Medpedia Project adds health and medical videos

The Medpedia Project has expanded its offerings to include hundreds of medical and health videos from a number of sources including the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute of Health and online expert forum Big Think.

The video topics range from diabetes and H1N1 education to medical procedures and health care reform. The above video, as an example, appears on Medpedia's general anesthesia page and features anesthesia resident Jesse Hill, MD, on a typical day at Stanford.

Medpedia is a worldwide project to evolve a new model for sharing and advancing knowledge about health, medicine and the body among medical professionals and the general public. Stanford's medical school is part of a consortium of academic medical centers and global health organizations contributing to Medpedia.
