“Excellent source for refreshing skills and knowledge and keeping things fresh for uncommon cases. I am a military medic and not a clinician, but sometimes in the field we have to be both. Great app!!!!!”

“I think any student doing a rotation in emergency medicine would benefit from these case scenarios. It provides a practical approach to a disease while highlighting the points that are often tested on USMLE.”
