Dobbs Newsletter

Dobbs is the exclusive (and free!) forum for Malaysian doctors which we have maintained for 12 years now.

This is the latest update/newsletter:

Greetings Dobber

I trust this email finds you well. Time again for an update on what’s new in Dobbs, your unique Internet based community for Malaysian doctors by Malaysian doctors.

Dobbs forum is organised into Groups, each with its individual forum. Since the last new group added,Heartbeat, which caters to Cardiology related matters, we have three new Groups:

1) Pulmonology – for discussion, learning and sharing on things related to Respiratory medicine. The group’s enthusiastic administrator is Dr. Jamalul Azizi who has really sparked much interest with his exciting and informative posts..
2) HaemOnc – for postings related to Haematology and Oncology. Your group administrators are yours truly and Dr. LF Ng who is a Malaysian medical oncologist currently based in Australia. Ask your haematology and oncology related questions here!
3)  Top Secret – this is a private and hidden group forum for test posting e.g. if you want to test posting embedded videos and images without disturbing or cluttering the main Dobbs forum. The group is visible only to those who have joined it. All Dobbers are welcome to join this test area, for more information, see this thread.

Our Forum discussions continue to grow and there are now over 1180 threads in  the Forums. You can sort the forums by Last Active (the default), Most posts or Unreplied threads. You can search for topics of interest using the search box at the upper right of the main Forums page.

Here are some Forum threads which might interest you:
