Description

AskDrWiki.com is a Web site designed to provide health information for physicians, nurses, and medical students. The site provides a source of reliable medical information that is easy to access on the Internet. The information published on the site is not meant to supersede medical training but to serve as an online repository of medical review articles for medical professionals.

At AskDrWiki.com, registered providers can publish review articles, clinical notes, pearls, and medical images on the site. AskDrWiki.com users must be credentialed based on their medical training before they are allowed to publish. All new users will be required to submit their medical training, degree, and current hospital or medical school. All credentialed users will be listed on the editorial board and are encouraged to publish their resume or curriculum vitae stating their education, medical training, board certification, and research. This process removes the transparency of anonymous article creation and provides an extra level or credibility.
