MEDtube is an online video-centric education and communication platform for healthcare professionals. It is free to use by the community of professionals, however, registration is required to benefit from all the website's functionalities. The concept of this innovative project came in 2008 when transplantologist Michał Wszoła initiated first works, based on his clinical practice. In 2009 transplantologist Rafał Kieszek joined him and the company was formed. MEDtube.net was brought online in July 2011.
Thanks to a rapid development of communication technology MEDtube eliminates traditional communication barriers (geographical, cultural and linguistic), facilitating the exchange of knowledge and experiences on an unprecedented scale.

This will result in improving patient comfort and well-being.
