Medicine Online

Many physicians, health care extenders, and students increasingly use online educational resources. From databases to blogs, the amount of medical information one can access is growing exponentially. Unfortunately, much of this medical information is scattered on numerous websites, each designed for one specific audience only. As a result, physicians are learning and sharing information in isolation from medical trainees, nurses, students, and patients.

a transformation is occurring in science, specifically in the domains of health and medicine. Second generation Web technologies that facilitate interaction between users are changing the way health care professionals communicate with each other, as well as with patients, health consumers and bio- medical researchers.
