What's New

Version 5.11

Thank you for using Medscape. Update to the latest version to see all of the app's new features:

Medscape Consult: Medical students can now access and post in Consult! If you prefer to see physician posts only, simply turn off the "Show Medical Student Posts" feature. Medscape Consult users are now able to see all of the responses they have made to Consult posts directly from the Profile page.

Reference: You can now enable Night Mode to make reference articles easier to read in low-light conditions. In addition, the new slider feature allows you to change the font size on articles to suit your preference.

This update also includes minor fixes and design tweaks to optimize your experience. As always, thank you for your feedback. More exciting features are on the way!

Ads make it very annoying!

MD Mauri

I first downloaded Medscape when I was a medical student. I have used it many times in the past, but now I tend to open the app as a last resource. Why? Because of the annoying ads! I’m thinking about paying an uptodate subscription and say farewell to MedScape for good if they don’t remove the ads. We are medical professionals seeking information for the good of our patients, not to pass the time because we are bored. I hope that clarifies my disappointment and reminds you of the purpose of this app and any other source of medical information. At least come with a solution like an advertisement-free version that is not free...

The ADS! Hate it!


Edit: Still can’t deal with the ads, now it’s on the bottom of the green and five times randomly in the text. I don’t use Medscape as frequently as I used to but it still remains an annoyance. Once again, I’d pay for an ad free experience.

I love Medscape and I use it daily but I cannot deal with the ads anymore. They are intrusive and so irritating. I'll gladly pay a fee to use this app without the ads. It's taking me a lot longer to find the info I need in a hurry because of these adverts. Won't someone think of the healthcare professionals??
