DynaMed has been redesigned!  DynaMed (formerly DynaMed Plus) debuted a sleek new interface this morning.  The new interface provides ongoing access to DynaMed's collection of clinically-focused, evidence-based, routinely updated articles, images, and clinical calculators.

DynaMed's updated interface allows users to search by article or topic and also provides users the ability to browse articles by specialty by accessing the drop down 'Specialties' menu or click on the tiled images on the DynaMed homepage.
The updated interface also provides users the ability to create (or continue) a personal DynaMed account to access additional features including: 

  • Following specific articles.  Users can also specify their 'follow' preferences: practice-changing updates only, all updates, or no email/just display on DynaMed.
  • Earn credits via DynaMed including Maintenance of Certification, AMA, AAFP, and AANP credits.
DynaMed's mobile app will be updated on August 26 and additional information will be available at that time.  To learn more about the updated DynaMed interface, please email Laura Abate ( or view one of the video tutorials:

genetherapyWhat's the state of the art for gene therapy?  It can be challenging to remain abreast of this fast-moving field but a recent review article in the New England Journal of Medicine can help update your knowledge.  In Gene Therapy, Dr. Katherine High and Dr. Maria Roncarolo describe the basic principles of in vivo and ex vivo gene therapy as well as specific therapies in use and in development.  The article also includes an interactive infographic to support learning and teaching as well as an interview with Dr. High.

Explore additional genetics articles by searching Himmelfarb Library‘s PubMed which provides direct links to articles in our online collections or Health Information @ Himmelfarb to locate e-books, print books, and other materials with information on genetics.

To learn more about these issues and other genetics topics, participate in the SMHS’s online Genetics Journal Club.
