The Differential – A medical student (group) blog

A while ago, I mentioned that I received an email from one of the editors of The Differential — a medical student blog that is part of Medscape. Medscape is a part of WebMD and is aimed at health professionals and students.

The email, as I wrote before, asked if I would be interested in joining The Differential as a student writer. After a few email exchanges with the editor, I am now one of the medical student bloggers at the Differential. As per our agreement, the posts I write for them will not be showing up here (at least not immediately).

So check out that site. There are currently seven authors, all medical students. And everyone should be posting at least once a week.

  • Congrats! You know they recently contacted me as well asking for my email address since it’s not public on my website, but I have yet to hear back from them. How long did it take for your interactions to occur?

  • Thanks. πŸ™‚ That’s really cool. Maybe I’ll see you posting on there soon!

    The “interactions” took a while. I got the first email from the editor near the beginning of June. (But the editor was away for a week since that email). She’s been really great to work with.

    Anyways, if you got other questions, feel free to send me an email with the contact form and I’ll reply in a less open medium. And I’m not sure if or when you’ll see my reply here.
