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!

A great website for looking at ways to conduct medical examinations/practicals. Be warned – you sometimes have to search for comprehensive and quality videos.

Movies 4 Medics
Very good website created by a BSMS lecturer, with a lot of flash animation videos made by medical students about a variety of biomedical science topics. Novel teaching method!

An interesting forum covering everything from surviving medical school to passing exams and preparing for life as a junior doctor. Based in the US.

A Day in the Life of an FY1
The ‘A Day in the Life of an FY1’ course was designed by junior doctors in response to a perceived gap in professionalism training between graduation from medical school and the first day of work for Foundation Year 1 doctors.
The course can be implemented in any UK hospital trust induction week - there are resources and tutor guides for a half-day course which focuses on the professional skills required to work as a newly graduated FY1. Further information and contact details available on the website.

medicalschoolhq.net - Specialty Stories
Great set of podcasts containing interviews with different specialty doctors from the US, describing their specialty and how they work.
A few of the small bits and pieces are different from here in the UK, but it looks like a really useful resource for medical students and junior doctors who are looking for resources to help them plan their career.
