About UsMEDtube is an online medical multimedia library for Healthcare Professionals worldwide - the largest collection of educational video content. The innovative project was launched in 2009 and initiated by two visionary surgeons. The idea was based on their own medical practice. MEDtube.net was brought online in July 2011.
MEDtube is now the world's largest online library with high-quality multimedia content of clear practical and educational value, counting over 11.000 professional medical videos. The resources are provided by physicians, clinicists, medical societies, healthcare centers and universities from all over the world. MEDtube community (over 24.000 registered HCPs) contribute to the idea of sharing medical knowledge. MEDtube is free to use by the community of medical professionals.
The e-library contains medical videos, surgical videos, photos of medical cases, visualizations and animations, interviews, presentations, academic lectures, case-reports, podcasts and other professional materials in all medical Specialties. MEDtube is also broadcasting live surgery events across the world. The global community of Professionals may educate from all resources provided on MEDtube.net and to benefit from the network of colleague doctors, increasing their professional skills and improving quality of their work with patients.
MEDtube is publishing The Tribune - an online professional bulletin with medical articles, cases and news focused on new technologies in Healthcare.
Our strong commitment to MEDtube comes from the belief that medical sciences, as we know them today, are going to be revolutionized by innovation and the application of new technologies, visual ones in particular. Communication and knowledge diffusion without any geographical or cultural barriers, via broadband Internet, is opening new horizons to medical practice and sciences. This will improve patient comfort and well-being.
We strongly support the idea of sharing medical knowledge among medical doctors across the world and it is our goal that MEDtube will play a central role in accelerating this process. Benefits of sharing beyond small private network of direct contacts are underestimated and uncountable.
The Content QualityMEDtube is strict about quality and is striving to sustain the highest medical standards. Before publication all the uploaded materials are reviewed and have to be accepted by editorial team represented by MDs with deep expertise in all medical Specialties. Controversial materials or such without clear educational value are not published.

The Business Model
MEDtube is providing an advanced technological video platform and does not charge physicians who want to view or share knowledge. The business model is transparent - the revenue stream is generated from commercial educational projects funded by the medical devices and pharmaceutical industries. While their support is critical to the success of MEDtube, supporters are prohibited from funding projects that are intended to market their products to medical professionals and clinicians. In this way an effective firewall exists to prevent the presentation of commercially biased information to users.
MEDtube team is orchestrated and motivated around one goal - building the unique new medical tools to educate physicians faster, better and cheaper. The team consists of medical doctors, IT specialists and e-marketing professionals. There are 30 talented individuals in the group who guarantee high level of medical content as well as the technical reliability of the website and organizational efficiency of this complex project.
The Tribune is an online bulletin with medical articles, cases and news. It is focused on innovative techniques of treatment, clinical research, new developments of drugs and medical devices.
