Medical Students Blogging on a "Massive Scale" at the University of Michigan

The University of Michigan Medical School encourages students at each level of the program to blog and to "give you an intimate look at their med school lives, —their insights, ‘"ah-ha’" moments, frustrations and excitement."

Currently, there are 12 blogs on the page. A part of the URL is medschool/reality, so this thing should be real.

Graham of Over!My!Med!Body!, who was one of the first blogging medical students at Stanford, suspects some censorship though:

"... look down at the footer:

This page is maintained by UMHS Public Relations & Marketing Communications.
The University of Michigan may monitor this blog about the information you’ll find or delete inappropriate content.

That’s some censorship I’m happy not to have."

  1. 12 is a start. Btw, do you know of any fairly comprehensive directory of health-related bloggers, health professional bloggers, or medical-bloggers in general? I've just been hopping from blogroll to blogroll trying to find out who's who in health blogging.

  2. I like Dr. Charles' Selected Links:

    That's a good start.

    If you go for comprehensiveness, nothing beats

    Also, check the weekly Grand Rounds, at least 30-60 active medical bloggers submit posts there.
