I still remember the day five of my students came into my office and presented the idea of “ Let’s Talk Med”. I was truly impressed by it and was very proud to see it come from such dedicated students. I believe universities must invest in such projects and support such bright minds, because at the end they are our future doctors.

Let’s Talk Medicine is a student designed and run website for medical students. Although, the website is in its early phase, nonetheless, it is an excellent guide for students to find information summaries in one place. The summaries are well written and organized for easy access, incorporating text, diagrams and videos. The authors include references for the information provided and important information is presented in special boxes for effective learning. The is a user-friendly e-learning tool and students using this website are likely to find it beneficial. I fully recommend students making use of this e-resource.

When I was a medical student in the early 1990s in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, I remember vividly struggling to understand Acid-Base pathophysiology. I overcome the struggle by joining a study group where we exchanged ideas. We learnt from each other to compensate for our respective weakens. From those days, I began to appreciate the power of interactive learning. There is no equal.
The internet was in the very early stages of its infancy then. There was no YouTube.
The advent of the internet has revolutionized every aspects of our lives.
The developers of “Let’s Talk Medicine”, all of them medical students, at the King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia have utilized the power of the internet to come up with a product of a superlative quality. The most challenging topics in medical study have been broken down in an interactive fashion as a student walks the user through. The topics are engaging and exciting. It is truly a phenomena piece of work. It may be because it is the medical student who best appreciates his or her fellow medical student’s struggles in grasping complex topics.
It was truly a joy navigating through the topics. All at once. I felt young again reminiscing of my old days when I struggles with Acid Base pathophysiology. But this time it came so easy to me listening to a student walk med through; armed with the power of the internet.
Kudos to the developers of their remarkable piece of work!!
