UMHS Provides Kaplan Integrated Plan to Basic Science Students

UMHS President Warren Ross is pleased to announce that beginning soon UMHS will be offering all our Basic Science students access to the new Kaplan Integrated Plan.  We are one of the first off shore medical schools to provide this resource to students in the Basic Sciences, giving our students a great jump start on preparing for the USMLE Step 1. UMHS students will no longer have to wait until the 5th semester at our campus in Portland, Maine to access these valuable tools. The information will also be useful as an additional resource with content and video’s which correspond to each of the basic science courses taught in St. Kitts. The Question Bank is incredible and once again a great tool to test your overall knowledge. The Integrated plan contains the following:
  1. Over 2,100 newly updated USMLE type questions 
  2. Full explanations and reKap summaries for all questions 
  3. Streamlined user experience with progress reports 
  4. Simple test creation and test-like interface

Acid-Base Disturbance Cases on AccessMedicine

Are you struggling with a complicated acid-base disturbance case?

AccessMedicine now includes 58 new Acid-Base Disturbance Cases to help both students and practicing providers hone their skills and master these difficult concepts. These cases are progressive, complex cases appropriate for the advanced medical student and resident level physician covering double and triple acid-base disturbances. The questions are multiple choice and build on each other so they must be answered before moving on to the next page. Each question provides the user with a rationale for the correct answer to maximize learning. Navigate to the Hospital Corner or Cases tab in the main navigation bar to access  the cases.


Also the AccessMedicine core textbooks provide in-depth information on acid-base disturbances to help students and practicing providers take a deeper dive into the physiology of each type of disturbance. Here are a few examples of applicable chapters within a few AccessMedicine core textbooks:
Current Medical Diagnosis & Treatment 2018, Chapter 21: Electrolyte & Acid-Base Disorders
Critical Care, Chapter 28: Acid-Base Disorders
Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 19e, Chapter 66: Acidosis and Alkalosis
Principles and Practice of Hospital Medicine, 2e, Chapter 238: Acid-Base Disorders

As with all the other AM cases, users must be logged into their MyAccess personal account to answer the questions. Contact the library if you need help with your personal MyAccess logins for AccessMedicine.
