“I have always been on the hunt for a comprehensive, well-organized, and continuously maintained system for independent study... The ability to access Osmosis on-the-go, across a variety of devices is a simple, but entirely necessary, feature for this generation of medical scholars... Taken as a whole, I feel that the Osmosis system of studying represents the current direction of medical education.”
