Scientific publisher Wiley and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, N.Y., have teamed up to create a series of electronic 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. In the guide, experts at the Icahn school help users understand advances in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of liver diseases that have emerged as a distinct area of study that is no longer tied to gastroenterology.

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.

"Now, more than ever, high quality patient care relies on the ability to obtain accurate and practical information as quickly as possible," series editor Scott Friedman, M.D., says. "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."
