Medical Software for the BlackBerry Storm

With all the recent buzz about the BlackBerry Storm 2 (which won't have the clickable SurePress screen), I've been inundated with questions about medical software for the BlackBerry Storm. Why do I get so many questions? Because I also author the site:

There are several options for physicians, medical students, nurses, and pharmacists who are looking for medical software for their BlackBerry Storm. Let me start by highlighting 3 of those:
  • The first is Epocrates. Epocrates is a great free mobile drug and formulary reference. I've been using it for many years.
  • Now, if you're willing to spend some money, then you could also use PEPID.
  • Finally, QxMD is also free. Great for medical calculators.
There are obviously others and I'll be highlighting them in future posts.

Finally, don't forget about this special offer: Free Epocrates Rx PRO through BlackBerry

  1. Hello,

    Thank you for making this blog. I am going to start medical school in a few weeks and I have been wondering whether I should get a smartphone. I decided to get the storm, despite all the complaints I heard because I can get it for free (excluding tax) and I want to get used to using technology in my medical practice. Thanks once again and I look forward to reading more posts from you! Also, I have been working on a website called : This site is for students to learn more about the application process.
