Medical School Pathology for Self Learners
Online Resources
Studying Online

Pathology is an interesting subject but it is as difficult as any other subjects in medical science like anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, etc. We all are made differently and we all have different way of learning or studying. The method that I use to study may or may not be suitable to you. Lectures, books, pictures and slides are the common sources of learning. Using online resources to learn may be very helpful to many of us.

It is a vast subject and its knowledge is always expanding. So, it is more important that the pathology learnt in the undergraduate curriculum (like MBBS Basic Science) is basic and relevant, emphasizing the understanding of mechanisms and principles rather than detailed facts. As students continue their medical education into PG trainee years, more detailed systemic pathology will become more relevant and more appropriately learnt at that time.

Review of Medical School Pathology

Site home: http://medicalschoolpathology.com

Medical School Pathology is a resourceful medical website designed to assist self learner medical students for learning pathology. It provides online access to lecture notes and videos of all 29 chapters based on Robbin’s Pathology. Besides, it also provides medics with online laboratory for learning histopathology. This site probably won’t be useful to lay person because the description are mostly medical and includes medical jargons.
