NEWSGROUP misc.education.medical - issues related to medical education

CHARTER

The proposed unmoderated group will provide a forum for discussion of issues 
related to medical education. These include, but are not limited to

* Applying to medical school (premed concerns)
* Financial aid/debt management (what discussion of med education is
  complete without this? :-) )
* Medical school curricula
* Applying for internships/residencies/fellowships
* Postgraduate medical education (aka continuing education)
* Current problems with medical education

RATIONALE

There are currently over 100,000 people (with internet/usenet access)
actively pursuing medical education. Yet, there is no newsgroup that
directly addresses the concerns mentioned above. The wide distribution of
the misc.... hierarchy will provide an effective forum for discussion of the
issues mentioned above, while providing the means for an effective, informal
and timely sharing of information, ideas and experiences.

DISCUSSION

should be directed to news.groups.


QUESTIONS

should be directed to me!
