About OnMedica

OnMedica: The website for doctors and healthcare professionals

onmedica.com is the leading online medical publication for daily news, views, blogs and learning.

We combine high-quality journalism with medical expertise to cater for the daily information and professional development needs of doctors.

Our educational content is peer reviewed and authors are required to declare competing interests.

Although primarily aimed at doctors, onmedica.com is also a valuable resource for nurses, pharmacists, medical students, and other healthcare professionals.

To be able to access all of our content you will need to complete a short registration process.

Any publication or service provided at no cost to members relies on advertising and sponsorship to flourish, and registered members may be offered the chance to view promotional material from companies or healthcare organisations usually via Medicines Interactive presentations. This is one way of ensuring that we can continue to provide the high-quality information and educational modules that are so valued by our members.

The vast majority of our content is entirely independently produced. Some content is supported by unrestricted educational grants, which means that the sponsor has no editorial involvement in the content. Some content is made available to you on behalf of sponsors and this is clearly marked as promotional.

Unlike on other websites, you choose if you want to view any promotional material offered to you.

Our editorial processes and policies are overseen by Medical Editor Luke Koupparis. Luke is a part-time GP in the Bristol area with a particular interest in online education and medical information technology.

OnMedica is a website that doctors and healthcare professionals can and do trust for high-quality information.
