The First Aid/USMLE-Rx Blog was created to address a need for students to have a single, official source for all updates and errata to each edition of the First Aid series. Here, we will collect all official submissions and begin work to give you up to date information while you prepare for your Boards and Clerkships. For those students that own previous editions of our texts, we will archive all errata so that you can continue to access the updates that you need.

The blog is also intended to provide information, advice, and assistance to help students prepare for their exams. This is accomplished by posting sample questions, USMLE announcements, First Aid/USMLE-Rx announcements, advice about various USMLE topics, mobile apps reviews, study tips, and, our latest additions, mnemonics and a weekly column focused on med school life.

The final goal of the blog is to facilitate an online community for boards preparation. Using tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and the USMLE-Rx website, we hope to share the most up-to-date information available.

We invite you to subscribe to the blog to receive daily email updates, challenging sample questions, and First Aid Team news.  Also, don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
