Medicine Toolkit currently consists of two teaching components, "Bayes at the Bedside" and "Pocket Evidence" (2 apps in 1!).

Use over 175 likelihood ratios to apply Bayesian reasoning to clinical care in real-time! A little rusty on biostats? Use our case-based statistics review to refresh your memory on applying Bayes to patient care, and then turn to our teaching tutorial to learn about common errors in diagnostic reasoning and how to use Bayes' theorem to turn clinical pitfalls into teaching opportunities!

Can't keep all of the heart failure trials straight? Ever wonder just how the CHADS2 score came to be? Or feel at a loss when a resident cites a recent article you haven't seen, or a medical student asks what they should read that night? With Pocket Evidence, have summaries of over 440 review articles, consensus guidelines, landmark papers, and new and notable articles covering 70 topics in internal medicine available at your fingertips. Email the PubMed links to yourself and your team in real-time, and take a closer look at the literature that shapes how we practice medicine today.
