#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!

A practice question website for examinations. Lots of questions available covering a variety of topics. Answers can be quite long and warbling.

Another practice question website. Useful because of the volume of questions, but the answers are sometimes a not in keeping with other sources.

In my opinion this is the best of all the practice question websites. It is also the cheapest! The questions are based around current national guidelines, and the answers are concise and extremely useful for revision purposes.
