Medical Wikis Proliferate

April 24, 2007

A posting on Clinical Cases and Images points to David Rothman’s list of Medical Wikis. I agree that there are enough to annotate and categorize.  Not sure how since they are a wide variety – prehaps to distiguish at least general reference wikis from those which are specific to one disease.

Some of the wikis are oriented toward patients, such as,  wikicancer. I am frustrated when I cannot easily find the sponsor of a  wiki although I realize that there are many contributors, albiet relatively annonymous.

How long before there is a medical wiki aggregator, a master wiki?
