Online tutorials teach theory for medical skills. They contain text, images, and video.
Each tutorial is made of different lessons. The website tracks which lessons you have completed.
There are tutorials on ECG, chest x-ray, ultrasound and other topics as well.
To access the tutorials, use the Skill Modules pulldown menu.
When learning to swim or ride a bike, you need to practice your new skill. The same is true for a medical skill.
Learning a skill requires 3 components:theory, practice and feedback.
After you learn theory in a tutorial, you need to practice.
Practice modules for ECG, chest x-ray, ultrasound and other medical skills are on teachingmedicine.com.
Practice modules contain many cases for you to practice and create your personal logbook.
Immediate feedback is provided to you when you practice. Case discussions further explain important details.
Practice modules are found in the Skill Modules pulldown.
Your hard work and practice is important to record. Many schools now require you to do this.

Medical School is organized into lots of different Sections.
Each Section is broken down into Subsections.
And each Subsection is then organized into Objectives.
Click on an Objective to view all the available Learning Resources for that objective.
There are many different types of Learning Resources.
Learning Resources are uploaded by YOU and everyone else who uses TeachingMedicine.com in an organized, crowd sourced sharing effort.
TeachingMedicine.com keeps stats on topics you studied and WHEN you studied them, to help you stay organized.
To access all these resources, click on Resources. This function is new and currently in Beta mode, but will hopefully grow quickly. Volunteer helpers welcomed! Contact us.
