    Medical Rotations Life Saver

    As an MS-3 on the cusp of wrapping up my third year, I have to say this was my GO TO reference source for clinical rotations. A lot of people will say resources like UpToDate and Epocrates are the gold standards, and while they are incredible, neither possesses the ease of use, scope of information, or clinical tools that this app has. I have a paid subscription to those other sources through my school, but this is essentially the only reference I use and it’s completely free for anyone. I would 100% recommend this app to anyone and you better believe I won’t be without it next year, as a resident, or as an attending.

    Our goto medical reference; prescribed and preferred by docs

    Our doctor friend referred us to it many years ago. Then I set up an account. Since then I haven’t met a doc who doesn’t frequently refer to it and approve of it—not only for authoritative information but also (for docs, anyway) entertaining news. (I’m not sophisticated enough to get entertainment from obtuse medical journals. 🤓) Anyway, it’s handy to be able to find anything and everything medical in one easy place. Now I can often know not only what but why.

    People should stop whining!

    I have used MANY apps and this is one of the best. If there is subscription, people complaint. If there is Ad, people complaint. So how do they make money while you are making money by using the app? C’mon people, nothing is free. Medscape is great in a way to keep it free and accessible for all of you “health care professionals”. If you want subscriptions, buy lexicomp. Message to the developers, thanks for making it an helpful app and Free. I am pretty sure alot of people dont mind the ads as long as it not too distracting.

    A must-have app; can be better

    I am a medical student and I use Medscape on a daily basis; it’s the quickest and best way to look up or check medical terms. Lots of functionality. Great. Please update the app to have multi-task and split-screen/overlay on iPadOS. It’s very important for me to simultaneously take notes or to have my reference book besides Medscape and see both. Also being able to have multiple windows is really useful. Thanks

    Updated - fixed (Keeps crashing)

    Normally I love this app, but since the last update it crashes every single time I try to open it. Even tried deleting and reinstalling but not change. They need to fix this update big. —————————————————- Update: they fixed the bug! My #1 medical reference app again!
