My Medical School Summary Notes

During my studies in at the University of Calgary Medical School, I've found making summary notes to be quite useful to making sure I understand the material, especially pre-exam.

My resources include the schemes in the Calgary "Black Book", my lecture notes, lecture content, Toronto Notes, UpToDate, Dr. Waechter's website, and various textbooks, including the Holy Grail of cardiovascular medicine: Lilly's "Pathophysiology of Heart Disease". I hope you find these notes helpful to your learning and studying as well.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to share your thoughts here.

2012 update: I've also been working to produce a medical student resource that actually explains concepts, instead of just listing them out. Check it out: The Calgary Guide to Understanding Disease (aka. "The Calgary Guide")

2016 update: this is in no way related to medicine (except for maybe the "pearls" part), but I've also started a socially-oriented business, an online pearl jewellery store that donates a pair of pearl earrings to underprivileged women for every sale we make. Check us out on our website or on facebook! We'd love to have your support!
