8. Living Medical Textbooks
Living Medical Textbooks by Projects in Knowledge is an application that for some reason has gotten little to no hype in the App Store. There are actually 5 Living Medical Textbooks, ranging in topics from Diabetes to Multiple Sclerosis. The apps offer CME activities, but what makes them particularly appealing is they are “dynamic” — meaning the chapters are updated when noteworthy new medical data or research is introduced in medicine.
So basically, if you download the “Diabetes” textbook app, you can be assured that you are being kept abreast of new medical knowledge and clinical studies regarding Diabetes — the app updates and adds chapters periodically. For those not even concerned with doing CME activities this textbook app is a great resource for clinical knowledge. Along with updated clinical content, the apps contain basic knowledge of the disease pathologies they are based on.
