MY RECOMMENDATION: YES
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION PAGE: Daily Dose of Medical Knowledge
WEB ADDRESS: The publisher is Brim. The web address...can't find it! I suspect it's generated by an application and is not resident on the web. But it is indeed active.
BLOG DESCRIPTION: Daily Dose is just what the Doctor Ordered! Written by an Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society member & internal medicine physician, Daily Dose delivers a medical fact a day straight to your Kindle. Most medical professionals strive to stay current in their medical knowledge and Daily Dose is here to help you along the way!
Facts will range the gamut of medical knowledge, from lab tests and their uses to patient management and diagnosis. Nurses, medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, residents, and physicians will all enjoy getting a medical tidbit daily. And even though Daily Dose caters to those in the healthcare professions, it can be enjoyable to anyone with an interest in medicine and health.
Studying for the USMLE, shelf exams, and specialty boards has never been more fun with Daily Dose!
*Please do not use Daily Dose as a substitute for your own medical judgement. Non-healthcare professionals are encouraged to not use Daily Dose to diagnose or treat themselves but to instead see their own physician.*
MY REVIEW: This blog is not for the layperson, but rather for pharmacists, nurses, nurse assistants, anyone in the medical field. Well-written (as far as I can tell, being a layperson!) and informative. Highly recommended.
