Abstract

Medical students are precious seeds for better future medical research. Case reports writing may represent a relatively simple first step for beginners.

Many obstacles stand against developing fruitful research environment in Syria. Increasing awareness to research productivity in Syria along with comparative analysis is discussed in this article.
