Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2013 -- The medical profession requires an extremely demanding course of education before students can be admitted to practice. This is only to be expected considering the complexity of the subject and the consequences of malpractice. In the course of this education, medical students will be required to purchase a vast amount of literature in the form of textbooks and reference books relevant to their studies.
One medical textbook related website that is getting a lot of attention recently is MedicalTextbook.com, a medical textbook price comparison website. It has built up a substantial reputation for helping medical students pay the lowest price possible for their course texts.
The site is extremely easy to use. Visitors can search by author, title, field of study or ISBN number. They can also browse through textbooks by the medical field. The site automatically combs the web for the cheapest price for that particular textbook, and presents the site visitor with a link to the site so they can purchase it immediately.
In addition to the textbook price comparison engine, the site also contains a list of all the medical schools in the United States with useful information on each educational establishment.
A spokesperson for the site said: “Being a medical student is extremely demanding, not just in terms of workload and difficulty, but also financially. As students are required to study for many more years than it takes to enter most professions, it can represent a vast financial burden. One of the most substantial costs is the sheer number of textbooks that a medical student is required to purchase. Most students will find themselves purchasing hundreds of books throughout the course of their education, and many of these textbooks have relatively low print runs and are therefore particularly expensive. This is a necessary part of qualifying as a medical professional, but we set up MedicalTextbook to try and reduce the burden of textbook costs by helping students pay as little as possible for their textbooks. We’ve been in operation for over five years now, and during that time we’ve helped medical students save a huge amount of money on their textbooks.”
MedicalTextbook.com is an online price comparison engine specifically geared towards medical textbooks. It compares the prices of textbooks across a huge number of online retailers to present the very lowest price to site visitors.
