MEDICAL APPS ON MY PHONE!

Whether you’re in the hospital on the wards or in the clinic, your smart phone is your best friend. Use it wisely! Here’s a quick overview of some of the apps I have come across so far.

All of the mentioned files and applications are free unless otherwise mentioned.

 

These are some of the medical apps that I like to use regularly. Please note that depending on your phone (android or iPhone) you may or may not have access to all of the listed applications.

  1. Clinical Skills
  2. Dok Notes 
  3. AgileMD
  4. Medscape 
  5. Epocrates (for $$ if you want the ‘plus’ version)
  6. UptoDate (for $$ or school mobile subscription)
  7. Osmosis (for $$, study tool)

 

I also like to download PDF textbooks and handbooks on my phone for easy reference. They’re also very useful if you want to study/review a few topics on the road, especially if you’ve just seen a few interesting cases on these same conditions. It helps to consolidate the theory you learn and helps you develop your clinical acumen.

The books that I currently have on my phone were downloaded for free off of good old Google. I literally just typed the book’s name with a “pdf” at the end and voila! Here’s the list with the download links:

  1. Practical Guide to the Care of the Medical Patient
  2. Pocket Medicine 4th Ed.
  3. Bates Pocket Guide to Physical Examination & History Taking:
  4. Netter’s Anatomy Flashcards

 

Other Mobile Apps that are also popular:

  1. Omnio
  2. Lexicomp
  3. Lanthier  (for $$, uptadted Internal Medicine Textbook app)
  4. Pepid (for $$)
  5. Micromedex (for $$)
