Cleveland Clinic Alumni Magazine Features Founders of AskDrWiki

The Cleveland Clinic Alumni Magazine (Connection Newsletter, Vol. XXVIX No. 1, 2008, PDF, 20 MB) features the founders of one of the best medical wikis -- AskDrWiki.com:

"Along with cardiology colleagues Brian Jefferson, MD, Shane Bailey, MD, and Michael
McWilliams, MD, Dr. Civello established AskDrWiki.com, a non-profit, grassroots, physician-run, physician-maintained online community to publish review articles, clinical notes and medical images.

The four cardiologists now are located in different states. Dr. Civello is in Louisiana, Dr. Jefferson is in Tennessee, Dr. McWilliams is in Delaware and Dr. Bailey continues at Cleveland Clinic. AskDr.Wiki.com keeps them in close contact."

Read the full text of the article on Ken Civello's blog: Cleveland Clinic Alumni Magazine on AskDrWiki.com.

Ken, Brian and I met several times during the early stages of the wiki and I was very impressed by their enthusiasm and dedication. The site was featured on the front page of the main Cleveland newspaper, The Plain Dealer and I still stay by my quote in the article: "Sites like AskDrWiki will change the way we study and teach medicine."
