Netter Products Expand Offerings to Include Interactive Online and Mobile Technologies

Medicine’s most well known anatomy products offer students and medical professionals online and mobile tools to aid learning and review

Philadelphia, PA – July 21, 2010 – Netter Products, which are based on medicine’s most well known and comprehensive collection of hand-painted anatomy illustrations by Frank Netter, M.D, have evolved into sophisticated digital tools that aid students and clinicians in learning and reviewing concepts in basic sciences and clinical medicine. The full line of Netter Products are published by Elsevier, the world’s leading publisher of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services.

“It is imperative that medical students self-direct their learning experience through interactive and innovative tools,” said Randy Charles, Managing Director, Global Clinical Reference for Elsevier. “With limited lab time, the necessity to cover a lot of information in a short amount of time, a lack of faculty and an inadequate amount of cadavers, medical school students will find significant benefits in products that offer convenience, quality and superior information.”

Continued Industry Leader in Medical Education
Even with the adoption of electronic and digital tools, students and clinicians still find paper resources valuable. Students can continue their self-directed learning with products from the Netter line including:
