There is no shortage of online medical and health information to help keep us informed on current events, politics, clinical practice, business, and computing matters. A wealth of resources contributes to this abundance: major media coverage; press releases from medical organizations, institutions, and companies; current contents of medical journals and online abstract reviews; reports from medical conventions; and medical sites with running commentary on issues that fall within clinical, legal, and ethical arenas.
 
The sections here are less "newsy" than Medical Professional News list but include more professionally accessible clinical information, frequently refreshed or updated. Many of these references are among the finest on the Web. Similar sites are listed together within categories.
 
This article strives to be comprehensive but not all-inclusive. Many sites were excluded because of unabashed commercialism, sensationalism, or unprofessional presentation or content. Sites aimed solely at the public are also not included. Please contact me with corrections or to submit sites for consideration. Sites that cater to physicians are especially welcome.
