I'm disappointed that there does not seem to be a section on communication, I would have thought that this was regarded as a very important area of medicine.

No obvious musculo-skeletal section other than rheumatology. Otherwise quite interesting

Easy to use. The Gastro section very good. Highlighted a number of hot papers and landmark studies. The Faculty comments were additionally useful and all from key PI's in their respective fields.

We'd be interested to have a better idea of exactly what the poster of the first comment means by 'communication'. If they mean communication between doctors and patients, they should be able to find papers on this topic in the 'Quality & safety in medical practice' Section (http://www.f1000medicine.com/browse/9362). If, however, they mean knowledge transfer/implementation science, they might be interested to know that we are preparing to add a Section on this topic in the near future. Regarding the second comment, we'd be interested to know what other musculo-skeletal Sections would be perceived as useful. Suggestions can be emailed to editorial@f1000medicine.com
