A Call for Good Online Resources

Just thought I would put this out there...while wading through the mire today online in the hopes of finding good pathology, embryology, histology, and all the other 'ology's' out there I decided that I am tired of shoddy internet hits and questionable sources.

If anyone can suggest some good sites for me as I endeavor to find supplemental info via the internet that would be great. Feel free to email me or put it in the comments section.

I am already dialed with and emedicine so preferably some other (free) sites would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you blogworld, in advance.

The site was created by a person at my med school. Disclaimer: I never actually used it. But I heard it has some good stuff. In particular in studying for Step 1. For path you might consider Robbins.

Thank ye and ye (as they say here on the Emerald Isle). I will check them both out. Yes, Robbins is the bid-ness for path.

I didn't want to spring for a path text but that one is pretty darn sexy.

Also: re textbooks, if you know anyone from or going to Malaysia, Singapore or India, give them some money to get the textbooks for you. I got a bunch of my textbooks that way, less than half the price. Sometimes they have a paper cover instead of hardback, but being a student you deal with that :-) Even if they are posted it still tends to be cheaper. I am not aware of any websites where you can order them through from there but Amazon has lots of 2nd hands ones as well.

I have a few useful sites at the very bottom of my blogroll.

Check with your school to see if the library subscribes to certain gold standard resources. Many schools stateside offer searchable access to hundreds of textbooks (including classic ones like Robbins, Harrison's, & more), journals, and databases. I imagine there is something similar available in the UK.

This does not replace textbooks (especially during the first two years and if you like to write in your books), but for specific questions it is wonderful to be able to type in a phrase and see salient results from multiple sources with a single click.
