APtheMD ,

Thank you for saving my life

Highly recommend to any medical student. Your glomerulonephritis episode has taught me more about kidneys than 1.5 years of postgraduate med. Already starting to feel better about heading out onto the wards!

Nursing students!!

This is not only great for medical students but also for nursing students!! Really informative and simple! Thanks 😄

AFriendlyFish ,

Wholesome and helpful

I think I might be in love with these two lasses. Genuinely adorable, always puts a smile on my face and helps me learn the high yield content my teachers expect I have somehow absorbed through osmosis on the wards. Thanks girls! I recommend you to everybody.
