Yesterday I shared NASA’s Third Rock Radio with you, which will hopefully keep your curious ears a-learnin’ through your smartphone no matter where you are… Today I have another App that will feed a whole different kind of inner-nerd: Prognosis: Your Diagnosis is a hugely popular iOS app that has you solving medical cases based on actual patients. The application is targeted to doctors, nurses, med students and the medical industry as a whole, but that doesn’t mean you need to have written your MCAT to play along… I’m pretty sure watching House each week gives you the same knowledge base anyway.
Go! Enjoy! Stop repeatedly trying to self-diagnose yourself from the Internet and do the real thing! Your doctor will be glad that you’re no longer trying to tell him what disease you have because of the symptoms you punched in to a search engine… Here’s a spoiler: no matter what symptoms you enter, Google will always say that you have Cancer or AIDS. Get Prognosis: Your Diagnosis in the App Store.
