  1. Despite the fact that I’m a total stranger, I’m a huge fan of this blog. I stumbled upon it randomly when looking for opinions on physicians with tattoos and piercings. Just wanted to let you know that I find this blog incredibly entertaining.

  2. Hi! I couldn’t find a contact email, so just adding a comment here. I’m Sarah Kim from One Medical Group — and we’ve recently established a scholarship program for 3rd year medical students interested in primary care. I’d love to see if you’d be interested in helping us promote this to your readers — many who (I assume) are also medical students. If interested, could you email me at skim[at]onemedical[dot]com.

  4. Hi,love the blog:), since there is no contact address I guess I’ll take a chance here. I have a medical blog and site that focusses on new medical techs and tips for for those in the med field, I was hoping perhaps you would be able to help me out …

      1. Hi, thanks for replying…well I was either thinking of some sort of link sharing or perhaps even through a guest blog post.I could let forward you the links to my sites, if you interested at all please do not hesitate to send me mail.:)

  5. Hello, I’m the marketing assistant for Medicine Books at Oxford University Press. I’m writing to you to ask if you would be interested in reviewing forthcoming Oxford Specialty Training titles? For more information, please email me at
    Many thanks.

  6. Hi, while searching for medical blogs, I luckily had the chance of finding yours. Your combination of book reviews, medical daily routine entries and especially your work on the tips for new student interns series are amazing! Maybe you are interested in reviewing our new Qbank, magazine as well as online tutorials as this could be an additional medical resource for your readership? For further information, please email me at: Big thanks in advance and keep up with your great work!

  7. Stumbled upon this not really looking for everything but love a good read, especially medically related since I am trying to blog myself (bit difficult juggling time as a final year med student)
    Love how its not ONLY medicine you write about, and the poems and pics make it light and uplifting to read.
    Look forward to more posts!

    Welcome to check out my blog too- more of music, the arts and spiritual stuff amongst other things:)

  8. Hello,
    I just matriculated and I was really hoping to get into med school this year. Even though my marks were quite good and I was on the waiting list, I didn’t get in. I am immensely glad that I found your blog though, it really helped me realise that there are other alternatives. So thank you. The fact that you are an avid reader as well is a bonus! I definitely will continue reading your blog 🙂

  9. Hi Mariechen,

    I’ve just come across your blog and really enjoyed reading through your stuff and I’d love for your content to be published and shared on our website, Campus Society, and yes, I work at Campus Society (in case you hadn’t sussed :P). It’s a global community site for students that allows you to share knowledge, collaborate and network globally – I think your blog really provides a unique perspective, and as such, I think it would be amazing to have you on board. The whole concept is based on ‘channels’ that allow for easy interaction. I am part of the newly launched blogging network on our site and we would love if you created a channel where you share your blogs. The key draw is the fact that you can:

    (a) build a substantial following here as our community is growing quickly and

    (b) people can interact via chat around your posts and this leads to very useful engagement.

    It’s like a community version of your traditional blog! There is such great scope to grow and publicise your blog and earn rewards for your work with some really exciting incentives (real, physical ones!)

    We’d love for you to be a part of it and it’s super easy to get started. Simply follow this link and you will be sent directly through to our Network where you can start growing your blog right away.

    I really hope we can see your channel on board the site, soon!
