Started in 1989 by Dr. Burton D. Rose along with Dr. Joseph Rush, UpToDate is now available in most internal medicine subspecialties as well as adult primary care, Family Medicine, ob-gyn and paediatrics. The rest of internal medicine is in development. With tens of thousands of subscribers in more than 100 countries, we serve the needs of clinicians around the world.
We do this by producing an educational product, UpToDatewhicht offers the most practical, most current, most authoritative, and most easily accessible information available on a clinical topic. We seek to integrate the best evidence with the best experience to provide practical and detailed recommendations that clinicians can use and trust.
UpToDate is a cooperative effort of thousands of expert clinicians at leading academic centers and is an official educational program of, or offered in cooperation with a number of major medical associations. These include: the American Academy of Paediatrics, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the American College of Rheumatology, the American Gastroenterological Association, the American Society of Nephrology, The Endocrine Society, the Society of General Internal Medicine, and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. UpToDate is also recommended by the American Academy of Family Physicians. The editorial board for each subspecialty is comprised of the most eminent physicians in the field. UpToDate is from physicians for physicians.
