Our books provide that system so the material is not only easier to remember, but impossible to forget !

Stuart C Silverstein, CEO

Stu Silverstein, MD, FAAP is the founder and CEO of Medhumor Medical Publications, LLC located in Stamford ,CT. The concept of the "Laughing Your Way to Passing the Pediatric Boards®" began in the Spring of 2000. Dr. Silverstein was searching for a Board Review Study Guide that simply broke down the material into chunks that made it easy to filter out material that was low yield. There were no books on the market.

Given Dr. Silverstein’s experience as a Standup Comedian, and Comedy writer, he formulated the First Edition of our flagship title and it was an instant hit. Since then this formula has been applied to all of the books in the "Laughing Your Way to Passing the Boards ®" series that now includes books in Neurology as well as Neonatology - Perinatology.  The "Surfing Your Way to Pediatric Recertification" uses a similar approach to Pediatricians going through the Maintenance of Certification ( MOC) and new MOCA - Pediatrics Process.

Dr. Silverstein’s work has been featured on ABC World News Tonight,  the New York Times, CBC news radio and national radio and TV programs. Dr. Silverstein is a regular on air voice for News 12 Connecticut discussing topics related to Children and Pediatrics.
