The vital role that audiologists and speech-language pathologists hold in facilitating human interaction through communication means that students and faculty alike deserve access to high-quality, comprehensive resources. MedOne ComSci offers the means to elevate communication science with up-to-date text, cutting-edge content, and detailed images, videos, and audio.
This unique collection of online content includes e-books with core texts for Masters and PhD level instruction. Thieme’s titles are widely adopted by professors at ASHA-accredited programs. The platform features a rich source of case material for study and discussion in class, with associated question and answer sets provided for every case.
MedOne ComSci is an electronic resource for undergraduate and graduate students in communication science, speech pathology, and audiology as well as professionals practicing in those disciplines. Content is accessible by a simple but powerful searching tool, or simply by browsing.
Every student learns differently. With that in mind, versatile e-books let readers toggle between full-screen, PDF, and in-browser modes. Because well-read students reflect positively on their departments, licenses include unlimited simultaneous use of the regularly updated library. Plus, all the e-books are interactive: readers can make notes, watch videos, download chapters, or even click related links.
When it comes to applying information in a clinical setting, cases are invaluable for transitioning knowledge into practice. Each real case walks readers through history, testing, questions, diagnosis, treatment, and reading, so students can learn to handle patients. Online-first cases mean instructors can teach the most contemporary information without a delay between the screen and the real world.
The e-journal page collects full articles from Thieme’s audiology and speech language pathology journals and suggests hits from the PubMed database, so students and instructors can browse hot topics in audiology and speech-language pathology, use articles to research paper topics, or delve into the archives for in-depth reading. For continuing learners and self-guided studiers, all the journals on MedOne ComSci offer CEUs.
Chapters, cases, and articles can be curated into playlists to make prepping convenient. Users can group any content on MedOne ComSci, plus online materials or personal documents, by topic, course, or category. Students can make private study guides, instructors can share lessons within their institution, and anyone can make their collection public.
The databank of images, videos, and audio clips on MedOne ComSci lets students and instructors expand their access to quality resources. Before a lecture or presentation, users can search for images, download one or more at a time, and create course materials complete with legends and sources. For at-home studying or in-class examples, users can compare audiometric testing or listen to verbal drills.
Users can download and read offline e-books, journal articles, and watch videos on the go. It is designed to make browsing, accessing, and reading MedOne content simple and easy.
Users are no longer confined to the building with MedOne@Home offsite access. They can set up an individual username within their department’s license, so all they need is internet access to view content, create notes, and highlight text.
