mnemonic, noun: a short rhyme, phrase, or other mental technique for making information easier to memorize [from Greek mnēmonikos, "relating to memory"]. Med Mnemonics is a unique learning tool with over 1700 of them.
Mnemonics got me through medical school and the USLME steps. Wherever you are within the allied health professions - medical school, nursing school, NP school, PA school, residency, and beyond - you can improve your knowledge base in the short and long term with these key associative memory aids.
Medical Mnemonics puts 1796 clever acronyms, rhymes, and memory tricks on your iPhone or iPod Touch, covering topics ranging from Anatomy and Biochemistry to Pharmacology and Surgery.
The database is fully searchable and can be quickly filtered by discipline and by system. Create a Favorites list, and search and filter it similarly.
The best mnemonics can be those you make yourself. Add your own mnemonics to the database, where they'll appear seamlessly alongside those which come with the program. Submit them instantaneously to the Medical Mnemonics server for review by an MD (that's me!) and inclusion in the next version.
You can email any mnemonic to a colleague from within Medical Mnemonics. He or she can view it within the email or add it to their own copy of Medical Mnemonics with a single click.
Updates will be free for life and will include new mnemonics submitted by users (that's you!) and added as we all continue learning together.
Every mnemonic is MD reviewed, but we're only human. If you find a mistake, email us; we will pay a $5 bounty per substantive mistake found to the first reporter of that mistake!
What's New in Version 17
* Medical Mnemonics now requires iOS 5 or later *
• Added 57 new mnemonics!
• Bold/Italics/Underline are now supported when adding and editing mnemonics (iOS 6.0+)
• iPhone 5 display support
• Now only mnemonics you create or edit are backed up to iCloud, saving valuable cloud storage space
This is the best one location scource for medical mnemonics that Ive found to date at the apple site. There is a favorites tagging, and you can edit a mnemonic if its not exactly to your liking, a big plus for personalizing entries and if you know of a mnemonic not in the app you can enter your own.
The negatives, cant save your modified or personal entries. And this app has the irritating habit of occasionally opening up with nothing but a blank WHITE screen easily fixed by closing the app, going to the desk top and opening it from there. Minor in my mind and Im quite glad to have the app and not have to enter ever single app I find on the internet.
Love It, Use It All The Time
My only complaint is that if I add my own mnemonic, it isn't applied across devices and so I have to enter my personal mnemonics twice and sometimes on different days in different locations depending if I have my iPad with me or not. I have trouble formatting my mnemonics, though, I don't know if that is just me.
It is good bit not excellent
I would say that if they have more explanation and more mnemonics this app will be amazing!
Hopefully next version will have more stuff for medical students not only nurses. Good idea though.
