I feel I must respond to this!! We all need to lament on this website and may not want to discuss these issues with personal friends! Physicians, as anyone else who visits the site, should feel welcomed to lament. This is the whole purpose of having discussion forums!!

Thanks,

Closing this forum totally defeats what you are trying to accomplish!!! Let the elitists go elsewhere!!!

I have mixed feelings about making a physicians only site. Sometimes I get invaluable information from my non medical friends, but on the otherhand I don't think that a non medical person can truly understand what it is like to be a physician, and the day to day crap that yoy must deal with.

I am a new member and have found the discussions in the various forums to be a real help. I am interviewing at medical schools now (for fall 2003 entrance) and it has been such a blessing to be able to read about the challenges, especially those regarding family, that women in medicine face. I am married but do not have children...yet. It would be disappointing if a physicians only forum existed, because in joining this site, I wanted to hear the nitty gritty from all of you...so that I could keep the stories (and your creative solutions!) in the back of my mind when facing my own difficulties along the way. :)

Thanks all, I'm listening, keep them coming! :wave:

It looks like most favor keeping this open (I had some emails saying the same).

Also worth mentioning is that you can private message people via these forums for a private one-to-one discussion.. If a message or forum does not interest you then you don't need to read it.

Anyone else?

Thanks...
