The Internet has transformed the way people communicate and search for knowledge. It offers yet untold potential for all the humanity in huge number of fields, providing free and democratic access to information for everyone. Particularly in healthcare, the advent of the Internet has promoted a real revolution, helping to spread knowledge and encouraging collaboration among health care providers, researchers and med students.
It is in this unprecedented scenario, when thousands of pieces of information are fed every second to the web, that LinksMedicus.com has been created, in order to provide in a single place access to most of the good quality free medical education resources available on the web, which are continuously organized and regularly updated. Located in the heart of São Paulo and being a reference in complex cases for Brazil and Latin-America, Sirio-Libanês Hospital has embraced the idea of spreading medical knowledge worldwide and is the single sponsor of the LinksMedicus.com project.
