Wiley Partners with Mount Sinai Experts to Launch Medical Handbooks

Wiley has teamed up with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, one of the world's leading medical institutions, to create a series of expert guides for medical trainees, research fellows and practicing physicians. The six Mount Sinai Expert Guides combine the expertise of the medical faculty with new online platforms and mobile apps, creating accessible and portable guides tailored for the new generation of physicians.

The first title in the series Mount Sinai Expert Guides: Hepatology publishes this month. This rapid-reference guide to the diagnosis and clinical management of liver disease is edited by Jawad Ahmad, MD, Scott Friedman, MD, and Henryk Dancygier, MD.

“Now, more than ever, high quality patient care relies on the ability to obtain accurate and practical information as quickly as possible,” said Dr. Friedman, who is also the Series Editor. “The Mount Sinai Expert Guides meet this need by delivering accurate, up-to-date, expert guidance using formats that are easily accessible on the front lines of medical care.”

The experts guide users through the profound advances in understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of liver diseases that have established this discipline as a distinct area of study, no longer tied to gastroenterology.

Based in New York City, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is internationally recognized for its groundbreaking research. The school, first founded in 1963, is ranked 19th out of 126 medical schools across the United States by U.S. News & World Report.

The debut guide will be followed by Mount Sinai Expert Guides: Gastroenterology in December 2014. Four more guides to psychiatry, allergy and immunology, cardiology, and neurology will publish throughout 2015.

Each title is supported by online material, including video clips, case studies, interactive Multiple Choice Questions, and patient advice. A mobile app for each guide is also available for purchase, giving users rapid access to key features regardless of location.
