Valuable Resources for Medical Professionals

Many of our users tell us that Global Library of Scientific Images is an excellent tool for building a personal collection of reference images – something medical professionals can have on-hand when interpreting scans and test results. Our broad spectrum of images enables learners at all levels to advance their knowledge on a myriad of medical topics. Also, because our content is peer-reviewed by an editorial board of medical experts, members do not have to verify every single image. All they have to do is select the image, which also brings up the attribution, a brief description, and relevant information. Registration allows free, unlimited downloads for educational purposes. 

Opportunity to Publish and Contribute

In addition to Global Library of Scientific Images serving as a resource for medical professionals, it also provides the opportunity for publication and contribution. The database gives medical residents, fellows, and others a dedicated space to publish and share images or videos. Prior to Global Library of Scientific Images, some in the scientific community who had a desire to share interesting images they encountered in clinical and academic medicine ran into a problem. Their images were valuable, but because they did not have enough supporting information to warrant a full case study or report, the materials went unpublished and unseen. Now, however, contributors have a venue to share their smaller projects, receiving academic or publication credit, and helping develop our medical research community.

Easy-To-Find Educational Images

Medical professionals, including professors, physicians, nurses, trainees, and pharmacists, also need high-quality images for their formal presentations and lectures. With Global Library of Scientific Images, it’s never been easier to find what you need and be confident that everything is appropriately vetted. When you download a visual from our library, you can trust it’s ready to be used in any project or presentation.
