#FOAMed (Free Open Access Meducation)

The internet is a gold mine for Medical Students. Encyclopaedias, interactive tutorials, guideline databases and question banks are all online in abundance. Most junior doctors will have a list of their favourite websites - the ones that got them through Finals!

The #FOAMed community is growing rapidly with numerous websites and lots of Twitter streams of new and innovative medical education resources. We are compiling a list of all the best online resources, with ratings and tips on how to get the best from each website. Vitally, we want YOU to contribute to this database so that we make sure we find even the most elusive online gems - if you have any links that you find invaluable then submit them using our simple form.

Make sure you follow us on Twitter (@OSCE_Aid) to keep up with the latest OSCE #FOAMed!

Wongs Virology
Looks like a good reference website for any questions about viruses and their effects. Good depth of information.

British Infection Association
Lots of useful infection guidelines for general revision. Specifically for OSCEs, the fever int he returned traveler guideline goes through very explicitly how to take a history for these patients - the questions that need to be asked are different to those of other histories.
