Putting Breaking Medical News Into Practice®
Introduction
MedPage Today is the only service for physicians that provides a clinical perspective on the breaking medical news that their patients are reading.

Co-developed by MedPage Today and The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Office of Continuing Medical Education, each article alerts clinicians to breaking medical news, with summaries and actionable information enabling them to better understand the implications.

MedPage Today's mission is to be the leading provider of real-time breaking medical news for health professionals and consumers (each an Expert Patient®). We help each clinician and Expert Patient better understand the news by providing timely and actionable reporting and analysis that puts complex information into context.
