textbooks. We trust that these resources will enable our students to share their research with their preceptors and seem brighter than ever.  Contact us if you need an access code or help installing any of our licensed resources on your mobile device.  We look forward to hearing feedback on your favorite apps and mobile links.
