AccessMedicine

Comprehensive Library of Books: Library of 130+ books is conveniently organized by basic sciences, clinical medicine, and healthcare systems.

MULTIMEDIA

Lecture Videos: These videos may be incorporated as part of a flipped classroom approach in which students may view the video and join together online with a small group for an engaging discussion. Lecture subjects include anatomy, diagnostic reasoning, genetics, neurology, and pharmacology.

Pathophysiology Videos: Harrison’s Pathophysiology Animations take complex pathophysiology concepts and make them easy to understand with high quality visual animations.

Human Anatomy Modules: These interactive modules allow for visualization of the human body in an interactive, 3D format where both male and female anatomy modules can be viewed. Choose a module and then utilize the options on the left-hand side of the screen to learn more about human anatomy.

Human Anatomy Tours: Interactive and close-up views are seen in these visual representations, along with helpful descriptions of body systems, including muscles and nerves.

Communication Videos: Patient interview videos provide an example of how to appropriately interact with patients in a variety of difficult situations.

Physical Exam Videos: Watch an expert clinician conduct a physical exam on the different body systems in preparation for a virtual or in-person simulation lab, health assessment class, and the clinical setting. 

Auscultation Classroom: These videos include detailed explanations of normal and abnormal heart sounds, along with audio clips of each sound to teach cardiology physical exam skills.

Procedure Videos: Learn a variety of core patient procedures which can later be practiced in a virtual or in-person simulation lab, or with actual patients. 

Podcasts: Harrison’s Podclass presents engaging discussions on key principles of internal medicine, around board-style case vignettes. Students may listen and then contribute to an online or in-person discussion of the key principles within each case. 

CASES

Self-directed learning is supported with 900+ basic science and clinical medicine cases. The case-based learning experience may be enhanced through synchronous or asynchronous online analysis, discussion, and debate among students. Each case has associated comprehension questions to be answered, which may be emailed directly to faculty. Explanatory answers help learners understand incorrect answer choices for quicker mastery of content.
