Osmosis has been covered in Fast Company and The Health Care Blog, among other venues, and has won awards from the Institute for Excellence in Education, PhD Innovation Initiative, and DreamIt Ventures. Here's what a few of our early users had to say:
"Osmosis has completely changed my approach to studying, learning, and retaining information" - Alan, medical student at Johns Hopkins
“I wish I could have used Osmosis from day one of medical school!” – Malorie, medical student at UPenn and Rhodes Scholar
So enjoy using Osmosis and stay tuned for many more upcoming features and announcements, including our unique web platform.
In the meantime, remember: Don't Study It. Osmose It!
What's New in Version 2.1
Osmosis is AMAZING!! I have been a fellow user since my first semester of medical school when the app was not even half of what it is today. I still liked it then because it gave me a different approach to questions and allowed me to practice the topics I was covering in lectures, all while I was grabbing a coffee, or walking over from point A to point B, and even from the comfort of my own bed while going to sleep. When Shiv and the rest of the Osmosis team launched Osmosis Prime, I really didn't think it could get better...ohh but it did! After switching over to Osmosis Prime and inputting my information and test dates as well as my STEP 1 date, the app has allowed me o practice relevant material that goes hand in hand with my schedule of lectures, exams, and more! If you don't have this app on your phone yet and haven't joined, you must give it a try. The best part of it all is that you get a free trial when you join allowing you full access to the app so that you can determine whether or not it is something you want to continue using or not. If I had to rate this app I would give it 5 stars for uniqueness, efficiency, user friendly, engagig, and FUN! Who said learning can't be easy and fun?!?!
Osmosis is AMAZING
Osmosis has saved me tons of time generating questions and flash-cards and generated a long-term retention model based only on the content I’ve learned.
Osmosis uses your lecture outlines and slides (that you, your classmates, or your institution can upload into our calendar) and automatically recognizes terms to generate flashcards of STEP-pertinent facts, multiple choice questions from several huge question banks and more! Every medical word you click on of your class slides/outlines will pull up the wikipedia page, images, references from First Aid, 3D anatomy files, and picmonic links in the page!
The flashcards enter a SRS (better than that of anki) to schedule flashcards and questions on your computer, tablet, or phone to ask you right when you forget!
This is a centralized organized platform that allows you to organize less and study more!
Medical school is by no means "easy". We struggle each day to try and memorize/learn the information that is hauled towards us. Osmosis allows the student using it to take this information, spread it out on this platform, and access the information in a way that not only makes sense, but that will also promote active learning. I recommend that this application be used by as many medical students as possible. Although there is a lot of information out there, osmosis has made me realize that there are just as many students and professionals in medicine. Thus, by working together through Osmosis, medical education can become a fun, active, and enlightening experience.
