Welcome to istudymedicine.com. Here you’ll find my medical notes that I’ve gathered through medical school and through my experience as a doctor. The content on this site comes from both lectures and course literature. Since this is a work in progress and since I’ve managed to gather quite a lot of information, it will understandably take a while to put it all up. But Nota Bene! Some of the lecture and medical notes are already up and running, like this one about Herpes simplex.
In the meanwhile, while waiting eagerly for more medical notes, you can visit the blog and gallery. There, I write about the lastest medical news and put up medical videos. I hope you’ll find it interesting and useful and please be free to comment!
Best Regards, Mirjam Messo
