Although medical case reports have fallen out of favor in the era of the impact factor, there is a long tradition of using case reports for teaching and discovery. Some evidence indicates that writing case reports might improve medical students' critical thinking and writing skills and help prepare them for future scholarly work. From 2009 through 2015, students participating in the case reporting program at a VA hospital produced 250+ case reports, 35 abstracts, and 15 journal publications. Here, three medical students who published their case reports comment on what they learned from the experience...

BACKGROUND: Scientific publication is commonly used to communicate research findings and in most academic/research settings, to evaluate the potential of a researcher and for recruitment and promotion. It has also been said that researchers have the duty to make public, the findings of their research. As a result, researchers are encouraged to share their research findings with the scientific world through peer review publications. In this study, we looked at the characteristics and publication rate of theses that documented studies on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in Cameroon...

A family of Watkins doctors originating in the Northamptonshire town of Towcester included 13 doctors in seven generations during 250 years. In each generation there were between one and four doctors. Three doctors involved themselves actively in innovative yet controversial practises, described in their own writings and publications. Timothy Watkins' (1755-1834) own handwritten lecture notes describe the problems affecting an 18th-century man-midwife, while his accounts book provides insights into his lifestyle...

The Academic Schools Act 1920 and the ordinance of 1924 pertaining to doctorates provided that one could earn the degree only having submitted a dissertation. The Austrian Act which was in force up to that moment had allowed to receive the degree without writing a thesis. The Jagiellonian University Faculty of Medicine granted doctorates without dissertation up to the end of December 1931. However some doctorates were granted even after that term.

BACKGROUND: The actual value of medical dissertations is under current discussion. Studies concerning medical dissertation focused on successful candidates only. Therefore, data about physicians without "MD" are still lacking. PERSONS AND METHODS: We therefore performed a representative study of both, physicians with and without the "Dr. med." degree. Using an anonymous questionnaire we asked for reasons to perform a doctoral thesis. RESULTS: A total of 321 questionnaires could be evaluated (successful candidates n = 181; unsuccessful candidates n = 140)...

Doctors who were general practitioners in the period 1973-88 and had written a successful MD or PhD thesis were identified. Of 96 doctorates, 64 were MDs and 32 PhDs. Fourteen doctors had obtained their MD before becoming general practitioners and the remaining 50 after becoming general practitioners. Twenty of the 64 doctors were full time or part time members of a university department of general practice; six of these were professors. In this 16 year study the mean annual number of MDs written by doctors while in general practice was three, compared with five in the previous 15 years...

The present paper--actually a synthesis of the author's thesis for M.D. degree--aims at pointing out the need there is for an MD-oriented education in normal and pathological sexuality to be implemented. A 228-medical student/175-physician sample was administered the well-known SKAT test altogether with a questionnaire dealing with sexual personal experience, contraception procedures, and self-evaluation on knowledge, training, and personal attitude toward sex-related matters. Results showed mistakes and misinterpretations in the area of knowledge of both groups: Personal experience appears to be a physician's sole guideline...
