A Tool for Final Year Medical Students

  • ReactJS

Challenge

Every year, final year medical students rank up foundation schools and deaneries where they want to work in after graduation.

It is therefore important to know how well they score in comparison to their peers, in order to put themselves in the best possible position when applying for their dream jobs and locations.

Need

I released the first version of this application in 2017.

Built as a quick tool in patchy html and javascript, I never anticipated how popular this application would become.

Within months this tool was used over 40,000 times by prospective applicants; shared across multiple social media outlets and forums.

The following year, I saw a significant increase of users; with over 140,000 reports generated throughout the academic year. Searching "FPAS" even brings up this tool as the second result on Google.

This prompted me to rebuild and redesign the application to allow for new features to be implemented in the future and for better events tracking across the application.

Solution

I used this project as an opportunity to practice and improve upon my ReactJS & web deployment knowledge.

I built the entire project in ReactJS with a css framework from Semantic UI.
