Harvard Medical School, Stanford School of Medicine, University of Michigan Medical School, and Berkeley School of Public Health have put their heads together and launched what we might eventually call the ultimate medical wiki called Medpedia.

The Medpedia community seeks to create the most comprehensive and collaborative medical resource in the world. Medpedia will serve as a catalog, database, and learning tool about health, medicine and the body for doctors, scientists, policymakers, students and citizens that will improve medical literacy worldwide.

Associations, medical schools, hospitals, government organizations and research centers are asked to join to this worldwide project and help build the world’s largest and most relevant medical information database. In order to keep the contents accurate and up-to-date, contributors will have to have an M.D. or Ph.D in a biomedical field, and all contributors will have their own profile page with links to their contributions. This will help minimize errors and prevent pseudoscience. The project is in beta at the moment, so it is by invitation only, but if you are eager to contribute, you may ask for a login at the Medpedia website.

Unfortunately, I still have another year to sit out at school until I can contribute, but if you are a diagnostic imaging professional you should sign-up because this is a worthwhile project!

I would like to offer the Hungarian medical student body and the foreign medical student body who are studying in Hungary a new source of information:

medikus.lap.hu

The website has just undergone some major update and now has links to Medicine 2.0, medical blogs, medical communities, etc. Let’s help the editor make this site the most up-to-date in the field of medicine.

I was delighted when I found this great study source today! On the one hand, because it is a rich source of anatomical images, and on the second hand, because it was put together by Hungarian radiologist at the University of Szeged, School of Medicine. It is available both in Hungarian and in English.

It is a website with simple design, but is has good information. You can choose to browse the data by seven categories, or you may test your skills on the “images without labels” section.

Enjoy!

There are tons of images online, but it is a bit more difficult to find good study material for those eying a carrier in diagnostic imaging. LearningRadiology.com is the perfect start! It offers:

  • Lecture notes (in pdf., ppt., flash)
  • Study notes (in pdf., ppt., flash)
  • An image bank
  • Case of the week series
  • Quick quizes
  • Flashcards, and many more

LearningRadiology was started in June of 2002 at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Their concept was to replace traditional handouts by this website, and since this site requires no registration, and is free to the public, it has since become a very popular resource for medical students and imaging professionals alike from all over the world.

The look and feel of the website is great, the information is exceptional, so do not miss out on this unique study source. I hope soon there will be a learningnuclearmedicine.com as well!
