As a trainee Paediatrician this app is brilliant. It has been invaluable for my exam preparation, and I'm sure I will continue to use it throughout my career. It is easy to navigate, so can be quickly referred to whilst at home, on the ward, in clinic etc. A must for all medics, medical students, and those interested in genetics! Well done to those who made this app.
