Osmosis is an online medical school resource that incorporates both videos, visuals, and quick key facts about major medical topics. I personally do a lot better when I can see a visual of something and apply that visual to concepts that I learn in class. Osmosis is great for this because each topic has a video that draws out what the video is describing. The organization of the videos and topics really drew me in. Osmosis organizes their videos by system or major topic (immunology, biochemistry, etc), and then dives deeper into physiology, pathology, and pharmacology. This style really makes it easy to search for a topic and see other related topics to what you are trying to learn about.
My favorite feature of Osmosis is that it references specific pages or lectures from other major board prep resources. This makes it a lot easier to use, and a lot less scary to start a new board prep resource. Repetition is key, so if I can listen to a topic explained in a different way, but still use the board prep resources that I have been using as a reference, it really helps. Osmosis also has a bunch of quiz questions after each topic. You can answer them after reviewing the video or add them to a personalized deck to study later.
A lot of the videos are very short, so it’s a great resource to use if you want a quick recap on all the important aspects of a disease. Searching the internet or flipping through textbook pages can get monotonous, so it’s nice to have a video resource that is quick and easy to use.
