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!

My lecture review
By Linda P. on 25. March 2019 for Formation of the Right and Left Atria

Nice lecture, but i would understand this better if there were 3D animation videos....That would make it more visual and interesting...

 
Very informative and enjoyable!

review of Peter Ward and embryology lectures
By moose h. on 21. March 2019 for Ectoderm Derivatives and Neurulation

This video, with the previous two videos are amazing. Taking embryology in med school was like greek or hebrew. Your teaching style is very helpful to dissect the processes into understandable segments. Our professor taught by day of development so there was lots of jumping around. I like the discussion of one layer from flat layer to cells to folding, to closure, etc. Very well done. Moose Henderson, PhD
