About us

MEDtube is a video-centric social eLearning platform for Healthcare Professionals exclusively. It is free to use by the HCP community worldwide (registration is required to benefit from all the website's peer-rewieved educational content and tools). In 2021 the library reached 25,000+ medical materials and the community exceeded 250,000+ professional subscribers (global audience).

The concept of this innovative project came in 2008 when transplant surgeon Michał Wszoła initiated first works, based on his clinical practice (he left MEDtube in 2018). In 2009 another transplantologist Rafał Kieszek joined him and in 2010 the company was formed. MEDtube.net was brought online in July 2011. The project is owned by private individuals originating from Poland. MEDtube is a MedEdTech company (medical education technology). The platform is available in 5 language versions: English (MEDtube.net), French (MEDtube.fr), German (http://de.MEDtube.net), Spanish (MEDtube.es) and Polish (MEDtube.pl).

Philosophy and values

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 result in improving patient comfort and well-being.

We strongly support the idea of sharing medical knowledge among physicians from across the world. Our goal is that MEDtube will play a central role in accelerating this process. Benefits of sharing on a massive scale beyond small private network of direct contacts are underestimated and uncountable.

In our work we are driven by high ethical standards, such as: impartiality, transparency, reliability, fairness, non-discrimination (according to WHO) and equal access to information.
