Medscape is an app that provides references on various diseases as well as pharmacology. This is one of the clinical tools I use the most for its accuracy; I find that the reference materials have enough depth that is still easy to go through quickly. One of its most attractive features is how eas.....

Sadly can’t have the app run side by side another app. This would be so useful as I could be taking notes on o.....
