The pathology of the reproductive system includes common diseases like:

  • Disorders of the vulva, vagina and cervix
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Uterine and fallopian tube disease
  • Ovarian disease
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Breast diseases
  • Male reproductive system diseases
  • Reproductive hormone disorders

Furthermore, your will learn essential insights about the reproductive physiology, e.g. exam relevant informations about testosterone, the female and male reproductive system, maternal changes and more.

On top of that, you will learn more about the pharmacological aspects, like estrogens and progestins and more.

High yield quiz questions and specific topic reviews will provide you with further information and will help you to repeat your medical knowledge in order to get the best exam preparation.

 Carlo Raj, MD

Carlo Raj, MD

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 professor of Pathophysiology at the Becker Professional Education, Chicago, USA, and as an international lecturer and author—both assisting MD Edward Goljan and later on his own. Today he teaches at Becker Professional Education and is also CEO of Indus Intellect, whose goal it is to spread medical knowledge across the globe.

 Pravin Shukle, MD

Video lectures and Delivery
By Nadia D. on 18. October 2018 for Placenta: Blood Flow, Barriers & Exchange

Although the lecture content is good. This speaker frequently uses inappropriate sentence structure and phrasing. The result is certain sentences, when spoken, become confusing even though their content is simple. For example...Lets talk about how the placenta and its roles in helping the fetus develop. The sentence makes sense when you read it in the script without having listened to it. However, in the mini-lecture, it was read without pauses or breaks that clarified the emphasis of the sentence. it should have been read as: For example...Lets talk about how the placenta, and its roles in helping the fetus, develop. I know the speaker is likely reading a script, but it happens frequently where his enunciation or sentence delivery does not match the context of sentence. This adds a certain layer of listener confusion which delays the rate at which an individual is progressing through each mini-lecture (4-min lecture becomes 7-minutes). This happens frequently with this speaker and is not a huge deal, until you are forced to listen to all of the physiology lectures, and then become agitated.

 
Very helpful thankyou!!
By Sophie W. on 13. October 2018 for Pelvic Walls – Pelvic Floor

I actually disagree with the above. Definitely really easy to follow, especially with the colour changes on the diagrams. It is, after all, an anatomy lecture and he teaches in a way that does allow you to think contextually for yourself without being super explicit about it. Thanks James
