Supporting Physicians at the Point of Care
UpToDate is available to all funded Divisions of Family Practice members, at no cost to the individual physician. Physicians using UpToDate usually find answers to their clinical questions within two to three minutes and report that it saves them one to three hours a week researching treatment options.
