#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!

All about Asthma - Asthma UK
This is one of those patient directed sites which I found really useful during revision. Good for learning the different inhaler types and how to use them. A good adjunct are the joint guidelines for managing asthma - http://www.brit-thoracic.org.uk/guidelines/asthma-guidelines.aspx.

Fun little website that guides through 10 chest x-ray cases.
