Mental Maps in Community Medicine

Disclaimer: The content in this post is primarily intended for my students, who are familiar with the layout of mental maps. However, those unfamiliar with such non-linear notes may learn how to use these notes by going through the map ‘How to use these notes’, contained in 1. Introduction, and described in this article.

This is the first tranche of maps on Community Medicine. The remaining maps will be released in subsequent tranches.

Each link contains more than one map pertaining to the description in the link. The maps were prepared some time ago, and have not been updated. Although most of the content may not have changed, users are advised to refer a current textbook for the latest information. The notes are best used for rapid revision AFTER completing one reading of the standard textbook. I have omitted (what I felt were) unnecessary details from the maps, retaining only the most important content for an undergraduate student. Therefore, these maps are unsuitable for those seeking comprehensive coverage.

I do not have the time to compile all the maps into a single document. Users are free to create such a document. However, I would prefer that due credit is given to the source, and a copy shared with me as well. These maps are free for personal, non-commercial use.
