Do you need evidence-based answers to clinical questions at the point of care? Have you been unable to get answers because you did not have online computer access or a Wi-Fi or 3G/4G data connection? The First Consult iPhone/iPad app is your solution. The app allows First Consult’s trusted answers to be stored on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. A data connection is required for the initial content download and content updates, but is not required to use the app itself – making First Consult’s answers available anytime, anywhere.
First Consult is featured point-of-care content found within ClinicalKey. In addition to providing access to First Consult’s point-of-care content, ClinicalKey provides online access to leading books, journals, and review articles.

What's New in Version 1.1.4
Perfect for MS2 and MS3 so far
In the second year of medical school we begin to create the 'differential diagnosis' for the first time in our careers. Without this app, you'll waste a lot of time on the Internet trying to find what you need! I had to create an account through my university on Access Medicine to be able to log into First Consult. Contact your librarian if you need help!
Great for FNP
I am in FNP school and this app is great. It would be greater if you could also type in symptoms to get a diagnosis because you have to know the diagnosis to look it up. Once u have it, it will give a list of DD. Definitely a must have for the novice. I use it a lot when I study, not so much at clinicals.
Great resource to keep handy for DDx, Tx, work ups, etc. It is easy to use and presents info in easy-to-navigate format. I find myself using more often than UpToDate because it's more to-the-point and POC oriented.
