Doctors No Longer Have to Feel Left Out

ScienceRoll's Bertalan Meskó has launched PeRSSonalized Medicine, a new online tool for time-strapped doctors who need to keep up with the literature but don't have time, or don't know much about Web 2.0 tools. "PeRSSonalized Medicine is a free tool that lets you select your favorite resources (e.g. medical journals, blogs, community sites) and read the latest news in one personalized place,” he writes. Docs can now easily and efficiently track medical journals, medical blogs, medical news, and medical media including Youtube channels, Friendfeed rooms, or Del.icio.us tags.
