Laughing Your Way To Passing The Boards Launches New Site To Take The Boredom Out Of Board Review

STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the past 13 years Pediatricians and other specialists have been Laughing Their Way to Passing the boards and can now enjoy more than just a book series.

Medhumor Medical Publications, LLC founded by Dr. Stuart Silverstein, who in addition to being a pediatrician was a nationally known standup comedian, launched the series in 2000 after he realized there must be a more fun and exciting way to Take The Boredom Out Of Board Review®.

"Everyone remembers the college and medical school professors who were funny and made otherwise boring and daunting subject matter come alive" remarked Silverstein, adding, "it was not only easier to remember their material but it was impossible to forget, and this was our goal from the start."

Over the years the "Laughing your way to passing the Pediatric Boards" series  has become top of the list of recommended pediatric board review books. Since then the titles have expanded to include books for medical students preparing for their USMLE exams, Neurology Residents preparing for the neurology boards and even a question answer book for neonatal fellows sitting for the Neonatology Boards, a sub-specialty of pediatrics.

Brian Cahn, our Vice President with a background in the medical sciences has spearheaded the content development of the new Website under the brand new URL http://www.laughingyourway.com noted "in today's market being a book publishing company is not enough, we knew that we had to provide a forum and platform where we can provide information in real time for our readers," Mr. Cahn added "The pediatric recertification process has changed dramatically over the past 5 years, requiring Pediatricians and other specialists to go through a confusing Maintenance of Certification or "MOC process," and we needed a robust active platform to provide this to our readers many of whom used our books to become board certified and are turning to us for the recertification process."

The new website has additional cutting edge features including: board review blog, integration with social media such as Twitter® and Facebook®, ways to access and sample board review books, and access free board review questions and answers. Medhumor Publications is currently working on an improved discussion forum as well as downloadable material, crucial for physicians preparing for their specialty board exams.

The new website is aimed at building an active real time network between their readers and the staff of Medhumor Medical Publications while providing links to relevant articles and resources.
