A Nerdcore Look at the Amen Break

May 26, 2009/2/0/

Y’know being a Nerdcore Learner not only means that you are passionate about medicine.

So what is this Nerdcore Learning thing that you speak of? Well for those of you that didn’t meet Francis and I at the Nerdcore Learning booth at AMSA 2009 (American Medical Student Assn) in March, allow me to re-cap. We’re a publishing start-up devoted to developing unique study-aids for medical students. We also happen […]
