About us

The CEO editor is Dr. W. Wertelecki, M.D., who is a Pediatrician and Medical Geneticist. Associate editors, technical staff and other matters are described in short videos:

CEO is a component of the MedWord site and companion sites are IBIS (International Birth Defects Information Systems) and Pandora Word Box. This project was initiated by OMNI-Net International Charitable Fund and MedWord LLC.

Our policies uphold published standards of quality assurance namely explicit credits to authors, sources, dates/updates, completeness and accuracy of contents, among other criteria. The emphasis is international. We actively promote inclusion of sources “not-in-English” and encourage such submissions for potential posting.

NOTE: ACCESS BY OR SHARED VIEWS WITH MINORS IS NOT RECOMMENDED – to some, clinical images may be disturbing or considered inappropriate.

To promote “open eyes” – clinical skills to note signs and understand which are signals of clinical relevance.

Show provocative illustrations (images and videos) to “open eyes” of clinicians and their ability to translate them into clinical signals.

The images are selected from contributions by experienced clinical geneticists. The editor is Professor Dr. Wladimir Wertelecki, a Pediatrician and Clinical Geneticists (search YouTube).

Ongoing – generally, postings appear weekly.

Frequent postings of provocative images and videos illustrating  developmental landmarks and dysmorphic signs followed by interpretations of signs as signals. Concurrent emphasis on “Medical English”. Postings may consist of single or series of images (galleries), as well as video recordings. Some modules include interpretation of signs as signals and clusters of signals as syndromes. Larger modules may include hypotheses of pathogenesis, etiology and diagnosis.

CEO is NOT a source of information concerning syndromes, diagnosis or medical management. The aim of CEO is limited to an emphasis of provocative images and corresponding medical terminology. Occasionally mention is made of pathogenesis, etiology, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatments with the purpose of enhancing memorization and demonstration of relevance.
