5 Apps Every Physician Should Have
It’s tough to keep track of which applications are the greatest mobile tools in the market with so many available and new ones appearing every day.
We’ve separated the Medical School chaff to present five must-have apps for physicians, whether you’re an Apple or Android user.
5 Apps Every Physician Should Have
1. Human DX
The Human Diagnosis Project’s mobile interface, HUMAN DX, is an ambitious, open-source international attempt to map every health problem to a vast range of human diagnoses.
Physicians and medical students can use this free software to access the collective wisdom of colleagues and the medical community on challenging clinical problems. Solve other people’s cases to put your clinical talents to the test, or share your own.
The user interface of the app is well-designed, making participation in the Human Diagnosis Project quick and simple. MDLinx’s Mobile App Center recognized Human Dx an Editor’s Pick with a 5-star rating.
PDR mobile is one of the greatest of the various apps that provide drug information right at your fingers. For starters, it embodies the Physician’s Desk Referencecomprehensiveness, ®’s attention to detail, and dependability. It also has incredibly detailed drug information that is presented in a user-friendly manner.
One of its best features is the ability to choose many medicines for a certain indication and compare them side by side, swiping from one drug to the next to examine their similarities and differences in every detail.
The software is free, and creating an account is simple. This is a fantastic solution if you just consult one drug reference on your mobile device. It’s “highly recommended,” according to MDLinx’s Mobile App Center.
3. Calculate by QxMD
Calculate by QxMD is a free, easy-to-use, well-organized website that offers exactly what it promises: over 150 of the most effective risk calculators, scores, and other decision-making tools.

4. MDLinxCME powered by RealCME
If you want to complete your continuing medical education (CME/CE) needs while on the go, MDLinxCME powered by RealCME is the app for you.
This free software provides interactive CME on a range of speciality topics, with new ones being introduced on a regular basis. AMA, ACPE, ANCC, AANP, and other organizations accredit activities.
You can start an activity on your phone and continue it on your computer later. Your completed credits are automatically tracked in your own CME toolkit, and your certificates are provided to you. (It’s worth noting that MDLinx and PracticeMatch are owned by the same parent firm.)
5. For Physicians, PracticeMatch
PracticeMatch For Physicians is a simple, effective, and free software that allows you to look for and apply for thousands of jobs in medical facilities across the country. (If you’re reading this, you’re already familiar with the PracticeMatch website; now you’re also familiar with the app.)
