The American Medical Association has redesigned its Web site to make it easier for physicians, residents and medical students to find resources and other professional tools on the Internet.

“Physicians rely on the Internet to find accurate professional information when they need it,” said AMA President Nancy Nielsen, in a written statement. “The new AMA Web site presents a wealth of valuable information designed with physicians’ needs in mind.”

The new AMA Web site will offer easy-to-find clinical references and continuing medical education, in addition to tools to help physicians manage their practices. AMA messages and news pages will be updated daily, according to the association.

Physicians for example will be able to find resources on billing and reimbursement resources, patient education and clinical practice standards. Medical residents can research tips on handling medical school education debt whereas medical students will be able to access information on financial aid, choosing a medical specialty and understanding medical ethics.

Visitors can search content either by professional status or subject matter.
