The purpose of education is not simply to learn facts, but to acquire a relish for knowledge. Give medical students good methods, and a proper point of view and all other things may be added as experience grows.
Welcome to The System and Method of Medicine
Sir William Osler
Here you will learn a system and method for learning and practicing medicine.
Why? Being a medical student in the current era can be overwhelming: information overloads us from every direction. The need for a solid foundation in a methodical and systematic approach to medicine has never been greater. This website aims to build such a foundation. It is therefore different from other medical resources you will encounter for it does not detail what to think, but rather how to think.

Introduction to the System and Method of Medicine
The site draws together many approaches that students may meet elsewhere in medicine into one powerful system, which is straightforward and easy to follow. The systems on this site are a guide, and become valuable only after dedicated application of the principles – in study, and particularly at the bedside. Once these few systems have been mastered, you may leave confident that you are launched on your medical career with the correct philosophy and a sound method.
We hope your medical learning will be transformed, from what can be a dreary uphill slog of memorising list after list to a deeper understanding that brings rewarding insights and profound satisfaction, enhancing your medical practice forever.
