Sites offering information on Ayurveda, diet, nutrition, medicine etc. are scattered all over the Web space. However, you probably haven't come across too many sites where all such information is in the same place. is one such repository of medicine-related information, all under one roof, and it's authoritative-it's been put together by the Medical Computer Society of India (MCSI).

The information on Medindia. net will be useful for the novice and the medical fraternity alike.

Look And Feel
Space management of the pages on the site is not up to the mark. However, after you get used to it there shouldn't be too much trouble finding what you're looking for. All topics are placed under simple headers; however, there seem to be too many headers!

The pages on the site have been divided into four columns, comprising an index list, information, ads, and related links. The pages have a series of toolbars at the top, which eat up about a fourth of the page!
To put it in a few words-very good! It looks like the MCSI has thought about everything: Alternative Medicine, Legal Cell, Medical Glossary, Resort Links, Journals and more. It would probably fill a few pages if we were to try and list out all the topics available. You will not be disappointed-you can find answers to most of your queries on various topics here.

News on talks about recent developments in medicine across the world. This is useful for medical professionals who wouldn't want to spend on subscribing to medical journals! Medical students will also find it useful. Apart from news, medical journals and health reports are the other value additions. also provides links to various hospitals across India as well as abroad. The site has a facility for doctors to create their own homepage where they can upload personal information. This can act as a good base for visitors searching for a specialist or someone with a particular skill set.

While the information for patients, doctors, etc. have been classified under different heads, also acts as an interface to link medical colleges across the country.

Apart from information, there is humour, health tips, nutrition utilities, information on how to spend your free time in summer, health calculators, organ donation information, blood donation information and more! sports links such as a forum, matrimonial, healthcare jobs and other interesting links. You can read up about medical conferences, and landmark cases in medicine; students can get information about medical colleges and courses, buy medical books and so on.

An extremely useful site with lots of information, could have improved upon its layout and navigation. People interested in the subject of medicine and related issues would do well to bookmark this site-only after visiting it a number of times will you start getting the hang of what lies where, and of the sheer amount of information available!
