British medical e-learning network Meducation has secured $1 million in seed financing. The state-funded Technology Strategy Board provided $300,000 for the startup, while the remaining amount came from anonymous private investors, according to TechCrunch.

Meducation helps medical students and practitioners gain access to thousands of online educational resources to support their studies and improve their medical skills. These resources include tutorial videos, slideshows, podcasts, and other illustrations, the report detailed.

What makes Meducation unique from other e-learning companies is its Question & Answer feature. The UK-based website allows its members to type in specific questions and get answers from other community members. Those who want to gain access to premium content just need to pay for subscription which is available in selected locations only, the report further explained.

Meducation was launched by Dr. Alastair Buick and Jeremy Walker in April 2008. The startup says it now has over 35,000 members from the worldwide medical community to date, TechCrunch reported.
