We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high quality expert medical and scientific research information, journal references, physician referral, and continuing medical education. This site has been around since 1994 and is the first of its kind since the web-based inception of the internet. It is run entirely by MD.'s and seeks to provide a special perspective for those who cannot find it elsewhere. Please feel free to browse our links.
At Med-Line, we are keenly aware that medical access is unfortunately not available for everyone.
We also realize that often patients have a difficult time finding
the right doctor for their particular problems. Not all doctors are the same. We believe that
medical access is a right and therefore are here to help provide
patients with rapid access to the world's most qualified physicians
and specialists. Please search our medline listings for physicians in your
area with the expertise that you are in need.
If you are a physician, resident, or medical student, please sign
up and feel free to use our services. We want to help you get the
most out of being a quality, caring, efficient care-provider. If you
are looking to communicate with other physicians, seeking a
residency or new career placement, or need confidential access to
medical contacts or information, we are here to help you. Please
browse our listings.
We are currently hiring paid staff and volunteers who can assist in our mission. We offer an unrestricted opportunity for creativity and voice to our world-wide medical community. Unlike other sites, this is a professional site catering exclusively to health professionals and their patients. We are the largest name in the world for medical education and health resources.
