NYU Langone Medical Center, one of the nation's premier academic medical centers, announced today the magazine of NYU School of Medicine, NYU Physician, is now available as a free iPad app in the iTunes App Store.
NYU Physician, published three times a year, provides news and insights about important advances in biomedical research and innovations in health care. Each issue features a trio of in-depth articles focused on specific topics, from how aging "baby boomers" are changing the face of orthopaedic care to how the genome is shaping the diagnosis and treatment of diseases including cancer and rheumatoid arthritis to the key role the five senses play in our daily lives.
