Long before “crowdsourcing” became a popular buzzword, the editors at First Aid embraced the concept of tapping into the knowledge of a large group of people to develop the world’s best selling medical review books. After all, the First Aid series has always been by students, for students. With our new Step 1 errata submission process, we’re getting back to our roots in a way that you, the student, can monitor.

The real news is that you can view submissions long before we post a list of errata. We urge you to take a look at the list of proposed Step 1 errata and suggestions. Bear in mind that this list does not house verified or approved errata/suggestions, only PROPOSED submissions. Each submission will be reviewed by the appropriate author teams for consideration in the next edition or as an update to the Errata page. If you believe that you’ve uncovered an erratum that is unique and/or more accurate, click here to access our new Step 1 errata submission form.

We’re pretty excited about the new submission process, and we look forward to even more advanced submission options in the near future.
