can med students answer questions on healthtap, or just licensed physicians?

Licensed physicians: A select group of medical students can do the research and propose answers for questions on HealthTap. Next, their answers are verified, edited, and approved by licensed physicians on HealthTap. Finally, when such an answer is posted, an acknowledgment line appears under the answer, crediting the medical student for his assistance. HealthTap doctors enjoy mentoring medical students.

The quality of their answers far exceeded my expectations so far. I think it's a great idea and I look forward to seeing more great answers from HealthTap University students.
