This category is for sites about the practice of medicine.
No sites will be listed at this level.
Sites should not be suggested at this level unless they represent a basic science fundamental to the study or practice of medicine AND if there is not already a specific category linked from here. Please choose one of those other categories if possible, to avoid unnecessary delays in review.

Evidence-based Medicine (EBM) is an approach that encourages the employment of the best available clinical evidence from systematic research for use in clinical practice. It seeks to augment medical traditions not yet subjected to adequate evaluation with findings based on the application of the scientific method. EBM tools include, but are not limited to, randomized controlled trials, systematic reviews (of a series of trials) and meta-analyses.
Sites listed here, and in the subcategories, will focus on the application of evidence-based principles to the practice of Medicine
and its subspecialties.
If your site concerns evidence-based healthcare in general, or in reference to a non-medical field of health such as nursing, dentistry, laboratory medicine, public health, policy-making or health economics, it should be submitted to Evidence Based Healthcare instead.
Sites concerned with alternative (complementary) medicine belong in Alternative Medicine and will not be listed here.
If your site has relevance only to the United Kingdom, it belongs here instead.
Places where the sick and injured are lodged and given medical treatment.
Please submit only Official sites of Military Hospitals.
Information about imaging modalities in health and disease.

This will speed up your listing dramatically!
...Informatics is an emerging discipline that has been defined as the study, invention, and implementation of structures and algorithms to improve communication, understanding and management of medical information. The end objective of biomedical informatics is the coalescing of data, knowledge, and the tools necessary to apply that data and knowledge in the decision-making process, at the time and place that a decision needs to be made. The focus on the structures and algorithms necessary to manipulate the information separates Biomedical Informatics from other medical disciplines where information content is the focus."
Aamir M. Zakaria., MD "Medical Informatics Frequently Asked Questions"
This category is not for sites providing health or medical information. Informatics is quite different from information.
The category examines areas such as health concepts, ontologies, classifications, terminologies, (health) knowledge management methodologies and algorithms, electronic health record storage and delivery structures, health messaging and communication systems (including visual and auditory), and decision support systems. Related topics such as the human-computer interface, ethical and legal impacts, consumer access, security and privacy as well as many ethical issues are part of the health informatics world.
Training,education and standards are important as well as the many philosophical and conceptual debates and challenges as how best to represent health and disease for computer manipulation.
All health care professionals - doctors, nurses and allied health are working in these exciting developments.
Sites will be listed here only if they represent professional journals covering more than one medical specialty. Otherwise, please list in the specific specialty category.

Osteopathy is an established recognized system of diagnosis and treatment, which lays its main emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body. It is distinctive by the fact that it recognizes that much of the pain and disability which we suffer stems from abnormalities in the function of the body structure as well as damage caused to it by disease.
[Description by General Osteopathic Council, 28th October 1998, United Kingdom]
In the United States (where osteopathy originated in the late 19th century) osteopaths are complete physicians, designated by the letters D.O. which stand for doctor of osteopathy and are licensed to practice medicine and surgery and all medical specialties in all 50 states.
