After a careful analysis and consideration, we are pleased to present the finalists of the 2008 Medical Weblog Awards. But first, a few notes.
Voting will begin tomorrow. We will have instructions, voting booths, and further details here at Medgadget.com.
The 2008 Medical Weblog Awards, a competition in its fifth year, is proudly sponsored by Epocrates, whose mobile medical software solutions have been used by hundreds of thousands of clinicians and have been recognized as the industry’s leading software for many years. Epocrates is generously donating to the winner in the Best Medical Weblog category the latest version of Epocrates Essentials Deluxe, a premium mobile suite of drugs, diseases and diagnostics that also features a medical dictionary, coding reference, clinical calculators and more, as well as the latest Palm® Tungsten™ E2 handheld. The package is valued at over $500.
Winners of the individual categories will receive a Palm Z22 handheld with Epocrates Essentials, a package valued at $250.
And to wrap up the prizes, all winners will receive an annual subscription to the Placebo Journal, “The Only Medical Journal That Will Make You Laugh… On Purpose!”
Lastly, we would like to thanks everyone for taking the time to nominate their favorite medical blogs. As our judging committee went through the dozens of weblogs in each category, we enjoyed looking through so many fascinating sites, some known to us, some recently born, but all dedicated to the advancement of the science and art of medicine. We know firsthand that each blog is someone’s labor of love, and that blogging is both labor intensive and a very personal experience, and as such, we took the job of selecting the finalists very seriously.
And now, the drum roll… PLEASE MEET THE FINALISTS!
