ScholarLocker is an online social network which allows aspiring physicians to efficiently share resources and advice with each other. A student at Harvard Medical School can easily post and share a useful cardiology study guide with his peers across the country. Likewise, a medical student at UCSF may wonder what others use to study for an exam, post a question, and receive feedback from medical students from many other schools. ScholarLocker fosters the intercollegiate and team-oriented nature of medical practice.
Within weeks of launching at Harvard, 90% of students became registered users. ScholarLocker is now quickly expanding to medical schools across the country. After seeing ScholarLocker for the first time, a Dean at HMS exclaimed, “this is the future of medical education”.
