I am going to start off by adding information for medical practitioners. This will be pitched at the level of medical student and GP rather than for gastroenterologists. I am currently going through a process of self education with MKSAP and will provide a summary of my readings topic by topic.

I generally don’t keep notes of the reading that I have done, mostly because of calligraphic issues. The last time I made notes was way back in medical school, and I think it’s time to revisit the tradition. Keeping notes will help me to focus on what is important, as well as provide a summary for review. Rather than keeping my notes for myself, it is just as easy and simple to post them on my blog! What a great idea, even if it’s only me that reads it.

I hope to provide this information to local GPs as an aid in gaining a gastroentologist’s perspective. I hope medical students will also find this useful, particularly in preparing for physicians exams.

After MKSAP I will spend some time writing more in the patient section and then hopefully spend some time with literature reviews.
