Best Otoscopes and Ophthalmoscopes for Students

HEINE Mini 3000 LED F.O. Otoscope Set with Batteries

HEINE Mini 3000 LED F.O. Otoscope Set with Batteries

Why We Love It: The HEINE Mini 3000 LED F.O. Otoscope Set With Batteries offers on-the-go diagnoses, making it the ideal solution for medical students wanting a lightweight and portable set of otoscopic tools. Featuring a maintenance-free LED bulb plus 3x magnification for total clarity, this set is intuitive and easy to use for beginners, while still offering sophisticated, refined results.

Not The Best For... an ophthalmoscope to assess eye health. For our top pick, take a look at the HEINE Mini 3000 LED Ophthalmoscope Set with Battery Handle - designed to produce crystal clear images using the tiniest design on the market. With an LED light designed to work for up to 50,000 hours (or 20,000 on on/off cycles), this set offers cost-efficient diagnosis with complete ease of use.

Best Medical Charts for Students

The Skin Chart (Paper)

Skin Chart (Paper)

Why We Love It: The brightly coloured Skin Chart (Paper) poster features anatomically correct depictions of the human skin, alongside common conditions and pathologies. Exploring the different layers of skin, this design acts as the perfect visual aid for dermatology students, and is ideal for use in doctor's offices, student rooms and just about anywhere! Considerably more affordable than many of the other items on this list, this poster is ideal for purchase by students themselves, or by others on their behalf - making it a fantastic gift for medical students.

Not the Best For... education on more common diseases - unlike the Diseases of the Middle Ear Chart. This design demonstrates the functions of the middle ear, showing how viruses and disease affect this part of the body, making it a more conventional alternative to the above poster.

Best Stethoscopes for Medical Students

3M Littmann Classic III Monitoring Black Stethoscope (5620)

3M Littmann Classic III Monitoring Black Stethoscope (5620)

Why We Love It: The classic stethoscope design and most medical students' first stethoscope, the 3M Littmann Classic III Monitoring Black Stethoscope (5620) detects a variety of heart beat paces, enhancing patient wellbeing with a non-chill bell sleeve and latex-free design. Designed for excellent sound occlusion using soft-sealing ear tips, with an open-bell design to prevent disease and infection, plus and tuneable technology for easy transition between low and high frequency sounds, this style of stethoscope is a true staple for every medical student needing a top quality stethoscope.

What We Don't Love: This design is a great gift for medical students, but it isn't our most affordable option. For something a little more budget-friendly, try the Timesco Ruby Single-Head Stethoscope, with a totally easy to use design ideal for students at the start of their medical career. This single-head stethoscope is available in a range of colours for a touch of originality, and is designed for easy listening to patient breathing with an aluminium chest piece for the most cost-effective design that doesn't compromise on accuracy.

Best Full Size Skeleton Model

Anatomical Model Life-Size Skeleton

Anatomical Model Life-Size Skeleton

Why We Love It: If you want to give a truly unforgettable gift, you can't go wrong with the Anatomical Model Life-Size Skeleton. Featuring a stand and dust cover, heavy-duty base and detachable skull, arms, legs and three lower teeth for an interactive learning experience, this life size design offers both educational and entertainment value to any student dorm room. Perfect for training GPs and just about any medical student, this design keeps students clued up on their anatomy in a truly unmissable way.

Not the Best For... fine-tuned detail of the human skeleton with additional informative documents. For a less affordable but unbeatably educational skeleton, try the 3B Scientific A10 Anatomical Model Skeleton Stan with detailed removable limbs, articulated hands and individual teeth. We'd recommend this design for someone with specific interest in the human skeleton, or for medical students specialising in orthopaedic studies needing the most specific model possible.

Best Anatomical Models for Students

Unisex Torso Anatomical Model (40 Parts)

Unisex Torso Anatomical Model (40 Parts)

Why We Love It: Anatomical models don't have to be complicated, difficult to assemble or expensive, and the Unisex Torso Anatomical Model (40 Parts) proves all this and more. Ideal for students wanting a design that they can interact with for additional learning, this model teaches them about the skeletal, musculature and general internal structure of the torso and digestive system. Coming in a life size design perfect for popping on desks and tables, this model keeps students up to date with the most specific inner workings of key body parts.

Not The Best For... For a less expensive option, try the 12-Part Mini Torso. Although less specific, this design is a great option for people wanting a diagram that is less interactive but still efficient in showing the inner most workings of the human torso and midsection.

Best Examination Gloves for Students

Cardinal Health Protexis PI Micro Latex-Free Sterile Powder Free Surgical Gloves

Cardinal Health Protexis PI Micro Latex-Free Sterile Powder Free Surgical Gloves

Why We Love It: The Cardinal Health Protexis PI Gloves are our bestselling examination gloves, due to their affordability and convenient pack of fifty design. Using the same chemical structure as latex (reaping both its benefits, while avoiding the potential for allergic reaction), these gloves keep students safe from cross-contamination for the perfect examination glove. They're particularly good for use in surgery, specifically general, vascular, plastic and eye surgery, plus they make a great choice for an outer glove when double-gloving.

Not the Best For...  A nitrile glove for more general use in medical spaces, such as the Unigloves Nitrile Accelerator-Free Gloves GM005. This handy pack of one hundred gloves is accelerator, zinc and sulphur-free for people with extremely sensitive skin, making it perfect for use on the widest range of medical students.
