Medical Terms
Here's my collection of medical terminologies (conditions/treatments/medications/procedures/diseases) Both by episode and by alpha-order. I've started defining some of them but... the process is a slow and not so steady one because RL's getting in the way. ;) There are probably hundreds of spelling erorrs in there, please ignore them. heh

Please don't copy and repost elsewhere.

Because it's way to long...

ETA: okay I guess not. Here's only by episode order (because together the post is "too large" and LJ wont' elt me post.

Inaugural Post
Hello, and welcome to medical_house.

I basically started this community because I noticed that while a number of people had episode transcripts and screen captures, and all of that business, no one seems to have made a community about the actual medical terms used on the show, how House and his ducklings go about their diagnosis, and other such things plotty.

Considering the start of gen_house, I figured it would help to have reliable medical summaries of each of the episodes in question.

However, it is important to note that I myself have no training as a medical doctor. I haven't even attended medical school, nor do I wish to. However, considering that there is a decided lack of plot-based fiction in the House fandom, most likely due to the fact that people feel uncomfortable about writing fiction where they don't know the correct procedures that would be done on the show, I decided making this community would be a good idea.

Also, I am a poor, lowly college student, and don't have money to blow to make this community a paid one. As a result, I can't do polls like I would like, so I will have to improvise.

1. Is there anything you would like to see in this community?

2. Should any medical summaries posted to this community be:

A) copied-and-pasted from a script in order to show evidence that something was included in an episode?
B) the bare facts of what happens in the episode to show what happens without clutter?
C) Something else? Please comment.
