myVMC – Virtual Medical Centre

Virtual Medical Centre (VMC) is an Australian medical information website. It delivers medical information, written by medical professionals, about current conventional medicine.

myVMC was born out of the necessity to have quality medical information available online to members of the general public. Health professionals can access medical information based on the latest best practice guidelines at www.myvmc.com.

There are 25 medical specialty areas from cancer, to heart health, sexual health and child’s health. Each has medical information on:

  • prescription drugs
  • disease information
  • symptoms of disease
  • medical treatment
  • medical tests
  • doctor videos and animations
  • tools and calculators
  • latest medical trials and research
  • health events and conferences
  • medical support for patients
  • latest medical news
  • RSS feeds
  • medical dictionary

The information presented by myVMC is designed to support that provided by health professionals and never to replace it.
