I know most of you are familiar with that website, but I found it trough usmleworld Q-bank (the best Q-bank for USMLE), when I was reading a question with the current clinical guidelines for hypertension. It is a government website and it is full with information for patients, health professionals and researchers. I personally like the section with the interactive tools and resources. They offer free applications for Palm OS and Pocket PC devices, health assessment tools, slide shows, and many others related to NHLBI Websites/Educational Tutorials. Both NHLBI and JAMA are mandatory for every health professional who wants to keep him/herself up to dated and current.


You are always very welcome to send me the urls of websites and blogs you like and I will try to do my best to present all of them on USMLEMD. New editors are welcome too. If you want to write a post, don’t hesitate and send me an email (the email is in the about section) or contact me trough the comments.

    You have been in the “blogging business” longer than me. Are you finding it worth the time and effort you are dedicating to it? Are you satisfied with your blog’s number of visitors and commentators? Do you sometimes have that feeling that you are talking to the air not to a real audience (I have that feeling sometimes)?

    I had an idea a while ago to try and make a circle ( or at least a bond ) between medical student bloggers. To make our voice louder and reach out to a bigger audience by starting carnivals, medical student circles, lists of medical blogs and comments on each, huge medical student blogrolls, etc. But i’m always afraid of failure. There are hundreds of medical student blogs out there but they are hidden far away in the Internet space where it is relatively hard to find them. What are your thoughts? Are you interested?

    Yes, I am interested. I was thinking about blog carnival too. The problem is that, it is so time consuming. I can’t find enough time to do it. Send me a detailed email with your ideas and we can discuss them.

    About your feeling that you are talking to the air. Yes, of course, I have this feeling everyday, but with the medical stuff is always like that. Not that many people wants to listen about diseases. See, Britney Spears is a different story. Google, Microsoft, Logitech, some tech hacks, this is what is hot. And think about that 75% of the Internet traffic is related to erotic, porn and sex websites. So, blogging about medicine and USMLE is not the hottest thing on the Internet, and even the few readers we have, should make us happy.

    Here is my humble first step:

    What do you think? Any suggestions? If you don’t mind, what is your academic status? I assumed you were a student or a resident cuz you talked about USMLE but you sound older than that 😉

    Yes, I am older…:)

    I knew you were 😉

    I wrote an other post (Medical Student Blogger Interview) … let’s see how that goes. I submitted it to this week’s Grand Round at Scienceoll and he approved it! (I didn’t think he would).

    So, that’s Medical student blogroll and Medical student blogger interview … do you have any other ideas?
