      Dear Dr. Shilpa,

      Thanks, not only for taking the time to give feedback, but also for providing additional motivation to continue this endeavor. I was concerned whether merely providing links to documents would benefit readers. I guess those fears were misplaced.

      You may also indicate topics/ broad areas for future posts using the options listed elsewhere on this blogsite.

      Regards,
      Dr. Roopesh

      Dear Someone,

      The formula provided in the article ‘Sample size calculation: Cross-sectional studies’ will suffice.

      The formula is 4pq/l^2

      Dear Asma,

      Conducting a cross-sectional study will yield the prevalence.

      What is your study population, and is it a community based or hospital based study?

      Regards,
      Dr. Roopesh

    Dear Sir,

    I’m an MBBS graduate who’s qualified NEET PG 2018 with an AIRank of 8002.
    I’ve always been very interested in community medicine. My specific fields of interest are epidemiology and public health, infectious and emerging diseases, and international health.

    With all this in mind, how are the job products with an MD Comm Med?

    Also, at my rank, which are some good colleges (for Comm Med) which I could apply for?
    CMC is a dream of mine but unlikely to happen, I guess.

    Thank you 🙂

      Dear Kaustav,

      Thanks for writing in!

      Congratulations on your rank!

      Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the All India ranking and seat allocation system.

      I suggest you PM me on facebook for the other query.

      Best wishes and regards,

      Dr. Roopesh
