Amazing pocket reference

It is the expectation that any high-level healthcare provider practice utilizing the highest quality evidence available. Of course, memorizing every landmark trial is unrealistic; the Journal Club offers a great way to quickly reference landmark clinical trials. Additionally, the information is provided in a complete, intuitive, and consistent fashion. Overall, a must-have for those working in healthcare.

Excellent repository for evidence based medicine

Brief update: changed to 5 stars with most recent update as the link issue has been fixed.

This is a fantastic app for any training or practicing physician. The only feature request that I have is to open trial links within the application (currently, they are directed to open in safari)

Great app that keeps getting better

This app is great to look and refresh your memory on the studies. There were not so many papers at the beginning but it keeps getting better as they add more and more almost daily I have noticed.
