by Carlo Raj, MD

Learn cardiovascular pathology online and get the most out of your study time!

Lecturio’s integrated cardiovascular pathology course held by MD Carlo Raj will not only equip you with knowledge about the most important diseases related to the cardiovascular system, but will also build bridges to the related medical sciences, and thus provide you with the deepest understanding of all cardiovascular pathology topics. We are convinced that learning cardiovascular pathology has never been so inspirational, comprehensive and fun.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to easily answer all pathology questions regarding cardiovascular diseases. This is very important because cardiovascular pathology is one of the central topics in the USMLE Step 1 exam.

The course will cover the following high yield topics, among others:

  • Ischemic heart disease pathology and management
  • Electrocardiogram pathology and management
  • Valvular heart disease pathology and management
  • Myocardial disease
  • Pericardial disease
  • Cardiac arrhythmia

Before taking this course, you should already have a strong foundation in the basic sciences such as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology & immunology, and pharmacology. MD Carlo Raj will not only familiarize you with the concepts but, in doing so, will support you in building a long-term understanding of cardiovascular pathology. As a result, you will master the boards and become a better physician.

very High yield points and clinically integrated , usmle step based lecture & concept making Thanks

Great understanding with physiological concepts
By Rebecca S. on 23. March 2017 for Pericardial Disease

This is a very good course with focus on the most important material. Furthermore he keeps drawing lines to other diseases and physiology giving a good understanding of the greater picture. Only thing I miss in this lecture is recordings of the different sounds you'll hear on auscultation instead of just mentioning what you'll hear. Great lecture

Dr Raj is the best teacher in the world, thank you sir!

Not helpful and makes even the most comprehensible topic difficult to understand
By Emanuele D. on 02. March 2017 for Ischemic Heart Disease

"Now once this patient is giving you such a history, what would you want to give that patient automatically? You give this patient something in which there is going to be relief from the chest pain. Correct? What does that mean to you? It means underneath the tongue anytime that there's chest pain, you place nitroglycerin correct? Sublingual." I'm sorry, and i really don't want to sound rude, but this is not how a professional teacher should speak. When i hear this i just get very confused, and i already have my teachertoconfuse me. Dr. Raj use this rethorical questions all the time and they're very annoying. What i like about lecturio's lessons is the fact that almost all the teachers use very easy sentences when they speak, and they use a lot schemes and pictures to be more clear.
