Universal Notes is a study tool unlike any other ever developed. For the first time, everything a medical student needs to know before they become a doctor is coming together in one place. The organizational framework for the educational content is competency-based and intuitive, allowing for rapid identification of curricular material. Unlike other “crowd sourced” information sources, Universal Notes is being meticulously built by medical students and medical educators who understand the processes of accreditation, the requirements for licensing exams, and most importantly, the primary goal of exceptional patient care.
Universal Notes is not only a learning tool for students, but also a powerful teaching tool for faculty and residents. This portable curriculum is built specifically for the educational needs of students, and helps guide physician educators as they teach to the appropriate competencies and educational level of their students. No more looking through multiple sources to find the best description. No more searching for the right picture. Universal Notes will have it at all at your fingertips.
"Universal Notes has really enhanced the way I approach studying - by making my own competency goals, I feel more accountable for my learning and therefore more dedicated to committing these concepts to memory for my future practice as a physician."
--MS-3 Hofstra North Shore-Long Island Jewish School of Medicine
"Universal Notes is extremely easy to use. I use the app on the wards to quiz myself, and use some of the competencies to make sure I’m learning all of the various topics that I’m expected to know. This has become an invaluable tool!"
-MS-4 Morehouse School of Medicine
"Not only is the website really easy to navigate and interactive, but the ability to add notes of your own under each topic area facilitates active learning and retention as students will come back to that topic and see the associations they've made. It's really great!"
-MS-4 Hofstra North Shore-Long Island Jewish School of Medicine
"Universal Notes is not your run-of-the-mill board review series source - the site has a clean, easy format that is reminiscent of a mobile app and has instant gratification. Furthermore, it has resources beyond board review material that are useful for any medical student."
-MS-2 West Virginia University School of Medicine
"Universal Notes has served as my homepage for learning. In conjunction with the board review questions, I can quiz myself and immediately review the relevant reading sections, leaving notes for myself on topics to see the overarching connections."
-MS-4 Rush Medical College
"Universal notes is designed with simplicity and innovation in mind. The app is practical for learning and logging medicine in your palm. The various features synthesize relevant questions, adaptable content and universal communication. I think UN enables students to achieve."
-MS-4 Sackler School of Medicine Tel Aviv, Israel
