Online learning aids

The internet has become a great resource for learning medicine. How much better now is it to watch a developmental examination or to hear actual murmurs rather than reading it described in a textbook. New resources are shared everyday on social media. Look for them on #FOAMed which stands for 'Free Open Access Medical Education'
