"I have devoted my long professional career to technology harvesting of innovation in medicine and new technologies in surgery. One of the most difficult barriers to innovation has been the real-time access to information about the rapidly emerging new technologies. It is this inefficiency in the timely availability of announcements of new discoveries that has slowed the diffusion of new technologies and impaired their early adoption. MEDtube is a powerful new platform that provides healthcare professionals a much more immediate exposure to such new technologies. MEDtube is a welcome addition of rapid access to trusted healthcare knowledge and early discovery which is as much of a game-changers as the innovations which they report."

Neurosurgeon, president, UEMS-EACCME (European Union of Medical Specialists), vice-president, Polish Chamber of Physicians and Dentists


"Learning opportunities for young medical professionals increased due to dissemination of technologies, with video at the top. But the most experienced specialists can benefit too and in my opinion they should use these new tools even more intensively. At the training stage it is more relevant to utilise systematic materials and for experienced professionals the MEDtube format is adequate to evaluate and utilise in practice. The diversity of content provided by MEDtube is good opportunity to watch methods and techniques performed in other parts of the world, with no need to travel. Direct communication with colleagues dealing with similar problems is a powerful advantage as well. It makes sens in particular when innovative procedures are implemented and the routine ones are improved. It would suggest to include simulation in the future. The knowledge shared by professionals via MEDtube serves well to the community and should be accessed easily and preferably free of charge. I express interest in accredited training courses for physicians and dentists that use decent education technologies and new media in the future."

"MEDtube platform empowers our heath professional community around the globe to compare its work and discuss it, with benefits to all interested parties (and patients at the end). I recommend participating in MEDtube to physicians at every stage of professional development and to those colleagues who want to share their innovative approach - to submit video cases and allow peers to provide comments."

Adam Dziki

Adam Dziki, MD, PhD

Past President, Association of Polish Surgeons


"Congratulations to colleagues for the idea of MEDtube platform. In the era of computerization in medicine and application of robots in the operating rooms, it is high time to share  knowledge with others on a massive scale. Younger generation of MDs should benefit from the experience of older colleagues. A short time of practising in the course of specialization does not allow to compare different surgical techniques used by different surgeons, so MEDtube can successfully fill this gap and provide the opportunity to learn, as well as to raise awareness of presentation of achievements. I wish MedTube team further development of the project and at least the same amount of ideas and energy as so far."

The MEDtube directory is a practical tool for all medicine professionals - the only place with so broad medical multimedia resources in the global Internet I know.

Kazimierz Niemczyk

Kazimierz Niemczyk, MD, PhD

Chief, Department of Otolaryngology, Warsaw Medical University


"I consider MEDtube an important project for medical education in the future. MEDtube is filling the gap between theory and practice, especially in surgical specialties where access to the operating field is very limited. The technologies commonly used in operating rooms (microscopes in Otolaryngology) help to register and archive procedures. My Department is gathering numerous ambitious, young professionals, open to adapt new technologies and platforms like MEDtube. With no doubt we will be utilising the tool more and more intensively."

Wojciech Omulecki

Wojciech Omulecki, MD, PhD

President, Polish Ophthalmological Society


"I learned about the MEDtube platform with interest. In my opinion further evolution of the project will have significant impact on professional medical education, exchange of knowledge and best practises. Easy access to information, in the form of videos and pictures in particular, is very attractive form of education, especially in invasive specialties. There has been a tremendous progress in ophthalmic microsurgery in recent years and many new surgical techniques emerged. They can be easily demonstrated on videos. Innovative methods of imaging of eye structures have been continuously developing too. In my opinion MEDtube can play an important role in education of specialists and well complement the website of Polish Ophthalmological Society. My best wishes."

"I was glad to discover MEDtube. It is a tool perfectly addressing the challenges that todays medicine is facing. The progressive specjalization caused by the increasing knowledge mass make it necessary to quickly access the latest developments and information - both in the traditional, text form, as well as in the form of videos or photos. Especially the patient treatment areas will be those where usage of new technologies will be increasing. Growing number of surgical treatments is performed with endoscopic techniques, which are documented digitally. The Internet and new technologies help to better educate phisicians. I am using MEDtube in my everyday clinical and scientific practice, not only viewing other doctors materials but also sharing my knowledge and uploading my videos."

"The role of digital image in doctors education is not a curiosity or supplement any longer. Application of computers and videosurgery are now our everyday job and because it is so easy to store it should help to educate younger colleagues. So far the platform like MEDtube did not exist. I am glad that MEDtube filled that gap. It is a very promising platform and practical tool facilitating both education and clinical practise. Thanks to the high saturation with knowledge of the video content, efficiency of our work can be significantly increased."

Grzegorz Wallner

"Such project was missing. MEDtube now greatly satisfies the demand for modern pathway enabling transfer of knowledge between doctors with different experience and fields of expertise, thus increasing the efficiency of communication in medicine. We are already publishing on MEDtube with ease that was unavailable before for video content. It saves much time and guarantees global reach. Achievements need to be promoted for the benefit of others and this is why I praise MEDthe the most - it stimulates competition, with the final benefit for healthcare quality. I am planning to utilise the content from MEDtube during my lectures in the University. Since the beginning, MEDtube is supported by the oldest Association of Polish Surgeons (established in 1889r.)."
