Internet resources that I found useful

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I want to share some online resources that I personally found useful during PA school. I didn't include Rosh/Osmosis/OnlineMedEd cause I feel like everyone is already aware of those. The vast majority of these are free and the ones that are not are usually very cheap. This list is obviously not inclusive of every resource available on the internet but it includes the things that I found most helpful. Unfortunately I don't have any apple/iphone suggestions as I do not use them.

WINDOWS UTILITIES
Flashpaste

http://flashpaste.com/ Free trial, $20 This is a text expander. You can set up keyword shortcuts and templates that are very useful for writing SOAP notes. You can load a whole template for SOAP notes, or procedure notes or physical exams, etc and tie them to keywords.

For example, when I type “.soap” the following text gets pasted into whatever program I’m using:

Then I just edit the note as needed. It allows for a great deal of customization including text macros to input date, time, etc.

Video Speed Manager (Chrome extension)

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/video-speed-manager/fkopaaikpmfhpmoobnmklgmcgmhgfkcd?hl=en-US Very useful if your program requires you to complete the 24 hours of videos for the MAT certification. This extension allows you to play the videos at double speed (or 1.5x, etc).

4K Video Downloader

https://www.4kdownload.com/ Free with limitations, paid full version. This program allows you to download YouTube videos/playlists as video or audio files. Very useful to download media for those long commutes to clinicals.
