1) Respect each other!
Lots of us come from different backgrounds and social classes so there are bound to be differences amongst us. Please avoid foul language and name calling as this may result in banishment from the site. Remember, we all have something in common, and thats to practice medicine to the best of our abilities. Think about what your about to say, before you say it.
2) Keep it relevant.
Stick to the topic discussed on hand. If the conversation strays in another direction, make a new forum for it. Also remember, its not necessary to comment on every single reply. Please only comment if you have something productive to contribute to the blog, or a relevant question to ask.
3) Avoid languages other than ENGLISH!
This is a personal request. I find it very difficult to read text that is written in english but whose language is different. Keep it simple, dealing with medical nomenclature is hard enough. No need to make it harder.
4) Try to do some research first.
Look for a post relevant to a question you may have before you decide to make a new one. This cuts down on redundancy.
5) Keep it anonymous.
Avoid student, teacher, and administration names. This will pretty much keep us all out of trouble.
6) Site your References
According to book, author, edition, and preferably page number. Thanks!
7) This isn't facebook.
This is a professional forum so please keep your content just that, professional. A bit of humor and constructive criticism is always appreciated to keep a light tone. Gossip and social talk is not welcomed and abusers may be banished from the site. If you really need to get something out, stalk them on facebook/twitter/orkut, not here. Thanks.
8 ) HELP EACH OTHER OUT!!!
I just graduated a few weeks back and trust me, this is very important. Our clinical group was the only group in which ALL group members passed ALL group tests INCLUDING PROFF! Ziauddin faculty were absolutely astounded by this feat. This is simply because our group helped each other out in all ways possible. None of us is a "know it all" but collectively, I think we can be. If we go out of our way to help one another out, we can make great progress. Honesty is key is success. Besides, there's no sweetness in hiding information from your brother, so why not share the goods?
