Why for free?

“Information wants to be free”, is an Internet slogan sometimes used. Based on that very same spirit, but most of all based on the belief that the tuition and knowledge of OM is far to important to be missed out on due to economic hurdles and different prerequisites, we decided to launch a new platform of virtual patients that are completely for free.

With this approach we aim to reach out to a an even larger group of users in order to spread the knowledge of OM to students, professionals and companies around the world, hopefully leading to an increased awareness of this very important but sometimes underestimated field of science.

We believe that the result of nearly a decade of international collaboration and virtual patient development through our former project NeTWoRM is an important contribution to the process of emphasizing the importance of OM and which therefore should be shared with as many people as possible.
