A. Search Options
Our Web search option is the first place our visitors go to
find authoritative, consumer-oriented health and medical information.

user experience is enhanced through a consumer health taxonomy
that encompasses nearly one million medical terms and synonyms
that translates everyday language and precisely matches it
to complex medical information.

discoveries reported from around the world. With the power
of Google Custom Search, we present the news you need to know
from the top 25 sources.

Not pictured above. When you shop and compare prices on health
and medical products, you can save money. Sometimes, up to
50 percent. In these recessionary times and high medical costs,
it makes sense to comparison shop and save.
B. Reference Desk:
Our Reference Desk section was designed and
assembled to help the consumer-researcher and medical professional
access highly useful tools and hard to find resources.
Acronym Search: Since many health
and medical articles contain acronyms (words formed from the
first letter a multi-word name), we have included an Acronym
Search box powered by Medilexicon. With the first search box,
you can just type in the acronym or abbreviation in question
(ie - APHA) and press Go. The second box allows you to type
in keywords and returns a list of all possibile abbreviations.
Medical Associations: When
researching a condition or disease, sometimes it's good to
get information directly from the horse's mouth, as the old
saying goes. Our recently updated Medical Association directory
features more then 230 medical academies, associations, organizations,
foundations, and societies from the United States, and in
some cases, Britain, Canada and Australia and reaches across
112 different categories. Associations are categorized by
an alphabetical/subject combination.
Searchable Databases: Although we
incorporate many of these sources in our Web, News, and MedPro
search results, we've compiled this serendipitous list of
searchable databases to provide you with direct access to
these authoritative health and medical information sources.
search box powered by OneLook searches an amazing 1,065 different
online dictionaries at once and guarantees you'll never be
in doubt to a word's exact meaning ever again.
Health and Medical Forum Directory:
When facing a health crisis, patients and caregivers
often look to others for support and encouragement. They want
to connect with people under similar circumstances and become
part of a community that advances each other's goals, and
prevents mistakes. OMS users can now achieve these goals with
the help of our health and medical forum directory which assembles
more than 120 great chat rooms and forums all together in
one place. Includes 58 general and specific subject forums.
Medical Journals are the one place doctors, students, researchers
and other medical professionals go to keep up to date on the
latest breakthroughs in medical research. With our medical
journal mini-directory, we've compiled approximately 250 links
to medical journal websites in 55 categories. You can search
for any journal by subject.

offering 3D, color coded, animated, microscopic and video
illustrations, our collection of 40 links to the top medical

C. Conditions & Diseases
Although there are many good resources on the
internet for information about various conditions and diseases,
many of those sources don't put all the information together
