Apps for Health Professionals

A guide to medical apps for Apple and Android smartphones, tablets, and other devices.

Apps For All

Students in every program and health professionals of all specialties will be interested in these apps. All of the apps included here are highly rated and/or were recommended by IHP faculty. Most of the apps are free or inexpensive. We have avoided recommending very expensive apps (of which there are many aimed at health professionals). As always, make sure that an app is compatible with your device.

Lab Values

Anatomy Apps

Cardiopulmonary Apps

Patient Education

You can use these apps to demonstrate concepts to your patients or to create your own patient education materials.
