We get a lot of questions because Osmosis is quite different from anything out there. We'll answer some of these questions here!
Anyone can create questions on Osmosis and share with their classmates. For these questions, it's up to the class to rate and comment in order to ensure quality and accuracy. Curated questions are questions developed by the Osmosis team and our "Medical Contributors", "Medical Scholars", and "Clinical Advisors." These questions have been through a more intensive development and vetting process. Publisher questions are questions provided by our partnerships with major publishing companies.
Osmosis was born out of necessity. Ryan and Shiv met in anatomy as med students at Johns Hopkins and quickly realized that they were forgetting much of what they'd learned each time they moved on to a new block. Turns out that research shows med students forget up to 50% of what they've learned after the first year and over 66% of what they've learned over the course of 2 years. Osmosis was created to help med students break out of cram-forget cycles and maximize their learning efficiency.
