Did you know that you can access the same world-class medical information site that thousands of doctors visit for the latest information on medical advances, prescription drugs, and a whole lot more?
Well, you can. It’s called Medscape, and its completely free for everyone, not just doctors, nurses and other medical professionals.
Medscape is an expansive, one-stop repository for virtually any kind of medical information you can think of.
You’ll find all of this on the site, and more:
- Up-to-the-minute news about the latest drugs, research study results and medical advances across the entire spectrum of the health and wellness field
- A comprehensive database of information on prescription drugs.
- Incredibly detailed information about specific diseases and ailments. (Select a topic in the left-hand column and drill down to the disease/ailment you’re interested in learning about.)
- Over 1,000 Continuing Medical Education courses to fulfill professional development and licensure requirements.
- Much, much more.
As you can see, Medscape is probably the only resource you’ll ever need for keeping yourself up to date on everything that’s happening in the world of medicine. In fact, it’s the largest and most comprehensive medical information site on the web, as well as the site that most medical professionals rely on. But you don’t have to be a medical professional to use it.
If you primarily access the Internet with a mobile device, you can download the free Medscape app for your smart phone or tablet. Click here for iOS or here for Android.
Important: The folks at Medscape point out that all information presented on their website is for informational purposes only. They recommend that you always consult with your doctor concerning any medical issues which might arise.
