Let’s set the scene: It’s 2010 and a group of medical students were finishing up their final exams. This group made up of colleagues, friends and study partners, found themselves spending more time researching medical information than they did on studying it. Accustomed to spending hours compiling data from multiple sources (e.g., textbooks, lecture notes and Dr. Google), they wanted to find a way to shift the focus back to actually practicing medicine and not just searching for answers. Why wasn’t there a single, comprehensive medical study platform that could serve as a reference-based resource and an exam prep tool? This team of young doctors, inspired by their own experiences, wanted to help future physicians navigate the journey to their degree with ease. Thus, AMBOSS was born.
Today, more than 95% of German medical students use AMBOSS as their primary exam resource, and tens of thousands more in the United States and globally use AMBOSS as a clinical companion, exam preparation tool, and comprehensive study guide.
