Medical Resource Reviews Database

URL:hpdrc.cs.fiu.edu/med.resource
  • Useful analysis for medical professionals
  • No specific scientific interest
I haven't reviewed a medical site here for a while, so I jumped at the chance when I discovered the Medical Resource Reviews Database. Describing its focus is a bit of a challenge, but here goes. First, the target audience is a wide range of medical professionals– M.D.s, dentists, students, nurses, and patients. OK, that includes most of the world. The site's "beat" is also ambitious, with a "database (that) contains summaries and reviews of electronic medical information resources available by any of the following means: browsable www sites, downloadable datasets and software, or on CD–ROMs." Areas of medicine covered run the gamut from urology to infectious diseases to surgery, dentistry, and everything in between as well as beyond, like acupuncture. Numerous search options are available too.
