We created our mobile edition because Web-enabled portable devices have become nearly as common among physicians as the stethoscope. One recent study found that more than 80% of physicians use smartphones.

If you are among them, you can access our content -- news articles, columns, tables and charts -- in one well-organized and fast-loading package. And it's free.

Mobile amednews has its own search, where all the results point to the mobile versions of articles. A convenient list of our most popular topics is provided to cut down on the thumb-typing you need to do to find what you want. Articles have the tools you need for easy sharing with your social network. To stay on top of the news, you can subscribe to the RSS feed of your choice for immediate updates, or sign up to receive weekly mobile-optimized email alerts.

The mobile edition is designed for today's needs. Check it out today: link
