MedWorld is our chance as students, health care professionals and patients across the globe, to forge our own on-line community. MedWorld is a place where everyone is invited to share opinions, experiences and advice about medicine.

"Our readers are our writers. The internet is our press. The world is our audience."

Who can join the MedWorld team?
Anyone! You do not have to be a medical student, physician, or health care professional. You merely have to have an interest in medicine!

Is MedWorld limited to Stanford?
Absolutely not! Although Stanford medical students started the MedWorld project and maintain the site, MedWorld is an open forum for all participants, regardless of affiliation.

How can I contribute to MedWorld?
As a MedWorld team member, you will have privileges on our team homepage where we keep postings of story ideas and assignments. Browse around, see what you are interested in, contribute your own ideas, and then write!

We also encourage contributions (artwork, prose, announcements) addressed to any section of MedWorld. How about profiling your new student group? Share your opinions with the world in our MedWorld Perspectives column! Publicize your next conference or regional meeting!

MedWorld is growing and we want you to be involved! Please come to us with your ideas, comments and feedback.

How do I join the MedWorld Team?
Send us a message. If your home is not in the United States, you may want to consider joining the Global MedWorld team. Over 16 countries strong, the Global MedWorld team is dedicated to bringing an international perspective to MedWorld.

No matter where you are, or who you are, MedWorld is a great place to meet people like you, who have an interest in medicine.
