Physician Directory for Mobile Devices

Smartphones

The University of Chicago Medicine now has a medical staff directory for mobile devices. It’s a site specifically created for physician use, which allows searches based on our physicians’ names or area of clinical interest. For each of our physicians, contact information and practice locations are listed. Plus, the site is updated frequently, is fully supported on iPhone, Blackberry and Android devices and includes basic referral instructions.
