During my medical entrance examination preparation, I used




These sites welcome posts where you could submit a "homework" (which was the tag used) style question, post your working, and have people comment on it/guide you. They were a big part of me getting into medical school, as instead of getting stuck for hours researching one minute detail I could write a question and come back later.

Is there something similar for medical school questions?

I often find myself getting stuck interpreting things - e.g. what exactly does and doesn't constitute the C and V parts of CHA2DS2VAS. (Note, I am not asking this question here, I am just using it as an example for context).

Are these types of questions suitable for Medical Science Stack Exchange (and is there a particular tag to use?, and if not, would anyone know of any websites that are suitable?

Many thanks


Homework questions are fine as long as they meet the prior research requirement. Using your example, we would expect you to know what CHADS-Vasc stands for, but asking what actually constitutes the "C" or "V" part would be a good question. (Do yourself a favor and drop the "2" part from the acronym. Everyone knows what you mean by CHADS-Vasc and adding the "2" part just makes it the most ridiculous acronym in the world.)

There doesn't appear to be a homework tag currently, but feel free to create it when you make your first post.

  • Great. Thank you for the information, both regarding my question and the CHADS-Vasc tip.
