  • prescription drugs
  • disease information
  • symptoms of disease
  • medical treatment
  • medical tests
  • doctor videos and animations
  • tools and calculators
  • latest medical trials and research
  • health events and conferences
  • medical support for patients
  • latest medical news
  • RSS feeds
  • medical dictionary

The information presented by myVMC is designed to support that provided by health professionals and never to replace it.
