    Palm must-haves

    With the new Hardware and software being updated all the time, this info should be verified and updated before spending lots of $. For me, I felt that the 5 Minute Clinical was essential. I thought Harrison's was way too detailed, but good for research...not worth the $ in my opinion. Epocrates was great for a drug reference, and it's free. Good luck.

    palm software

    StudentMD,

    A friend of mine gave me a ton of books for the Palm, and I used a bunch of them. I found that 5 min CC, Harrisons, PDR were staples on my palm through all of my clinicals. I also used 5 min Peds during that rotation, and it really was a help. Finally, I had the AMA Psych Guidelines book and a Neurology textbook that saved me at times during my Psych rotation. Oh, I also used the Red Book on my Palm at times... but not often.

    What???

    What are these programmes you refer to? In the UK we have the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, the BNF for drugs and a good reference book suchas Mosbys,

    Which OS?

    Which operating system would you reccomend? If I buy a Palm in the UK will it be compatible with these programmes? Or do I need a US Palm. What hardware would you reccomend?

    Do you think it's worth getting one now or waiting until I get to clinicals? I'm just thinking it might be useful for taking notes during lectures.

    PDA

    I use both a Palm based PDA and a Pocket PC based PDA. Also have a Symbian based Revo that's collecting dust.

    well it depends on what software you want..
    from what i gather more and more people are moving towards the pocket pc... i have a palm myself.. my residency programs givin me a pocket pc...

    if u have a palm os from the uk it will be compatible with us pam os....
    as far as hardware.. theres a wide range dependings on ur preferences and what you need...

    if u have the money get one now.. u can learn how to use it, come sin handy as a day planner.. most double as mp3 players also...
    i dunno if it would be really handy for taking notes during lecture.....

    but really helpful to have one during clinicals.. for me mine was my ectopic brain..

    pc

    palm and pocket pc run off of two different operating systems.....like microsoft and apple. I like my dell pocket pc.....1 year old and its still more advanced than the palms my friends are buying for close to the same price
