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.

Excellent ap!

I love this ap! It is the most useful, all-encompassing ap I have ever used. I use it constantly throughout my practice. It is easy to navigate and contains just the right amount of important information. Information is consistent with current guidelines for diagnosis and treatment. Great ap!
