What makes us tick?

Our philosophy is a simple one: effective teaching must involve active and experiential learning.  Engaging students with "outside of the box" teaching methods encourages creativity, fuels passion, and complements traditional didactic teaching methods.  Thus, our goal is to enhance the user's knowledge of Family Medicine topics in a new and compelling way.

We believe that family physicians and allied health professionals strengthen our local communities and can have an impact on those internationally as well.  We also have a responsibility to assist those less fortunate and in need.  Therefore, the Family Medicine Study Guide was created as a non-profit project.  100% of the project's revenue will be used to ensure the sustainability of the app and be donated to various charities around the world.

Thank you for your support in this endeavour, and best of luck with your studies and continued growth in the field of Family Medicine.
