Murtagh goes digital with flashcards app


Publisher McGraw-Hill has released an updated version of its diagnostic flashcards for general medical practice app, developed by GP, author and Monash University professor emeritus John Murtagh and based on content from his 1535-page book John Murtagh’s General Practice.

The app offers more than 500 diagnostic flashcards that allow users to enhance their knowledge and quiz themselves on a variety of topics covering all disciplines of medicine.

Available for the iPhone and iPad, the app enables users to search by category or review bookmarked flashcards. Notes for each card are simple to activate and review with each session giving the option to accumulate memory points.

The app can also be used as a study tool for medical students, GP registrars and interns within any healthcare setting or organisation.

“I have a set of hand written cards now 45 years old and was hoping the publishers would re-produce the set of cards,” Professor Murtagh said in a statement.

“They went with the apps and it’s a brilliant idea. The new app gives students and health professionals the most up-to-date information, based on our research.”

It is believed these are the first medical flashcards to be developed in Australia.
