Welcome to OpenMed

Our aim is to point to excellent openly available resources for medical education.

  • For all levels, beginner to postgraduate
  • For all professions (doctor, nurse, clinical officer, medical student, other)
  • Anywhere in the world

Some of the resources are our own, but for most we are pointing to carefully selected open educational resources from anywhere in the world. Browse the curriculum, or simply search for a term from any page.

We are slowly adding resources so if there isn’t much in your area yet, please come back.
