FreeMedEd.org began as a passion project in 2014 by founder, Chase DiMarco. It originated as a repository of FREE medical education resources, quizzes, and videos in an effort to organize the multitude of resources for easy student access.
In 2017, FME began to create it’s own original content in the form of blogs, online medical courses, and podcasts. These were created to be freely available to all medical and healthcare students looking for material to supplement their traditional coursework.
Read This Before Medical School was the first for-pay product created under the FME label, and was collaborated on by Dr. Ted O’Connell of Step 2 Secrets and Dr. Greg Rodden of the Physiology by Physeo Podcast. Tutoring and coaching services now exist for students that desired more personalized training and group study sessions.
The mission of FME has, and always will be, the creation of free and affordable medical education content and to help decrease the financial burden placed on medical and healthcare students. We emphasize the use of proper instructional design, cognitive and learning psychology as it applies to higher education, and mnemonic technique development to assist with information overload students may face.
