Hi! I'm Jerome Pinguet, French general practitioner. This is the open notebook of my MD thesis. The subject is GP crowdsourced diagnosis. Since 2012 French GPs are asking each other questions on Twitter about diagnosis, treatments and daily practice shenanigans using the hashtag #DocTocToc.

This work will concentrate on diagnosis. It will try to demonstrate that an open discussion among physicians on a microblogging platform can efficiently reduce diagnostic uncertainty.

My thesis is supervised by Dr Pierre-André Bonnet, MD, from Aix-Marseille University.

I will try to follow the principles of open notebook science.
