This site aims to draw together as many resources as possible that can help students survive med school. This list is not by a stretch exhaustive and we welcome your suggestions and encourage you to share the treasures you find in the true spirit of FOAMed.
This site was created by Ali Gould (@intransition2, +Ali), when she was a third year medical student at the University of Melbourne, Australia. She now moderates the site as a junior doctor, and welcomes student input and initiatives for collaboration and assistance.
We believe in sharing. This means you can download and use anything you want – or even edit, rewrite and publish it on your own site – as long as you attribute us as the source, and link back to our site, or the original site quoted in this site. We also love to hear from you so please let us know how your using our resources!
Disclaimer: All links on this site are intended for supplementary educational purposes only, and primarily for medical students. No clinical decision making should be based solely on one resource, and certainly not if they are not in keeping with the current guidelines in your institution, state, country. Also keep in mind that FOAMed does not attempt to replace your medical curriculum, nor can you do away with paid medical education. It just serves beautifully as an adjunct.
If you’ve stumbled upon this site as a patient, always follow your doctor’s advice and never change your medical decision-making based on anything you find through this site. While all care is taken to choose reliable resources, all FOAMed creators are responsible for their own work. Please let us know if you think we have linked to an inappropriate site/resource.
