MediMaps is a site offering mind maps on medical topics to medical students.
Quote “Reading pages and pages of text makes me go to sleep, and I can’t remember any of it.” … Then the author found concept maps … “They make it easier to show how information is linked together.”

You can either download the maps as images, or download a soft copy and amend it to enhance your learning further. To do that, you will need free software from Tufts University called VUE (in versions for Windows / Mac OSX / Linux).

In making use of these maps, you should evaluate the sources and decide whether you can rely on their accuracy and completeness. Be aware that WikIT does not endorse or validate the maps and our editors are not qualified to do so.
