http://wikidoc.org/index.php/Microchapter_templates This page serves as the skeleton of your microchapters. It contains standardized language to unify the textbook. Follow these as you write your pages. Click on the respective links to find individual language for each specific microchapter.

  • This is a link on guidelines for content:

http://www.wikidoc.org/index.php/Help:General_guidelines_on_creating_chapters_and_microchapters This page serves to give you an idea of what the goal of each microchapter is and what content is appropriate for each microchapter.

Plan

The plan of action for the Differential diagnosis project is find out all the possible causes of a symptom or disease and arrange them systematically into three categories - most common causes, causes by organ systems and causes in alphabetical order. Go to the page Differential diagnosis project and there you will find all the instructions on how to proceed with the project. Once we are done with the symptom or disease it has to be listed in the completed signs and symptoms page to make sure no other research fellow will work on the completed topics again.

Secondary Task

All the "Causes" listed on the page should be "BLUE". It means internal links exist for all the causes. We should go through each and every cause and see if that page is arranged according to the structured guidelines. If not try to arrange it perfectly. Please follow theMicrochapter template and guidelines templates and arrange the chapters accordingly.

Click on the word "search" instead of "go" and see if the word appears anywhere on WikiDoc.
If it does appear on WikiDoc, evaluate why the link is not working.
