Oxford's medical publishing is trusted and loved for its authority and reliability by doctors all over the world. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is a must-have, and our Oxford Specialty Training programme of textbooks, revision guides and self-testing resources has become a staple of the junior doctor's arsenal.
We have now launched PASSit, focussing the excellence and quality found in all our publishing into an online service, which we believe is the closest thing to the exam that candidates can experience. PASSit matches the structure, coverage, and question types in the exams. On launch there are exam revision modules in medicine, surgery, radiology, psychiatry, and anaesthesia, with further modules scheduled for late 2012.
We have taken a rigorous approach to the quality of the questions and answers, with three levels of review, so candidates can be assured they are using the best material:
- Questions are written by experts in their fields
- Each question is reviewed by a specialty medical team, which includes previous examiners
- Each module is overseen by an editorial board to ensure the highest quality
There are also invaluable links to further reading. Each source for further reading has been selected because it is the best online medical content available. This includes Oxford's own medical publishing, as well as that of other publishers.
Catherine Barnes, Editorial Director for Global Medical Books at OUP, commented:
'We are really pleased to be launching PASSit for the medical community. We recognize that preparing for and doing well on postgraduate medical exams is a major hurdle, so we want to make it as easy as possible for them to pass first time. We hope that by offering flexible revision tools, easy-to-use functionality, and intuitive site design and navigation, PASSit will provide the perfect revision environment.'
PASSit has been designed to help candidates pass their exams first time. It is part of a suite of online resources from Oxford, including the Oxford Medicine Online platform for clinical content, and the world-renowned Oxford Scholarship Online platform for research materials.
