Continued education in medicine is essential to
integrating librarians more fully into medical teams and improving
their understanding of the medical literature and the ways it applies
to individual patient cases. The purpose of this course is to provide
librarians with practical medical knowledge, focusing on information
relevant to case histories, laboratory data, and medical team discussions.
Understanding medical concepts improves the librarian's abilities
to communicate with physicians and patients, to read and understand
the medical literature, and to relate clinical concepts in constructing
a literature search.
