Internet Resources for Medical Students – The Full List

Dave TownsendArticles1 Comment

Listed below are 180 different online resources recommended by numerous medical students & doctors. Recently I have been asked to write an article on anything to do with medical school and medical students for Avant in my role as a ASAC member. Sticking with what I know, I decided to put together an article on online resources for students. So I put the call out on Facebook & Twitter and within a couple of hours I had the list below!

I have chosen 10 key ones to include in the article, but I wanted to find a way of sharing all of the links with everyone so here it is, the full list of 180 sites. I will update it as I get any new submissions, so feel free to comment below or drop me an email at if you have something to add and I’ll update as often as I can. There are still a bunch of resources I want to add like the great “members only” resources from ACRRM, RACGP & RACP but will add those when I have time. And if this isn’t enough, make sure you check out the list of resources & blogs at Life In the Fastlane and the huge database of medical websites and social media resources at Webicina.

My sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to this list including (in no particular order): Melanie Clothier, Penny Wilson, Natalie May, Ewen McPhee, Stephanie Chapple, Scott Lewis, Audrey, Chyna Williamson, Char Seneviratne, Elizabeth Morrison, Julian Georges, Brian Fernandes, Susanne Nicholson, Georgina Taylor, Chloe Abbott, Chiranjeev Narula, Zoë Stewart, Eliza Burke-Polden, David Bui, Anmol Khanna, Jason Wu, Vanessa Hewitt, Sam Phillips, Helena Chan, Hester Stokes, Felicity Rees, Harriet Pickering, Tom Scodellaro, Annan Lloyd, Savannah Morrison, Jess Barker, Tara Naige

To suggest additional sites for the list, please either Email Me, contact me via Twitter or add a comment at the bottom of the page.

Finally, if you’re an Australian medical student, please complete my 15 minute BMedSci(Hons) survey on social media use in med school – you could win one of two $250 gift cards. Thanks!
