Testimonials from other Fellows
Working with the Osmosis team on webinars, flashcards, and papers has been a great experience for myself thus far as I begin to forge my own path in medicine. Most importantly, they've helped me realise the extent of my passion for medical education, and have helped me reach clarity on my personal goals, values, and how I can bring them to fruition.
- Amreet Sidhu, MD, aka Brosencephalon
The Osmosis team is simply amazing! While at Oxford, I had the distinct pleasure of working closely with Ryan and Shiv [the co-founders of Osmosis] during a research project based on data from the Osmosis platform. Their support and encouragement was fundamental in getting my research published. This commitment to data-driven science as a way to truly improve medical education makes the Osmosis inner circle a refreshing and exciting team to work with!
- Ashwin Menon, Rhodes Scholar and First Author on paper in Medical Teacher
I started medical school with a simple goal, do well in classes so I can kill the STEP and become an MD. When I first met Shiv and learned about Osmosis, I not only found the way to achieve my goal of a high STEP score, but also opened my eyes to possibilities I had never considered. With the help of Team Osmosis, Emeka and I secured a presentation at Stanford Medical School’s MedX conference where we met with attendings, residents, medical school deans, and many other leaders in the realm of medical education. Being part of the Osmosis inner circle means staying up to date with research and presentation opportunities, early access to Beta releases to the platforms and networking with medical students throughout the world who want to make a meaningful change in medical education.
- Aaron Brown, MD Candidate
Osmosis is adaptive learning at its finest that accommodates to different learning styles. It's completely changing the way medical content is consumed and inspiring students like myself and Aaron to create technology for students by students that can meet learners where they are, by being flexible and portable. Thanks to the inspiration of Osmosis we applied to and got accepted to attend the Stanford MedX conference and continue to work to build tools for medical students.
- Emeka Ajufo, MD Candidate
I feel very fortunate to have been a member of the Osmosis team. Being a part of the Osmosis inner circle allowed me to interview my favorite leaders in medical education, which were then posted on the Osmosis website. I remain very close to these leaders, and to the Osmosis team - this unique opportunity to contribute to medical education has made the journey much more fun!
