Equip tomorrow’s clinicians with the clinical decision support solution that reflects modern medicine in action

Medical, nursing, physician assistant, and pharmacy schools must teach students evidence-based practice and provide faculty with access to the latest evidence as it’s applied to clinical practice. Academic institutions must align future clinicians' knowledge and skills to what’s happening in the care settings in which they’ll practice. Teaching must align with what students will encounter and reflect the decision support resources that will likely be available to them.

UpToDate is an invaluable resource for educating future clinicians. Why? Because UpToDate is unique. We combine the latest clinical evidence with expert insights from physicians who are world-renowned leaders in their field. UpToDate reflects how real-world medicine is practiced today. Since UpToDate is so widely used in hospitals and clinics, it’s essential that students are exposed to it as they begin their journey as life-long learners.

Preferred CDS solution by physicians and residents

In a large-scale, 118-hospital study, UpToDate was the most-used CDS solution by physicians and residents, used significantly more than any other resource.2

UpToDate has an important role in medical education

A study of internal medicine residents at the Mayo Clinic3 examined the impact of learning habits, including the use of UpToDate, on medical knowledge acquisition as measured by the Internal Medicine In-training Examination (IM-ITE). The study concluded that use of UpToDate was a predictor of performance and had associations with knowledge acquisition that were comparable to the benefit of a year in residency training.

Our editorial rigor facilitates comprehensive learning

As the only clinical decision support solution of its kind proven to be associated with improved outcomes, such as fewer diagnostic errors, lower mortality rates, shorter lengths of hospital stay, and improved quality, UpToDate provides trusted, authoritative clinical decision support that medical students can use as they prepare to make diagnosis and treatment decisions upon entering practice and throughout their careers.

More than 7,300 clinicians from 50 countries, all of whom are leading experts in their fields, serve as UpToDate authors and editors.
