MedPedia – Wikipedia für Kranke


Vor kurzem wurde die „World’s Largest Collaborative Online Encyclopedia of Medicine And Health“ unter dem Namen MedPedia angekündigt.

Interessant sind die Beteiligten: Hier findet sich die Creme der Medizinfakultäten der USA: Harvard Medical School, Stanford School of Medicine, University of California Berkeley School of Public Health, University of Michigan Medical School und Dutzende anderer Gesundheitsorganisationen weltweit wie die NIH, CDC, FDA, ACP und viele andere mehr.

Over the next few years, the growing community of Editors on Medpedia will create and interlink Web pages for the more than 30,000 known diseases and conditions, the more than 10,000 drugs being prescribed each year, the thousands of medical procedures being performed and the millions of medical facilities around the world. While the contents of Medpedia will be Open Access, editing privileges will be limited to those with an M.D. or biomedical Ph.D. who apply to become an editor.
