What are some good medical professional forums that do no require proof of licensure for registration?
Question by William: What are some good medical professional forums that do no require proof of licensure for registration?
I earned an M.D. and residency certificate before studying for the doctorate I using in my current career and so never went through the final steps leading up the receiving a medical license. However, I have been regretting going into mathematical and theoretical physics over medical science and am now putting great consideration into biophysics research, and possibly even clinical practice, but do not have a community of professional to acquaint myself with in order to formulate a better idea of the form of my future plans.
So . . . . to make a long story short, I was wondering if members could provide me with some decent World Wide Web, Usenet, or any other type of internet protocol-ed forums for someone in my situation.
Are there any forums in the league of Sermo.com that do not require licensure?

www.StudentDoctor.net is a great forum that is primarily led by medical students and people in similar fields. I just recently became acquainted with the site (I’m a 2nd-year med student), but it seems like an excellent, albeit casual, resource for someone in your shoes. I’ve been using it to flesh out my own plans for the near (and far) future. Good luck!
