has launched a new feature with the addition of Clinical Prep
. What Clinical Prep does is help to bridge the gap between course work and
actual patient care experiences by providing access to common clinical questions.
"Clinical Prep offers more than 650 core topics essential for medical students. Within these 650+ core topics, students will find
over 50,000 questions."
The questions and answer choices are written; as well as reviewed, and updated; several times a month by specialists who work in clinical settings.
Clinical Prep supports learning in four key ways:
- It provides a warm up for your brain before setting out on clinical rotations.
- It helps students become familiar with clinical workflow and issues surrounding each disease.
- Its topics and questions serve as a point-of-care tool in the wards.
- Clinical Prep’s specialty/topic lists align with the USMLE Step 2 content outline and are the same topics as those found in "First Aid for the USMLE Step 2 CK". Which means that diseases included in this feature are likely to appear on the Step 2!

Atlas of Human Malformation Syndromes in Diverse Populations
An international group of clinical geneticists have created an online atlas of human malformation syndromes in diverse populations to assist clinicians with diagnosing syndromic disorders. The website will include photographs and the molecular diagnoses of individuals from geographically diverse locations around the globe. Previously, the only available diagnostic atlas featured photos of patients with northern European ancestry, which often does not represent the characteristics of these diseases in patients from other parts of the world.
"Birth defects remain a leading cause of infant mortality and childhood morbidity throughout the world. An accurate and early syndromic diagnosis is paramount, as late diagnosis can result in a delay in intervention and treatment of accompanying anomalies such as congenital heart defects or endocrine disorders."
Most major malformations are non-specific to a particular syndrome, thus this web site will attempt to show the pattern of malformations that are consistent with a syndrome. The authors foresee this new online tool being used extensively by physicians, genetic counselors, and trainees throughout the world.
