Osmosis teaches faculty how today’s health professional students learn to become tomorrow’s health professionals. If you want to remain relevant as an educator—and have fun growing while you do—then I strongly encourage you to engage fully with the teaching and learning power of the Osmosis platform.
Osmosis really provides a lot of memory hooks for you. You can choose to use all of Osmosis’s flashcards, all of your own flashcards, or you can mix the two. The base idea is that using spaced repetition everyday is creating your foundation.
Osmosis allows me to devote more time to leadership positions and my personal life while maintaining my academics. To be honest, my grades have improved only 4-6%, but I am able to do this spending significantly less time than I was previously. And the lecture analysis feature is such a powerful tool that allows me to not just see generic information, but a study aid specifically for my class. It's the whole package!
Osmosis is the best tool for staying organized and integrating classwork with high yield resources, all in one platform. The Osmosis Flashcards are not only extremely relevant, but they also feature cross-references to additional resources. These flashcards, in conjunction with the Osmosis spaced repetition method, have helped me to remember details that I studied from past semesters. I feel that it will help me be more prepared when I begin preparing for Step 1.
As a non-traditional student, Osmosis has really helped me with streamlining my study time. I have other obligations outside of medical school, to include family and military commitments. I find that the best way to study is by creating questions and then practicing them over and over. The spaced repetition, particularly with the flash cards, also helps me in the days leading up to an exam. I utilized Anki for the first block of medical school but then decided to utilize the flashcard function in Osmosis. I find that it is more streamlined and I don't have to worry about syncing my devices. I have the Osmosis app downloaded on all my devices and use the flashcards/questions when I can't be in front of my computer. I've been able to significantly reduce the amount of study time I put in while still maintaining great scores, particularly in Anatomy. The questions and the links to First Aid are probably the most helpful.
Osmosis is great for integrative learning and cutting down time on making study products! I love that it gives me the ability to annotate slides and create flash cards from slides that can be viewed from my phone.
