The Medical Letter Offers Free Subscriptions to 3rd- and 4th-Year Medical Students

NEW ROCHELLE, NY (July 29, 2013) - The Medical Letter is pleased to announce a limited time, free subscription program for 3rd- and 4th-year medical students.

Since 1959, The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics has provided objective, peer-reviewed evaluations of new FDA-approved drugs, and new information on previously approved drugs. Its companion publication – Treatment Guidelines from The Medical Letter – rounds out this information with unbiased reviews of drug classes used to treat common disorders.  Both publications are concise, easy-to-read newsletters, available in print, online and as a mobile app for iPad, iPhone, iTouch, Android and Kindle Fire.  

“We have decided to offer an online subscription to The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics and Treatment Guidelines from The Medical Letter, free to 3rd- and 4th-year students so the next generation of physicians learn that the source of their drug information is as important as the treatment decisions they’ll ultimately be making,” said Mark Abramowicz, MD Editor in Chief.

“More than 250,000 physicians subscribe or have online access to our publications,” he added, “which are totally independent of the pharmaceutical industry. We are supported entirely by subscriptions; we do not accept advertisements, gifts, donations or grants, and we do not sell bulk reprints to the industry. That makes The Medical Letter truly objective and unbiased.”

Third- and 4th-year medical students interested in signing up for a free online account, can go to: or call customer service at 800.211.2769.
