The revolution in information technology has introduced and spread the use of the Internet and the World Wide Web, having huge impact on almost every aspect of human life and activity. Medical education has not been an exception to this change.
The Alfa Institute of Biomedical Sciences (AIBS) has created a medical education portal providing a selection of open access resources filtered to meet the highest scientific standard. The web portal www.e-meducation.org provides free high quality educational material in several medical fields, including internal medicine, infectious diseases, dermatology, nosocomial infections, antimicrobial resistance, Hepatitis B virus, general surgery and surgical infections. Our educational site also includes clinical quizzes, videos, photo banks, and teaching cases.
Given the importance of instructive medical cases in problem based learning and the opportunities that are provided by the modern advances in technology, we sought to compile a list of specific Internet links of scientific World Wide Web sites that include medical cases with educational value in various fields of medicine. The World Wide Web can serve in opening the door to a brand new world of medical information, often built up by worldwide experts, and referring to most fields of medicine.
Another feature of the www.e-meducation.org is the custom-built medical search engine that permits to track medical information, without having to filter for hours. We provide a powerful medical search engine that boosts Internet performance and minimize waste of time. The custom search engine generates results from professional oriented sites for healthcare providers, leaving outside commercial pages. It is a highly specialized Custom Search Engine that reflects medical knowledge and interests.
Finally, you can read in www.e-meducation.org, RSS news feeds selected from major medical journals and organizations. RSS can save you time you never had, by bringing to your desktop lists of new headlines from your favorite medical resources, with abstracts and links to the full articles should you require.
