Wikipedia is a great resource for any medical student. It is basically a large collaborative free encyclopedia on the web. It is maintained by thousands of editors worldwide. Fortunately, many of these editors have an interest in medicine, so many articles have detailed, fairly accurate information about medical topics. Of course, if you want a definitive answer, you should use a textbook like Harrison's. However, for quick queries, such as "What is Werner-Morrison Syndrome?" (click for the answer), Wikipedia is a great resource. Future articles will describe how to use Wikipedia even more efficiently.
