mnemonic, noun: a short rhyme, phrase, or other mental technique for making information easier to memorize [from Greek mnēmonikos, "relating to memory"]. Med Mnemonics is a unique learning tool with over 1900 of them.
Mnemonics got me through medical school and the USLME steps. Wherever you are within the allied health professions - medical school, nursing school, NP school, PA school, residency, and beyond - you can improve your knowledge base in the short and long term with these key associative memory aids.
Medical Mnemonics puts 1796 clever acronyms, rhymes, and memory tricks on your iPhone or iPod Touch, covering topics ranging from Anatomy and Biochemistry to Pharmacology and Surgery.
The database is fully searchable and can be quickly filtered by discipline and by system. Create a Favorites list, and search and filter it similarly.
The best mnemonics can be those you make yourself. Add your own mnemonics to the database, where they'll appear seamlessly alongside those which come with the program. Submit them instantaneously to the Medical Mnemonics server for review by an MD (that's me!) and inclusion in the next version.
You can email any mnemonic to a colleague from within Medical Mnemonics. He or she can view it within the email or add it to their own copy of Medical Mnemonics with a single click.
Updates will be free for life and will include new mnemonics submitted by users (that's you!) and added as we all continue learning together.
Every mnemonic is physician-reviewed, but we're only human. If you find a mistake, email us; we will pay a $5 bounty per substantive mistake found to the first reporter of that mistake!

Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful app, easy to remember when in clinical and on exams.
Great app, functions well
Contains a wealth of mnemonics. I've been using this alongside my board prep qbanks to look up useful mnemonics. It would be nice if the database was updated periodically with new content.
This is a great app; a few suggestions
Great app!! I loooooove being able to filter the different subjects as well as subfilter organ system. However, a few tips: would like to see being able to star mnemonics from the mnemonic page, not just in the list view. Also, but perhaps more complicated, to bold letters in mnemonic submissions from iPhone. All in all a highly recommended purchase! You won't regret it.
