Wiley Asia Blog linkup

We have made another new progress after this blog managed to publish 2 books this year (check out Xlibris, Amazon and Barnes & Noble). The Wiley Asia Blog (based in Singapore) has indicated its interest to link up with this blog on The Early Malay Doctors and another of my blog, Medicine Newbie. I have prepared a short description for each of the blogs as requested by the Wiley rep to facilitate the linkup.

This is an academic as well as a research blog that aims to provide simple, current and brief information to new students in medicine, dentistry and health sciences. Lecturers and researchers who are new to medicine and health sciences may also find this blog useful for writing their first research proposals.

This blog covers topics and materials covered in lectures, small group discussion (SGD), cases used for problem-based learning (PBL), contents covered in fixed-learning modules (FLM), simple cases for class use, data interpretation, links to relevant YouTube videos to enhance learning, and various other resources to help with initial learning (head start). Questions posed during lecture, SGD, PBL, FLM, etc are discussed where possible. Textbooks, image databases and examination questions are discussed in detail where possible. Exam marking schemes are shown and students' mistakes are highlighted where possible. Learning difficulties, confusing matters and uncertainties are highlighted where relevant.
