Study group index


Study group discussions aren't posts written by me, but stuff discussed in Medicowesome study groups (On Whatsapp). They are a beautiful mix of individual experiences, viva questions, review questions, etc. I have just edited them to a more readable format.

Anyway, the study group discussions are too many and someone requested them to be separated from posts written by me from the contents page. So we're separating our posts from study group posts written by more than 800 people, indirectly xD

Enjoy browsing through them!

    1. Hey!

      Thank you so much for all the compliments =)

      You could try these research topics:
      What is the prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism in teenagers? (This would involve simple questionnaire + blood test.)
      Is diabetes linked to depression? (This would be based on a questionnaire to screen depression in diabetic patients)

      Just try to find an association or count of people with two conditions. These are very simple research topics.

      More complex topics:
      Is. dementia associated with hypoglycemia?
      Does myopia have a protective effect on diabetic retinopathy?
      Is vitamin D contributory to symptomatic neuropathy?

      Hope it helps you, love.

    2. Ika:
      "Paediatrics" is spelled incorrectly in the heading of the study group section (UK spelling Paediatrics, as opposed to US "Pediatrics" Spelling) NOT "Peadiatrics" in any case

  2. Hey
    Can yu please help me too. Was searching the web to get some idea for a paper work on hypertension.
    Please can yu suggest me some good topics for the research work.
    Like hypertension and people at work. Or something thats more common in today's world.
    I am a third year medical student.. my name is gauri.

    1. Lifestyle interventions for hypertension
      Factors influencing blood pressure levels
      Salutary cardiovascular effects of antidiabetic drugs
      Smoking and hypertension
