Sharing Medical Flashcards

A while ago, I posted about how flashcards had basically saved my degree. I had used hardcopy flashcards, but then found some awesome and free applications on iTunes. Digital flashcards are more mobile, eco-friendly, cheap, and quicker to make. I started off with Quizlet, but I actually prefer the functionality of Brainscape – it lets you rate how well you know every card from 1-5.

I do not have that many decks of my own yet, but I decided to share them here. Remember that these are tailored specifically to the South African syllabus, so approaches and drugs may differ, but you are welcome to use them.

If you have flashcards of your own that you’d like to share, you’re welcome to post your links here. I believe that the best way to get through medical school is by helping each other with resources. I’ll update this page as I add new decks. Also take note that these decks are works in progress – I edit them as I go along.

      Hi Mo! Sadly, I do not. I have been meaning to make more, but I just don’t seem to find the time. I’m so glad you like them, though!
