As part of their back to school promotion, Epocrates, is giving away its popular Epocrates Essentials App for free to qualified medical students.

This promotion begins on August 1st, and is for a limited time only, concluding on August 31st. Epocrates Essentials is a $159 value that provides a handy clinical reference suite including the ability to search for various drugs and diseases.

Simply go to the product page, select your medical school and mobile platform, and then click “Get It Now”. From there log into the website with your Epocrates ID or create an account to gain access to the app for free.

Epocrates is a company that has a stated mission statement of enabling healthcare providers to deliver better patient care by providing the most accessible and reliable clinical information through the use of state-of-the-art mobile technology.

The iMedicalApps team has previously reviewedthe Epocrates Essentials app for the iPhone. In that review we noted that the app has, among other things:

  • Massive amounts of information from a reputed source in the mobile medical field.
  • Epocrates Rx version – contains a great set of tools for free – Drug Interactions, Pill Identifier, Drug Info, MedMath.
  • Overall User Interface is clean and quick, allowing you to quickly look up information at the point of care.

Medical students at accredited schools who do not currently have this app should definitely check it out. Additionally, current medical students who already have this app can still take advantage of this promotion. Epocrates will extend their subscription for another year for free.

    Will Epocrates extend their free Essentials offer to residents enrolled in accredited residency programs, or is it confined to medical students only ?
