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 international lecturer and author—both assisting MD Edward Goljan and later on his own. Today he is CEO of Indus Intellect, whose goal it is to spread medical knowledge across the globe.

Not up to the standards of Lecturio
By Loredana O. on 17. November 2020 for Ophthalmology: Basic Principles with Carlo Raj

I cannot understand how Lecturio managed to find so many other competent professors to teach, anatomy, physiology (wonderful!!), histology (ditto!!), internal medicine etc and yet ended up with Raj as the pathology professor for almost ALL the pathology. I thank Lecturio for how much they helped me with the aforementioned subjects but with regards to pathology, I am very disappointed. His lectures are too fast, not detailed enough, he doesn't teach so much as he summarizes only a few key facts while leaving out other important information that I then have to look up myself or subscribe to another website such OSMOSIS, PICMONIC, MEDSKL that do a significantly better job at explaining pathology. It is obvious that Raj is passionate about pathology but he should really read the comments left by the majority of viewers and not the very few 5 stars he gets from the same 3 people. YOU CAN DO BETTER LECTURIO AND DR. RAJ but you must choose to do better and put in the work. I may recommend Lecturio for all the other topics, but as for pathology, I will not be recommending Lecturio, which is very unfortunate.

Great summary

It´s great how the most important clinical points of diabetic retinopathy are explained with pathophysiology. I love how he tries to make us undertand how things work instead of memorizing information.
