Welcome to the Internal Medicine Encyclopedia

Imagine a world in which every single doctor on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human Internal Medicine knowledge. That's what we're doing. (Modified from Jimmy Wales quote)

IMpedia.NET is an online textbook of Internal Medicine which is freely accessible and any medical professional can contribute to the website and changes are supervised by physicians.

The IMpedia Project is a worldwide collaborative project to develop a comprehensive, best researched resource for Internal Medicine community and to evolve a new model for sharing and advancing Internal Medicine knowledge. Just register and start contributing to the fastest growing collaborative Internal Medicine encyclopedia around. It is a great way to consolidate Internal Medicine knowledge, while simultaneously adding to a growing resource that you and your colleagues will be able to use for years to come.

Most medical knowledge is created by researchers working for publicly funded institutions and the outcomes are often published by commercial institutions, which restrict the free flow of medical knowledge by limiting access to the published work by erecting paid subscription walls, thereby making it difficult or impossible to access the knowledge for many doctors throughout the world. Nowadays, both new (PLoS.org) and established medical journals (BMJ) are adopting open access strategies. But, open access to up-to-date textbook style medical knowledge is virtually non-existent. IMpedia is built to fill in such a gap. IMpedia is freely accessible, high quality, up-to-date Internal Medicine resource. IMpedia is a non-profit organization and all content is published under a creative commons non-commerical share-alike license. This means you are free to copy the material for non-commercial use as long as you attribute the author and IMpedia.
