Their homepage has an item mentioning that their site has been blacklisted by the AAMC. Apparently, some medical school and residency applicants may have lifted sample essays from MedFools and unwisely used them in their own application.
Steering clear of this sticky issue, I wanted to point out a feature that looks quite helpful on this site: The downloadable scutsheets and fact sheets . These free resources can come in handy when gathering patient information and reminders of what to cover during the patient encounter. They're printable and convenient to stuff into your whitecoat pocket.
Subjects include scutsheets and fact sheets for:
- Medicine - General Wards - Pediatrics - OB/GYN - Psychiatry - USMLE (bacteria, fungus, and parasites charts)
Examples of some of these resources:
- H&P form for clerkships - http://www.medfools.com/downloads/megs-history-physical.pdf
- Peds Notes - http://www.medfools.com/downloads/pediatric_notes.pdf
- USMLE Parasites study chart - http://www.medfools.com/downloads/parasite.pdf
Give the site a once over and let me know what you think of this resource.
