Why get involved?
Mediwikis is a student-led medical community. The power isn't in any one contributor, but in drawing on the strengths of each individual, for powerful, accurate and up to date content.
This means that the content of the site gets much better as more students get involved, even in niche areas. It also means that you can be on this cutting edge of medical education, a powerful role to discuss, and since most doctors will end up teaching as part of their job, work on this website represents invaluable early preparation, which can be discussed later on when applying for jobs.
Finally, it's an altruistic thing to do! Thousands of students use mediwikis as part of their learning, and by contributing you're "paying it forward" to the next generation
