Embryology

by John McLachlan, PhD, Peter Ward, PhD

Prepare for embryology questions in the USMLE!

Embryology is more than observing how an egg turns into an adult. But what exactly does this important medical field entail? This question and others will be answered in this introductory course on embryology. As you will see, studying the processes of fertilization and beyond reveals many important facts which not only concern the embryo, but many other components. Find out how adult diseases such as cancer develop and learn more about the characteristics and diagnosis of inherited diseases in this comprehensive online course.

This course will give you a thorough introduction to embryology and cover the following topics:
  • Fertilisation and the first weeks 
  • Folding and neurulation 
  • Development and abnormalities of various organs 
Study rarely pays off without constant repetition. Apply your new embryological knowledge to our set of USMLE-style questions! Designed for medical students, our question sets cover a wide range of topics and include the corresponding detailed explanations and diagrams. Combined, the lectures and the questions will help you shine in your exams!

Better Embryology course
By kevinbartolomeu23@gmail.com k. on 26. December 2020 for Embryology: Introduction

Much better than the first professor who is teaching embryology on lecturio. Lecturio should highlight this embryology course than the by the other professor.
