ABOUT

We are originally four medical students attending the University of Utah School of Medicine. We love Anki, but found it very difficult to use at first. We originally made a few videos to help our classmates and eventually decided to keep making tutorials so we could share with all Anki users worldwide. Many of us are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and all of us believe that serving others is what brings true happiness. We hope you enjoy everything we have put together for you!

ORIGINAL TEAM

Nick & Meg

Nick graduated from BYU with a degree in Neuroscience after serving a 2 year proselyting mission in Taiwan. He still loves to study Mandarin Chinese in addition to playing Super Smash Bros, swing dancing and traveling. He's the voice of most of the AnKing YouTube videos :)

Meghan (the AnQueen) graduated from BYU with a degree in Physical Education. She loves outdoor adventures, ice cream and the beach.

We met on a trip in Israel because we both love to travel the world!

Blake

Prior to medical school at the University of Utah, I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Spanish. After medical school, my plan is to pursue general surgery with a focus on trauma and critical care. Beyond my education and career goals, I enjoy long-distance running, listening to music, and collecting pocket knives. However, the greatest joy in my life is being a father. I love my little girls, Jane and Hazel!

Tyson

I have a degree in neuroscience from BYU and am currently studying at the University of Utah School of Medicine. Following school I plan to pursue a career in electrophysiology. A fun fact about me is that I have traveled to 35 of the 50 US states and 15 countries. I love to travel!

Forrest

I'm currently a University of Utah medical student planning to pursue residency in neurosurgery. I graduated in neuroscience from Brigham Young University in 2018. As a San Diego native, I love surfing, mountain biking, and fly fishing. An interesting fact is that I helped start a non-profit that began in Mozambique called HealthLink Cooperative!

NEW MEMBERS

Jacob

For my undergraduate degree, I attended Utah Valley University where I received my Bachelors in Biology and also met my wonderful wife. I was blessed with the opportunity to attend Rocky Vista University in St. George, Utah. I initially wanted to attend medical school due to my desire to understand and learn Anesthesia, which I am still highly interested in; however, the CiM assessments have also opened my eyes to EM and ENT. Fun fact: I have been attacked by a shark before 🦈

Ethan

Before starting medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (McGovern Medical School), I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2019 with a degree in Biochemistry. My interests in medicine lie primarily in the field of cancer care and I intend to pursue a position in a radiation oncology residency program. When I am not studying or doing research I love to play my cello, spend time in the outdoors, and play board/card games with my wife and family.

Logan

Hey everyone I'm Logan. I'm excited to be a new member of the Anking team; they've pretty much saved my medical school bacon up to this point, so I'm happy to do a bit to return the favor.  I completed my undergrad in Human Biology at BYU-Idaho, and am currently at UUSOM. I change my mind about specialty depending on the most recent physician I've interacted with, but at the moment I'm interested in Family Medicine.  Just a little bit about me: I am married to my high school "friend zone" and we have two kids. I really like to fish and I enjoy a good slice of yellow cake with chocolate frosting every now and then (or everyday).

Andrew

I’m a research software engineer working on microbiome data science software for the Pathogen Microbiome Institute at Northern Arizona University in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona 🧬.  I previously provided technical support to Fluent Forever Anki users and have used Anki extensively to study pre-med, music, computer science, and Dutch.  As a former AFS exchange student, I’ve spent nearly two years living abroad in the Netherlands .  I’m interested in contemplative practices, effective altruism, and am currently developing a unique mnemonic system . Working with the AnKing team has inspired me to consider going back to school to pursue an education in traditional osteopathy 🥼

Daniel

I'm Daniel, a medical student at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. I graducated from the University of Tenessee with a degree in Chemical Engineering. I love problem solving, especially in the context of medicine. Over the years I've worked in several roles developing software for clinicians, researchers, and engineers alike. In my spare time I enjoy weightlifting, hiking and working on home improvement projects.

Guillem

Hello! My name is Guillem Palau Salva. My first name is William in English language. My last name is Palau, can you guess the meaning? Palace!  I'm a PhD student in Biomedicine from Barcelona, Spain. I have been using Anki since 2009 and contributing to the project since 2016. I am an avid learner. I used Anki to learn a broad range of topics, particularly for my formal college studies and Japanese language. I’d be thrilled to contribute with all the wisdom I accumulated across the years about Anki, mnemonics and efficient learning methods which are not that intuitive.
