What is 4Abstracts

4Abstracts brings you up to date!

4Abstracts is an e-mail service that provides overviews of abstracts of medical articles.
Nowadays the number of articles published is high and it is hard to keep up with the increase of medical knowledge and innovations. However, we think that everyone in health care should be up to date.A team of young doctors and medical students thought of a way to facilitate this need and they proposed a free e-mail service that provides an overview of the four leading medical journals. 4Abstracts is a free e-mail service that provides a weekly overview of abstracts of original articles, trials and reviews from several scientific journals, divided in several specific specialties of medicine. This way busy clinicians will save time, they will be informed more easily and they may read articles they normally would have missed.

It's easy to do and knowledge is for everyone, so sign up now.
