Learning Resources

A student's hands type on laptop

OSLAA strongly encourages students to utilize all GUSOM faculty resources– course syllabus, learning objectives, powerpoint presentations, self-assessments, and other resources on course canvas sites– as your primary learning resources. The goal of each student is to actively engage faculty resources and didactic learning experiences to master basic science principles that will be essential to your clinical clerkships and ultimately your career as a practicing physician.

The learning materials provided by education resource partners listed on this information page are supplemental resources to your education. We also strongly encourage students to avail themselves of all free resources available for basic science, step 1, step 2 CK review available through the Dahlgren Memorial Library

OSLAA does not endorse any specific educational resource partners. The below pages show resources used by GUSOM students. OSLAA welcomes additional resources recommended by students.

Meet with an OSLAA learning specialist for advice around which learning resources might be right for your individual learning plan and needs by completing a Learning Consultation Request Form.
