A Cardiology Website to Bookmark

Whether you're a medical student, resident, fellow, or staff cardiologist, once in a while you need a simple, succinct reference for a talk on the basics of cardiovascular disease. Who knew it would come from a radiologist: was conceived, designed, developed, is published, managed and maintained and its content is produced in its entirety by William Herring, MD, FACR. Dr. Herring is the Vice-Chairman and Radiology Residency Program Director at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he has been the Radiology Residency Program Director for over 25 years.

All material on the site, except for the Faculty lectures by other members of the staff at Einstein, was produced by Dr. Herring. Started in June of 2002, the site was originally intended to replace the handout notes that accompanied lectures for the residents and medical students at Albert Einstein Medical Center. It now contains over 20,000 pages of content, and has grown in popularity so that currently over 9 thousand unique visitors access the site every day. Visitors access over 20 million pages of content every year.

The site has been, and continues to be, free to use. It requires no registration, no sign-in, no fee and is commercial-free.
Kudos to Dr. Herring.
