* Symptoms

* Surgery
* Nutrition
* Special Topics
* Poison
* Tests
* YouTube Videos

There is also an easy-to-use search feature on the app home page; just type in any keyword or search phrase and the search will return all related content.

This content is updated regularly, and the date it was last reviewed is at the bottom of each article, along with the reviewer’s name and credentials and all references. Articles also contain links to related content and medical illustrations with text that help to increase understanding visually.

The Power of UMMC

Most medical reference content also includes prominent links to clinical content on the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) site, which is the most popular hospital Web site in terms of traffic in the United States.

These links include access to our unique Ask the Expert feature, which allows you to ask questions to more than 70 different UMMC doctors on a wide variety of topics. Our experts received more than 7,000 questions last year, and this feature has consistently been ranked No. 1 by UMMC Web site visitors when asked what they most liked about the site.

The medical reference also offers a rich archive of topic-specific videos, which are another of UMMC’s most popular site features. These videos include doctor interviews, doctor profiles, patient success stories and many more, and are all on UMMC’s YouTube Channel. Check these out by going to the app home page and clicking on YouTube Videos.
