Focus Medica brings a stimulating and in-depth visual learning experience to students, researchers, and professionals. The authoritative content, innovative animations and accompanying audio will provide a rich ground for study.

Titles included in the agreement are: Animated Medical and Health Dictionary and Animated Dictionary of Cardiology. Together they provide extensive coverage of medical subjects through engaging definitions of medical terms ranging from adenitis to zygon.
