A complete review of Pathology—Learning Pathology has never been so comfortable

Pathology is one of the most essential fields in USMLE Step 1. It aims to understand pathological changes in the human body and, at the same time, provide the foundation for their treatment. Pathology, together with anatomy and histology, constitutes 60-70 % of the entire USMLE exam.

At Lecturio, MD Carlo Raj will provide you with the best pathology test prep—something he has been successfully doing for the past 15 years. In this he follows the footsteps of his mentor, renowned MD Edward Goljan.

Lecturio's comprehensive pathology video course is particularly characterized by being remarkably up to date and having a strong USMLE orientation, HQ illustrations from Golijan and Robbins and USMLE-style questions. Carlo Raj has adapted his teaching strategies to the needs of his students. He does not only teach exam relevant facts but also looks back at the basics of anatomy while providing insights into pharmacology as well. This way, he is able to relate the most important specialized fields to each other, and to teach extensive medical knowledge with focusing on the upcoming exam as well as on the student's future medical career.

Excellent work
By Muhammad Muzaffar H. on 23. March 2017 for Congestive Heart Failure

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

 
Well described but omission of Chronic Subdural haematoma
By Hamed S. on 21. March 2017 for Epidural Hematoma (Extradural Haematoma)

Good talk on the topic but could be improved by discussion management and when you may consider surgical evacuation vs watch and wait. Also no mention of chronic subdural haematoma.

 
I need of improvement
By Hamed S. on 21. March 2017 for Increased Intracranial Pressure (ICP)

I'm not sure if this topic will be covered in neurosurg but serious detail lacking. First of all no definition what a raised ICP is and how best to diagnose. No clear explanation of the underlying cause ie mass effect (tumour, abscess), vascular (hypoxia, hypercapnia, venous flow obstruction), hydrocephalus (obstructive vs none), pseudotumor cerebri. It would have been useful to discuss shunts in the treatment as well and when you may consider inserting them
