Hey out there!

I just found out about a new website that lists all of the approved doctors and for medical research. It is just getting started. It is for "the collection, sharing and advancement of medical knowledge that, over time, will produce the world's most comprehensive resource."

Thoughts? Just want to know what you think about it! :D

Here is a link:

Hmm, looks like wikipedia written by people with degrees. Could be good, but it is quite small right now.

For medical research stuff like this i usually use:

WebMD
Wikipedia (dodgy but you can get good sources)
eMedicine (written for doctors, the most detailed)
Mayo Clinic
rarediseases.org
Medline

I like your cat pic, by the way Kitty Pryde. Cool name too!

Yeah, I know it is extremely new, but it looks like it might be a good resource some day. And I thought the same thing about Wikipedia when I saw the site URL. It sort of makes me not want to use the site, but what can you tell from a name? Not like you can't tell anything, but I'm just saying.

I'm going to shift this over to the Experts and Story Research forum. Thanks for the website.

I was wondering where this thread went. I'm not very good at the categorizing thing yet. :D
