Open Osmosis: Health Open Educational Resources (OER)

Open Osmosis (2015) is an initiative committed to developing and disseminating health education resources with the ultimate aim of making healthcare more accessible. With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we have curated thousands of open educational resources (OER), including images, videos, and practice questions within a dozen clinician domains. These include anesthesiology, emergency medicine, neurology, dermatology, radiology, psychiatry, learning analytics, obstretics & gynocology, spine & musculosketal medicine, osteopathic principles, pediatrics, opthalmology, and surgery. These were produced and curated by more than 150 medical students, residents, and clinicians from around the world. Open Osmosis's content is under a Creative Commons Attribution CC-BY 4.0...

Innovative approach with creation of open access to a growing repository of educational resources related to medical topics. The short and succinct video are captivating. The variety of images, videos and practice questions is highly useful.
