Family Practice sites

  • FP Notebook. "An ongoing compendium of the diagnosis and management of common medical problems seen in Family Practice." Go here and type in almost anything to search for ophthalmic images, physical exam tips, jokes, common conditions, etc.  Also, under "Doctor Tools" you will find worksheets and flowcharts for common conditions in different organ systems:
  • From the American Academy of Family Physicians. A very thorough site with lots of links and "health tools" (like information about drugs, or how many calories are consumed by jogging):
  • The American Academy of Family Physicians site itself:
  • The Illinois Academy of Family Physicians:
  • Society for Women's Health Research - "the nation's only not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve the health of all women through research, education and advocacy." Separate pages for consumers, health professionals and researchers. Extensive links page.
  • Women's Health Information from the National Women's Health Resource Center :
  • WorldOrtho - "the world of orthopaedics, trauma and sports medicine":


Another specialty branch of medicine.  Just like children are not just little people, the elderly are not just old versions of you. Their bodies and minds are different and they need to be recognized as a special group.

  • This web page is a general overview of what has become known as Elder Care, covering topics from diet to memory to the toll being a caregiver takes on the giver:
  • Tele-help Line for Caregivers - not really just for geriatrics. This tells you a little about a grant-sponsored phone helpline run through SIU's Dept of Psychology. Many helpful links on aging:
  • Alliance for Aging Research:
