Nothing else has come close to bridging that gap between the real human cadaveric dissection experience and trying to figure out what a structure is by looking at a picture.
3D4Medical Courses have allowed me to clearly understand the functions that each structure has.
This is one of the first 3D products that I've worked with, it's very intuitive and easy to use. My children can use it.

Most Comprehensive online board review resource for numerous specialties I have seen. Excellent quality and quantity of questions available. Wish I had this sooner.
Board vitals is the ideal complementary review source for any resident seeking to maximize their board exam review. The otolaryngology questions challenge you to apply your knowledge of frequently-tested ENT principles in a variety of fields, ranging from otology and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery to pediatric otolaryngoloy and head & neck oncology. Each question is written in a board-style format and each answer offers a detailed review of key concepts. Otolaryngology residents, myself included, have been waiting for this type of review material to be available to us and it's finally here. I highly recommend it!
BoardVitals is a great adjunct to your study materials when preparing for the NBDE II. The questions help to prepare you well for the exam and cover a wide variety of important topics. The ease of completing the practice questions online at your convenience is one of the strengths of the resource. In addition, the detailed answer explanations help to review the important concepts and take away points from the question. I highly recommend it!
This question bank is exactly what I need to prepare to take my pediatric boards. The scope of the material is extremely high yield and really focuses on what I need to know to be most success ful when taking the boards. The answer discussions for each question are well written and are mini-lectures in and unto themselves. I would recommend this question bank to anyone looking to improve their general pediatric knowledge.
Several of our May BSN grads who have passed the NCLEX have stopped in to say hi. Uniformly, they've said how great BoardVitals is!
The BoardVitals neurology question bank questions challenge your clinical knowledge while providing detailed and clear explanations that add to your understanding of the pathophysiology of the neurosciences. This is a great way to beef up your knowledge for the boards and RITE exams!
It's great to have a bank of so many questions, AP and CP, that I can take with me wherever I go- no need to drag around a heavy textbook! BoardVitals makes it easy to make use of even a few minutes of downtime!
I have recommended and will continue to recommend BV to the many people I'm in contact with, both at MGH and elsewhere. As I have now seen the content of the actual board exam, I cannot comment on board content but suffice it to say the results speak. BoardVitals made studying for boards painless and effective.
I absolutely love BoardVitals. It's ideal for board test prep and recommend it for anyone who is preparing for their exams.
I have found BoardVitals to be the single most useful resource in preparing for the Radiology Core exam. In their database, there are over 1000 questions drawn from every section of the Core exam, including Physics, with answers and appropriate references. To-date, it is the most complete and realistic simulation of the Core exam that I've been able to find. I strongly recommend it as an essential exam preparation resource.
Excellent questions with thorough explanations. The question "stems" are longer & more complex than most other board review courses, as are the answer choices. I think that this forces me to be a more focused reader and is a better reflection of the type and length of question that will be on the real exam.
This is the only Cardiology Question Bank that pulls together content from so many sources. It's great to have such an in-depth resource for both the boards and the re-certification exams.
Just so you know, we achieved a 100% pass rate on our national board examination from our last class. This was, largely in part, due to BoardVitals!
Decker has made over many years extraordinary contributions to both Medical and Surgical education! In my opinion, Decker is #1, and looking to better and more wonderful years ahead!
Weekly Curriculum is an outstanding resource for both study and review. The readings are concise, clinically relevant and extremely high yield. The associated PDFs are worth saving as a valuable resource to come back to over and over again.
MedCram videos are very informative medical summaries for the active student, whether learning for the first time, reviewing for an important exam, or during clinical rotations. The illustrations are terrific and flow nicely with the discussion. The content is packed full of teaching pearls with high yield facts. Wish we had access to these videos when I was in medical school!
Dr. Seheult’s clinical experience and illustrations set his medical videos apart. He has an amazing ability to explain complex topics in an understandable way... while emphasizing the most important concepts. MedCram definitely helped me get through PA school. I've come back to these lectures often as a practicing PA for a quick review-- Can’t thank you enough!
As a critical care nurse, MedCram has been a tremendous asset to my working knowledge over the years. The explanations are not only concise, but practical and relevant as well. The drawings and analogies reinforce concepts and help me explain them to patients. MedCram has given me an advantage in my current graduate classes, and continues to be my primary resource prior to each class lecture.
1st year medical student chiming in. This is a very helpful series and the majority of my class is using it to prep for interactive medical lectures.
I am an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon preparing for my Oral Board Exam, and Just wanted to say what a tremendous resource this website and program has been. What a perfectly concise review of these topics! So I just wanted to say thank you. In 20 or 30 minutes, Dr. Seheult explains what would take 2 or 3 hours of reading to review these subjects. Thank You!
Wow. I am an ICU nurse and have been working with liver failure patients for years and it's like a light suddenly came on! So many things make sense now. Thanks.
I have been exposed to 3 or 4 ECG software programs, and the PALMs software had the cleanest interface, and presents efficient learning based on sound conceptual framework. I think our medicine residents would certainly benefit from it.
It's a great tool, and reinforces pattern recognition of abnormal ECG characteristics, as well as STEMIs ... You will definitely love it!
I learned EKGs using this module better than any other method in medical school... I think the PALM series is a phenomenal resource for medical students and residents alike and it differentiates itself from other learning modules by its simple but to the point presentations. It covers all the basics and gradually builds up in its level of difficulty preventing burn out and boredom.
These modules were tremendously helpful for me. I found it very helpful to see multiple presentations of everything in order to get a broad scope and intuition for what I was learning. Additionally, the format of the program was fun and interactive, in a way that kept me engaged while pushing me to improve.
It definitely forced me to look at the 'big picture' and try to recognize histopathologic patterns rather than take my time and try to locate individual cells to deduce the pathology.
The repetition drilled it in my head--it provided great practice. Viewing the pathologies in different forms allowed me to see the patterns.
I found the number of slides useful because there is a huge amount of variation with the same condition so seeing one or two examples in class just isn't enough.
This exercise really helped us learn how to recognize the different cellular pathologies (or normal) when compared to each other. Also it is very useful in defining what is normal since normal can be different.
I think it was much easier to learn histopathology when it was shown with contrasting slides. It was also easier to learn by looking at a LOT of images and seeing patterns instead of talking about a small handful -- I found that I learned more in the module than in most classes.
The game-type set up made the exercise fun.
This is very cool!
I found the module to be extremely helpful. It kept me engaged while I was learning the [dermatology] morphologies rather than staring passively at pictures. I wish more of these types of modules could be incorporated into the curriculum.
Osmosis teaches faculty how today’s health professional students learn to become tomorrow’s health professionals. If you want to remain relevant as an educator—and have fun growing while you do—then I strongly encourage you to engage fully with the teaching and learning power of the Osmosis platform.
Osmosis has changed my study life. It gives me the tools to not only do well in my medical school classes, but also to make learning a fun and interactive experience! I love that Osmosis organizes everything for me and offers me preformed questions.
Osmosis is the best resource for individuals who want to save time and stay organized! It is the best for note taking, making flashcards, and studying. I also love the Osmosis videos- they contain high yield information and are presented in a very clear manner. Osmosis is great because it has everything you need in one place and it does the organizing for you, making it extremely valuable and time saving. I spend the majority of my days on Osmosis and I love it!
Using the Osmosis platform to learn has transformed my exam scores from 40% to over 80% in less than two months. The spaced repetition method is so highly effective, and has improved my class ranking so drastically, that I finally have the confidence necessary to achieve great things as a medical student and as a physician. I am so grateful that I was introduced to Osmosis by Ross University because it absolutely changed my life and eased my transition back into the world of Academia.
Compared to other study resources I've used, Osmosis has multi-platform accessibility, with a better-quality question bank, and entertaining and informational videos. What I love the most about Osmosis is that it is structured to your schedule and allows you to create a daily requirement to keep you on task!
Nothing comes close to the way Osmosis breaks down the vast amount of information thrown at you and tells you exactly what to take away from it. I can't pick only one favorite thing, but if I had to, it would probably be the videos that are given when I upload my lectures. When I don't understand a concept, I know right where to look for a better explanation.
Osmosis is a powerful tool used to improve how students approach learning by developing more sophisticated and lasting understanding of the material. It is awesome that Osmosis follows popular and new neuroscience ideas on learning and improving how you study. I think Osmosis is an immediately relevant thing that most medical students would enjoy learning more about.
I love that Osmosis videos are concise and animated. It keeps my attention while still giving me everything I need to know for my exam. Definitely worth the investment!
I love Osmosis because it provides us with one place where we can put all of the information that we need for our Medical School classes. A lot of our study habits require us to put a lot of information INTO our brain, with no opportunity to see how well we can recall it. Osmosis' quiz feature allows us to see how well we can recall the information and highlight areas where our understanding may be lacking. Overall, it's a much more interactive learning environment which, I believe is more representative of how Medical School curriculum should be. Studies have shown that the amount of information that you retain via quizzing and teaching is significantly higher than reading alone, and Osmosis provides a platform for us to do those things. Osmosis has helped me in my classes by allowing me to tailor my studying and become more of an "active" learner instead of a "passive" learner.
Osmosis has all the resources anyone could need, vetted by professionals that have walked this path, combined into one place with the ability to use and schedule it efficiently. I put myself into serious trouble from overextending myself with too many resources and was in danger of failing. Osmosis helped me reign myself in, and I started really grasping the material and was amazed at how much extra time it gave me to do the things I enjoy.
Osmosis is a great resource that I have been using for the past year. The videos provide a wonderful foundation for my learning, and concepts are clearly and concisely explained with up to date information. I also appreciate that I can actively apply and consolidate my learning through USMLE style practice questions and quizzes. I would highly recommend this resource for all students studying medicine or healthcare-related courses!
I realized after my first med school test that I needed a more efficient way to study. I love how Osmosis makes it so easy to create flashcards and also use flashcards that my classmates have made. The collaboration of students is really what separates Osmosis from other study resources.
I love that Osmosis is an all-encompassing study hub! I like that all my materials are centralized, and that I can always find more info when class materials aren't enough!
Osmosis is an exceptional tool that has already greatly improved my study habits in the short time I've been using it. From the pre-generated board fact notecards, to the video descriptions of high yield topics, Osmosis has it all! The app is very user friendly and I've never had any issues with syncing the app data to the website. With Osmosis, it is so much easier to collaborate with other students and utilize each other's notecards. With Anki, that wasn't really possible. I also love how the notecards are all directly linked to the slide in which the information came from, which I think is super helpful. I've saved so much time with Osmosis and I think it is a great tool for any medical student!
Osmosis allows me to synthesize what I have learned from self-study in order to better prepare myself for medical school. Although a lot of the material is out of the scope of my knowledge at this time, making mistakes and seeing the correct answers allows me to learn about things that I haven't been exposed to in a clinical setting yet.
Osmosis is definitely one of the top supplementary tools that I use for learning. Osmosis videos have helped me remember tons of medical conditions by adding a visual aid. I really like that it puts in extra links on my lecture slides that I can click on and find out more information about the medical conditions and other things I am learning in class. I also love the extra resources, such as flashcards, and the ability to create a personalized schedule for Step studying!
I wish I had used Osmosis earlier on in my studies because it has made studying seamless and so much easier! I really enjoyed the clinical questions. When I came across a topic, I felt rusty on, I could just click the word which led me to a review and I could add flashcards related to that topic!
I love the videos Osmosis has that explain difficult concepts in a simplified and easy to understand way! The questions and layout of Osmosis make learning and retaining concepts much easier and less stressful.
My favorite part of Osmosis is their vast variety of videos with clear explanations and animations. And to help secure the knowledge, the use of spaced repetition flashcards makes learning engaging and more enjoyable.
At Dell Medical School we teach modules on mechanisms of disease that start at the end of February of their 1st year of medical school and the pathophysiology of Cardiology, Pulmonary and Renal. We provide students with the learning objectives for this course and some recommended resources with one of them being Osmosis. I had the opportunity to review the Cardiology and related Osmosis videos and felt that they were not only accurate, but they met the needs of the way students like to learn in keeping it consolidated and brief, entertaining and informative. I also thought that Osmosis would not only be good for our medical students, but also as a review for interns and residents, and anyone in training to build their confidence.
Osmosis really provides a lot of memory hooks for you. You can choose to use all of Osmosis’s flashcards, all of your own flashcards, or you can mix the two. The base idea is that using spaced repetition everyday is creating your foundation.
Osmosis allows me to devote more time to leadership positions and my personal life while maintaining my academics. To be honest, my grades have improved only 4-6%, but I am able to do this spending significantly less time than I was previously. And the lecture analysis feature is such a powerful tool that allows me to not just see generic information, but a study aid specifically for my class. It's the whole package!
Osmosis is the best tool for staying organized and integrating classwork with high yield resources, all in one platform. The Osmosis Flashcards are not only extremely relevant, but they also feature cross-references to additional resources. These flashcards, in conjunction with the Osmosis spaced repetition method, have helped me to remember details that I studied from past semesters. I feel that it will help me be more prepared when I begin preparing for Step 1.
As a non-traditional student, Osmosis has really helped me with streamlining my study time. I have other obligations outside of medical school, to include family and military commitments. I find that the best way to study is by creating questions and then practicing them over and over. The spaced repetition, particularly with the flash cards, also helps me in the days leading up to an exam. I utilized Anki for the first block of medical school but then decided to utilize the flashcard function in Osmosis. I find that it is more streamlined and I don't have to worry about syncing my devices. I have the Osmosis app downloaded on all my devices and use the flashcards/questions when I can't be in front of my computer. I've been able to significantly reduce the amount of study time I put in while still maintaining great scores, particularly in Anatomy. The questions and the links to First Aid are probably the most helpful.
Osmosis is great for integrative learning and cutting down time on making study products! I love that it gives me the ability to annotate slides and create flash cards from slides that can be viewed from my phone.
I would say these videos are a happy medium between lecture and casual online learning. I definitely think they would be useful because they go into a lot more detail than lecturers often can, and students mostly prefer a visual aid with revision rather than having to read a textbook.
I was very impressed by the range and scope of the content and can see it as a very useful tool to complement our teaching programs here. It could also be useful from a revision point of view for those that have been out of the discipline for a period of time or as a means of providing some key concepts to those moving into pharmacology from a related discipline. I feel these would also be really useful for students to review alongside blocks of teaching or ahead of practicals or assessments as a means of developing their independent and self-directed learning approaches.
I am quite pleased to comment on the StatRef and AnatomyTV [Primal Pictures] products. We have a diploma school of nursing as part of our health system. These two products are used heavily by our students. Also, staff nurses and others are using these products. Ali Abbass is a great rep, easy to contact and work with. There have been no problems here with access or down time. In the first month, the StatRef book on fluids and electrolytes had 78 hits. This was before some orientations were even complete. I certainly hope to add to our StatRef products for our next budget year.
There is a digital healthcare revolution underway that is fundamentally changing the way medical information is shared, presented and used by physicians, educators and students. At the heart of this revolution is Primal Pictures, the World’s First Complete 3D Model of Human Anatomy.
My suggestion is if you want to present your clinic or services as being progressive and professional then this is the product for you. This is truly an exceptional new program and is highly recommended as both a reference and an educational resource for anyone dealing with human anatomy.
The 3D real-time viewer I was pleased to use is AMAZING!! It's so easy to use and so beautiful. My colleagues were completely surprised by the astonishing quality and simplicity in which it is to use. As a radiologist we use images all day, every day. Your images are THE images to use in presentations or just for anatomic correlation during evaluation of scans.
Primal Pictures has succeeded in developing an online Anatomy and Physiology course in which the material is broken up into modules with impressive 3D images that can be rotated at will. Modules allow students to easily locate and review specific topics and include a lengthy quiz module. Quiz questions follow various formats and provide students with immediate feedback.
I find the tool helpful since it is loaded with great illustrations; the layer-by-layer illustrations make a great learning tool for students to know the location, components and relationships between the components for a system. There are some great animations for some of the processes. Altogether, this is a great tool to help students in Biology fields learn about the basics of Anatomy and Physiology. At the same time, this is also a tool that can cater to students who are in field of medicine. This program allows the instructor and students to customize the information suited for their individual needs.
The Primal Head and Neck software demonstrates structures and movements that were previously difficult to visualize with beautifully designed interactive graphics which has definitely taken anatomical education and presentation to the next level.
Anatomy.tv is a great tool for our dental hygiene students to study head and neck anatomy. It is especially useful for our online students who don't have the benefit of visual learning in the onsite classroom setting. Head and neck anatomy – bones, muscles, nerves, arteries, etc are tough to visualize and this tool definitely aids the visual learner. I like the layering capability to allow students to study and review selected areas and then 'put it all together' for an overall impression. Another good piece of teaching technology to place in our toolkit. Thanks!
You will not find a comparable degree of versatility, depth, richness of content or pure good looks.
Anatomy.tv is a great resource during A&P I and II. Especially for visual learners, it is a great tool to be used as an additional technique to study for exams.
We've had Anatomy.tv for a while now and every time I use it I am amazed by how detailed it is. One of my favorite features is the ability in the MRI area to click on a structure and have it highlighted on the actual MRI. I also love the videos, especially the shoulder rotation one.
Really exciting - haven't had this kind of interactive fun since playing "Operation" as a kid. I could see this as useful aid in student presentations, called my co-workers in to try it out as well and everyone including sonographer, mammo tech, OB/GYN, and LPN studying to become RN loved it.
Our investigators really appreciate the step by step guidance, the collaboration tools and the protocol completeness dashboard features. Our goal is to use Protocol Builder as our protocol writing hub to enhance quality, reduce review time, and improve adherence to federal and IRB regulations.
Protocol Builder is helping us improve the consistency of our protocols, so we can work on protocol quality. The protocol dashboard has been a great tool to quickly check for completeness, especially with more complex protocols.
STAT!Ref [TDS] is ‘the little company that could.’ Working with customer service representatives over the telephone and with a regional sales representative in-person is easy. Questions are addressed quickly with few problems.
I find STAT!Ref to be my go to online reference. I no longer need to buy textbooks or keep my office cluttered with them.
I find that today, I am again sending on Stat!Ref Evidence Alerts to my users. I wanted to let you know that I really appreciate this service. The "comments from clinical raters" is invaluable. That is the bottom line for me - good comments, I send the info to my clinicians; negative comments, I don't waste their time. The presentation of the data is excellent - easy to read - not so busy that it is distracting. This service saves my users a lot of time, and gets the useable evidence to them in quick time!
Evidence Alerts is a convenient way of keeping up to date on the different specialties.
I really like Stat!ref and also evidence alerts. I use Stat!ref every working day.

To me it's essential to save users and dentists time... we've never had a single problem... STAT!Ref has made it easy, it's been great.
STAT!Ref offers a smart search engine, so the searcher doesn't need to be.
I like the following aspects of StatRef: The display of titles in an A-Z format, with the choice of viewing by discipline, the custom filter, allowing searching by evidence-based medicine, and the very large selection of titles from which to choose.
I find Stat!Ref to be my go to online reference. I no longer need to buy textbooks or keep my office cluttered with them.
Stat!Ref is outstanding. Your program has been an invaluable resource for my care plans and drug research.
