Topics In Healthcare - A Comprehensive Look
I need your help collecting links for SDN.
SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
Since it seems a lot of questions for discussion fall into the realm of this "topic of healthcare" forum. I would like to make a comprehensive sticky with links to various sites on the internet. I would like to update our site for those who might be looking for information on a particular topic for interviews or just curious by nature. This way they can just go through and find what might help them.
I'd like your help in submitting links and topics on this subject matter as the internet is a vast resource and I'm sure some of you have great information that you'd like to share.
Some topics to include:
General Healthcare information sites
General Health News Sites
Socialized Medicine, different payor systems
healthcare provider News
Specific ongoing issues are welcome as well
I'd also like to expand to have pertinent information for all SDN users (dental, optho, pharm, etc).
Now we're cooking with peanut oil INDEED. That's what I call boom boom boom!

How does insurance work?
Kaiser just created this GREAT SITE to keep the average consumer and medical folk educated on topics! I highly suggest it for premeds researching the "news" to keep up on topics. They also have weekly emails you can subscribe to in order to keep you informed.
American Medical News - AMA affliate
Journal of American Medical Association
National Library of Medicine and its news resource (with NIH) - (GREAT RESOURCE )
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Kaiser Family Foundation
Medscape - part of WebMD
Centers for Disease Control
CNN - Health
Health Care Policy
Council on Health Care Economics and Policy
LSE Health and Social Care ( London School of Economics)
Ethics in Medicine - Univ of Washington -
Article on Moral Hazard
Community of Science (research resource)
and its related services - such as Medline (The world's most comprehensive source of life sciences and biomedical bibliographic information, with nearly eleven million records. )
Healthfinder - your guide to reliable health information (more for consumers)
courtesy of japhy here are a few health care related blogs worth checking out.

Here are some good webinar resources for those that want to learn more about health care services.
There are 2 new webinars on February 12, 2008.

These are just a couple of the resources that McKesson can provide for health care professionals and students.

Hi, I found this great site when I was studying for a pulmonology exam. It makes ABGs make sense! http://www.altitude.org/calculators/ABGcalculator.htm
There's also a load of great interactive stuff about high altitude medicine, but I don't think that is of quite as much general interest.

I am an alumni of CFHI, an NGO that places health science students in health care programs around the world. For anyone interested in learning about health care and themselves, the programs that CFHI offers are truely life-changing!
