Welcome to ClinDesk: Opening Medical Education

Bringing open source resources to medicine.

New: Try out clinical calculators and medical calculator apps.

Including Framingham risk, MELD, Ranson, CHADS2, TIMI, Warfarin dosing …

ClinDesk comprises a team of senior medical students and resident physicians who are passionate about opening the otherwise closed world of medical knowledge.

Soon, we'll be launching lots of Creative Commons-licensed medical resources, including:

  • Free medical education videos, through our sister-site White Coat Academy
  • Open USMLE prep materials, including a Goljan-esque Step I review series
  • An interactive physical exam tutorial featuring gunner-style facts (remember Duroziez's sign?)
  • An H&P/SOAP note wizard, with hints on important acronyms and diagnostics
  • The Vaccinate Doctors Initiative, advocating for influenza vaccines

Hopefully we can change the face of medical education. If you're interested in helping out, please get in touch!

Stay tuned,

Nick Semenkovich
