For the medical professional, the access of accurate information on the Internet is not easy. In this paper, we list medical online resources that we have found to be useful, accurate and easy to navigate for the medical professionals. Medical Librarian today needs to rethink to manage and organize these medical online resources and to facilitate to an easy access to the resources over the Internet.
