Phase 1 Flashcards - active learning
Phase 1 is your first encounter in medical school: the preclinical years. Here, you will learn the basic science and textbook clinical decision making that will serve well in the clinic. As the student government, MSA is providing you comprehensive UWSMPH Phase 1 flash cards, called the Fuzion Anki Deck. This deck features content from PPP, BiB, FFF, HFT, I&D and M&M.
The Fuzion Anki Deck is made by your fellow students and is of extremely high quality (cloze format, short and well-thought out, with class slide screenshots per card). They follow the UWSMPH Phase 1 curriculum of 2020-21 comprehensively on a lecture-by-lecture basis. Please thank Class of 2023 Sahand Chase Eftekari for building the original "Legend" M1-year deck, Class of 2024 Cuong Luu (along with others) for updates and inclusion of M2-year content, and Class of 2026 Jinan Sous for contributing the PPP section of the deck.
As a prerequisite, you must download Anki. Make a profile (if you want to test these following decks, make test profiles before importing into your main profile.) Then you can import the following .apkg. Be warned that this is a 3 GB file, so make sure you have enough space on your computer and expect a long download time.
Students from the class of 2026 have also made an updated Anki deck to reflect changes in the curriculum over the past few years. Please feel free to download the Diamond Anki Deck below as an alternative to the Fuzion deck.

A note: With Anki, you can get add-ons for increased productivity, such as Hierarchical Tags (which is important for the most amazing Step 1 Deck by Anking -- which follows these top resources First Aid (THE textbook), Boards and Beyond (videos: physiology + pathobiology), and Pathoma (Dr. Sattar is a superhero: super highest yield pathobiology) -- , Frozen Fields (to create decks quickly from one slide), or Image Occlusion (for anatomy deck making). Or you can get cute add-ons like Puppy Reinforcement.
Come fall of the following year, after your first year, you meet an even greater challenge with these blocks:
Invaders and Defense (I&D)
Mind and Motion (M&M)
By then, you will have hopefully gained an understanding of how you study best. As a source of flashcards, please use the Fuzion deck linked above, or any of the other decks in the folder below that were created by former students.
