Overview

Medical Journal Abstracts

The medical journal abstracts section provides healthcare professionals with access to key journal abstracts. Bringing together articles from a full range of sources, this resource aims to provide doctors with a starting point for their journal research.

The regularly updated journals can be sorted by disease/condition, source name and the date of publication. Alternatively they can be accessed within the relevant epgonline.org disease topic areas, via the collapsible menu at the top of each page of the epgonline.org website.
