The Family Medicine Study Guide is live

Created as a 'study buddy' for family medicine curriculums, the Family Medicine Study Guide is live and available today on Apple & Android. The Family Medicine Study Guide was founded by Dr. Daniel Léger, assistant professor of family medicine and academic program director at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University.

Written by physicians, the Family Medicine Study Guide is a portable curriculum that includes 50 original case studies and over 250 questions to help motivate, guide and assist you in your studying. 

Léger believes that engaging students with "outside of the box" teaching methods encourages creativity, fuels passion, and complements traditional didactic teaching methods. The goal of the Study Guide is to enhance the user's knowledge of Family Medicine topics in a compelling way.

The app's three-prong approach touts:

  1. Learn through application: Each case tests you on key points about diagnosing and managing common conditions.  Links to additional resources and guidelines allow you to explore topics in further detail in order to enhance your learning.
  2. "Clinical Pearls" emphasize key learning points: Each case includes a few Clinical Pearls that offer quick reminders and tricks to help commit key information to memory.
  3. Test yourself with "Rapid Fire" questions: Short on time? Rapid-fire questions quiz you on random topics in Family Medicine. They're a great way to improve spontaneous recall.

The Family Medicine Study Guide was created as a non-profit project. 100% of the authors' revenue will be used to ensure the sustainability of the app and be donated to various charities around the world.
