  • What's going on guys!

  • J from MedSchoolInsiders.com.

  • In this video, we're going to go over the most useful apps on the iPad and iPhone for

  • med students.

  • Quick note about tablet devices; you do not necessarily need one for med school, however

  • they are very helpful, especially during your third and fourth year which is when you're

  • actually in the hospital and being evaluated by residents and attendings.

  • Their opinion of you is obviously very important.

  • Now, for some reason, if they see you on your phone, they assume that you're texting or

  • up to no good which is silly because you can be looking up information, studying flashcards

  • etc on your phone.

  • When you're on your iPad or similar tablet device, they assume that you are studying,

  • looking something up, reading a book etc, which again, I know it's silly because you

  • can be on Facebook or YouTube or whatever on your iPad.

  • Again, not necessary but something you should definitely keep in mind.

  • So anyways, let's get to it.

  • Let's first go over the apps that were most useful on the iPad.

  • So really quickly to give you guys a brief overview; I use reminders for keeping track

  • of assignments and due dates, notes for when I needed to jot down a quick idea, Evernote

  • is what I used when I was taking notes in class.

  • So this is my primary app that had all my notes, all my lab assignments, things like

  • that.

  • So, one of the great things about Evernote is any attachment you place in your note,

  • so for example, we have a PDF attached to lab 29, Evernote will actually search within

  • that document and display those results.

  • So that's a very powerful feature.

  • You all know that I'm a huge fan of Anki, so as you can see I have more than 2,000 cards

  • do.

  • Do as I say not as I do.

  • For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know that I recently matched, so I have

  • much less incentive these days to be keeping up on my Anki.

  • All med students need to know their Anatomy and my favorite Anatomy app is called essential

  • Anatomy 5.

  • What you can do is add muscles, arteries, veins etc.

  • And this is all 3d.

  • You can get a very good idea of how different structures are related to each other spatially

  • and you can select an item, so for example here we have the triceps, lateral head.

  • If we can press I, you get more information, origin, insertion, action things like that.

  • We can even fade everything else, so it really just stands out.

  • Insight Timer, this is my favorite app for guided meditations.

  • I will be releasing a future video on why you should all be meditating.

  • Now, in terms of note-taking, a lot of my friends actually like either Notability or

  • Note Shelf.

  • Notability is the more popular of the two.

  • You can either draw directly on a blank canvas like I did here.

  • These are actually embryology notes or you can also annotate on a PDF.

  • So you import the PDF into Notability and you can actually write on it.

  • The other app I liked was Note Shelf.

  • So again, if you have a stylus and this works for you, you can take notes.

  • I have not tried the new iPad pro but I know that that stylus in that system is going to

  • be, a lot better more detailed than this.

  • Another app that is really neat is called Duet.

  • It actually turns your iPad into an external monitor.

  • So if you plug in your iPad to your computer, and now my iPad is essentially an extra monitor.

  • And this is really useful when you're taking notes and when you want to have, you know,

  • notes on one screen and then your PowerPoint or other materials on the other screen.

  • So, one the iPhone, it is more of the same.

  • Again, I have reminders, notes, Evernote, Anki etc.

  • The one app I really wanted to show you guys it's called Scannable.

  • So again, I stopped taking notes on Noteability and Note Shelf because I found that using

  • a stylus like this, again, this is not the iPad pro, this is a regular iPad and using

  • a stylus like this was a little bit too clunky for me, so what I would do is I would actually

  • take notes on my small notebook.

  • So that I would use this app to essentially scan my notes.

  • So then I could actually take this and save it straight to my Evernote and if I had written

  • down anything here, Evernote would use its OCR technology to identify those words and

  • when I search for those items, they will actually show up on the scanned image which is pretty

  • incredible.

  • Thank you all so much for watching.

  • That is it for this video.
