A lot of innovation can happen in 100 years, and that’s just what Elsevier’s Medical Clinics has chronicled. But what about the next hundred years?
As it has for a century, Medical Clinics provides the latest clinical reviews on issues physicians face every day, presenting in-depth insights on a specific topic with contributions from leading experts. Topics span the entire spectrum of internal medicine, including endocrinology, cardiology, infectious disease, nephrology, pulmonology and gastroenterology.
To mark the Medical Clinics’ centennial, Elsevier has planned a yearlong celebration that looks back on the history of Medical Clinics and the medical breakthroughs that dramatically advanced healthcare across the world over the past 100 years.
“Medical Clinics has included information and insights on some of the most significant advances in medicine,” said Dr. Peter Edelstein, Chief Medical Officer for Elsevier Clinical Solutions. “We want to share this great milestone with the past, present and future clinicians, researchers, librarians, editors and authors who have helped make this series such a valued piece of medical publishing history.”
The celebration is based at medicalclinics100.com, where site visitors will be able to:
- Interact with a timeline of key medical milestones from the past 100 years and view the Medical Clinics articles that reported on these breakthrough discoveries
