This is the first blog entry for the new Student Mess website.
Its been 1 year in the making but its finally arrived, and we hope you like it.
For those of you who don't know, Student Mess is designed to let medical students/doctors share notes, videos, podcasts, pictures etc... with each other to make life at medical school that little bit easier.
This is a brand new site, which means we're just getting started in terms of content. Which is where you come in!
In order for all our users to get the most from the site we need everybody to contribute. If you've benefited from some of the material already on the site then why not give something back by uploading things that you think will help others.
If everybody contributes something then the idea is to make Student Mess a solid resource for medical students to learn from.
As well as the educational side, the new website offers a great community too. You can socialise with existing friends or even make some new ones from all over the world.
All members have something to gain from this website, if you share material that you think will help your colleagues somebody is bound to share something that will benefit you. So its win win!
Remember for the site to work its down to its members, so lets make this a solid platform for medics and get sharing.
Don't forget to tell all your friends about it too so that we can grow the content on the site as quickly as possible.
Thats all for now, and thanks again for all your support.

Hey guys, just a quick message.
We really need your help to get this site up to its potential.
In order for you to get access to the great and useful content out there we need to spread the word about Student Mess and get users to upload as much relevant content as possible.
The more content available online the more it will help you!
Things you can do to help:
1)Send a quick e-mail around your university telling other students about the site.
2)Ask your professors to upload any content they think would useful to the site.
3)Upload any content yourself that you think would be useful
4)Tell your friends (the site has got a great community feature too!)
Our aim is to get this site packed full of useful information, the idea being medical students helping other medical students!
So lets make it happen.
