PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Comments Welcome

Greetings BMC Readers,

We hope to hear from you regarding our recent publication. Thoughts? Comments? Questions? Personal Experiences.

I think this research may appeal to educators and researchers who have an interest in professionalism education and the hidden curriculum of medical education. We also feel the average clinician will enjoy reading some of the student professionalism narratives in the Supplemental Document. These can be quite eye opening to read.
