Other finalists: Kevin, MD , Surgeonsblog , Respectful Insolence, and DiabetesMine

BEST NEW MEDICAL BLOG:

Dr. Val, and the Voice of Reason Part of the Revolution Health Network, she brings a very human approach to medicine, balancing news and research with anecdotes and humor. Congratulations Dr Val!

Other finalists: Doctor David's Blog, The Happy Hospitalist, The Physician Executive, and Suture for a Living.

BEST LITERARY MEDICAL BLOG:

Random Acts of Reality by Tom Reynolds of the London Ambulance Service. Tom's gripping tales from the frontlines of the human condition are what won him this category in 2005 (the year he also took top honors for Best Medical Blog).

Other nominees included Dr. H├ębert's Medical Gumbo, intueri, A Chronic Dose, and Surgeonsblog.

BEST HEALTH POLICIES / ETHICS BLOG:

Running a Hospital, see above. Yes, it won two awards!!

BEST MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES / INFORMATICS BLOG:

They've got a bit of a dilemma here. So are going to hold off on naming a winner in this category, until they review the voting data, and consult an ethicist (perhaps one of the nominees in the previous category...)

BEST CLINICAL SCIENCES WEBLOG:

New York Emergency Medicine, the innovative new blog that features interviews with leading figures in EM, quizzes with cash prizes, and interesting medical and legal case discussions.

Other finalists: Sumer's Radiology Site (who won in 2005), Clinical Cases and Images, and Aetiology.

BEST PATIENT BLOG:

Chronic Babe, a site created for young women by Jenni Prokopy who faces her debilitating chronic illness with a positive outlook.

Other finalists: Six Until Me, Billy Bob's Wild Ride, The biopsy report, and DiabetesMine (see above, nominated for best blog)

Congratulations to all the winners!
