Medical Student Bloggers -- A Comprehensive List

Mark Rabnett, a librarian at University of Manitoba, has assembled a comprehensive list of medical student bloggers: Blogging med school.

"There were no student bloggers in my day, no such satisfying means of publicly dealing with the daily horrors of academe. Writing papers on a typewriter leaves one too exhausted for much else. Besides, we were too busy studying Madame Blavatsky or Lenin." But now students armed with formidable computing power can blog away 24/7.

I am happy to find a medical student blogger at the medical school where I am on faculty:

  1. Thanks for the link-up. I have already been a subscriber to your blog for a few months now. :-)

  2. You're most welcome.

    I'm glad you decided to start a blog and hope you keep it up throughout your medical school and beyond. Some of your school peers told me they also enjoyed reading your blog.

    Will be happy to help with whatever I can.

  3. I'm relatively new to this. Though, I am a little disappointed. I thought there would be more reword to it in the form of socializing and conversation. I'm not sure whether I should hold on or give up and utilize my time doing something else. Do you have any advice or suggestions?

    Very useful link by the way. The article is really interesting.
