    Physical diagnostic kits

    Advertisements



    Having just finished off the island and doing my own research on where to buy a physical diagnostic kit I have seen 3 major places where to buy it: 1. Amazon 2. eBay 3. Medmogul.com
    Amazon allows you the ability to build your own kit but the downside is that everything comes separately and it is a bit a struggle to look it all up. It's a great option with good prices tho. eBay is great if you have the patience to bid because you can get amazing deals at times. Medmogul seems to cater to Sgu students but the kit that they are selling is fairly standard for most medical schools. They ship everything together and the prices are about the same as if you were to buy each thing separately

    You will never use most of the stuff in that kit. The only things you really need are 1. good stethoscope, 2. penlight, and 3. maxwell quick medical reference book. Maybe also a reflex hammer. Everything else the hospitals/clinics will have and even if you do buy the other stuff (otoscope/ophthalmoscope, blood pressure cuff) you would never bring it with you everyday because you can't carry it around and it would get stolen/lost. I would instead spend the money on a nice stethoscope. It can make all the difference when listening for heart sounds/murmurs/rales, and it will make you look good in front of the attendings when you hear things that the residents/other students with cheap stethoscopes can't. You can go for a Littmann Cardiology III ($150) which is very nice, or what I personally have is an ADC Adscope 602 ($70) which I find is comparable acoustically for about half the price. Just my $0.02
