What is MedCon

X-WOW MedCon is a place for medicine professionals/students to turn knowledge into a source of income.  

“Why did you create X-WOW MedCon?”

Quick story first, 2 years ago when x-wow.com was born, we needed lots of advice from pathologists, (specialised doctors who study the diseases). We had no idea what pathologists do and what they need, it was not possible to afford consultants who could answer all of our questions, in fact, many of our questions were very random and simple and they were not related to disease diagnosis, such as, “the numbers of pathologists around the world”, “how much a clinical microscope cost in the UK”, or “what is this strange looking artefact under the microscope”.

Luckily, we met lots of really nice people, in person, in emails, on social media, who have kindly and patiently provided us guidance and advice. However, there are many people around the world who still rely on Google, which is time consuming and often the answer is wrong. We’ve always wanted to fill this gap, so that whenever someone need some help/advice from an expert, just pay a small fee to get the right answer.

That’s why X-WOW MedCon was born, a secure, innovative and user friendly platform for medicine experts from around the world to obtain or to share knowledge, in another word: a global freelance market to get advice from experts in medicine.

“What can I do with it?”
