MedPBL 2nd Birthday!

It’s 14th March! Medical PBL is celebrating its 2nd birthday! Actually, I’m not really sure when’s the actual date, so last year I decided to set it on the 14th March. It seems that I’m actually more excited of this birthday than my very own birthday. :P,%20Rome,%20Italy.jpg

You see, Rome wasn’t built in 1 day. And so is Medical PBL (or in short MedPBL). Initially, this was meant to be a journal to keep the information on past PBL cases while I was in 1st year in UKMMC. Well, the idea was abandoned not long after, when I had found that I have to retype the PBL case (It was about Gout) which would actually span longer than what was available in e-Medicine. I mean, if that’s the case, why not just use e-Medicine then? Some lecturers may not quite like the idea, but I feel what is important is to analyze while you read. Do not take in anything word by word. That way, you can even read Wikipedia as a medical source, at least for a start, to give you a general idea, before proceeding to articles with 100,000 words or 10, 000, 000 words. What’s better is you have a discussion with your friends about it too.

So 2 years ago, I’d decided to give this site another chance. Compilation of notes and information sharing were never easy to begin with, but we tried our best. We have friends who were willing to share their knowledge and teach, some who had understand the agony of doing everything from scratch, some who manage to get us updated information, some who were willing to share the materials they had obtained and gave a thought to MedPBL when they wanted to share it, just to name a few. The list of contributors (it’s at the sidebar) is always expanding, such that in the future, I guess I might have to pay a tribute by having a “Hall of Fame” post here.

Not to be forgotten are you readers, who are here, which meant that you gave MedPBL a thought by coming here. What good can there be if there’s no reader, even if there can be great contributors and no one to share the knowledge with? Contributors and readers are equally as appreciated here. I know you may study in various places, from the local universities (Malaysia) to foreign universities, from UK, Egypt to Indonesia, and all the best in your undertakings.

Well, though our list of contributors is always expanding, we still do welcome contribution from anyone, and from readers as well. As long as you are willing to contribute and share with us, we would always welcome you, regardless if you’re a student, a lecturer, a doctor, a specialist, consultant or any other medical personnel. No one is too little to have their voice unheard. Here, the importance lies in the spirit of knowledge-sharing at your own leisure. There’s no pressure for anyone to contribute, so that it remains a passion for all of us. If you're interested, kindly proceed to here.

There’s a lot more I would like to talk about, but to keep things short (after a lengthy story), Happy 2nd Birthday to MedPBL. If you would like to add anything, feel free to do so, the comment box of this post is waiting.
