You probably know MD Edward Goljan and his Rapid Review Pathology Series. But do you know the "new" Goljan? His name is Carlo Raj and he is currently following his mentor's footsteps by presenting you pathology as you have never experienced before.

Carlo Raj has earned his MD at the Medical University of the Americas (MUA) and continued his medical career as professor of Pathophysiology at the University of Pikeville, Kentucky, and as an international lecturer and author—both assisting MD Edward Goljan and later on his own. Today he is also CEO of Indus Intellect, whose goal it is to spread medical knowledge across the globe.

very well put together and easy to understand. now i understand what was complicated reading my book

Tries to cover Step 1 and Step 2 material in one course, but falls short of being helpful for either test

I use Goljan and Pathoma for pathology and my med school "assigns" reading from Robbins Pathology. All three are great resources for preclinical pathology courses and Goljan and Pathoma are the go-to's for every medical students prep for Step 1. Dr. Raj is not like his mentor Dr. Goljan. I have yet to see a true pathogenesis lecture or even see histological images of any of the heart diseases (he barely even has gross images of cardio pathology). He spends time covering management/treatment when he should be covering relevant preclinical pathology. I had high hopes from a guy whose mentor is Dr. Goljan. Hopefully his other pathology subjects are better.

Carlos Raj, great professor!
