Course description

Anderson Review: Basic Science

NEW Format: Online recorded modules of lectures along with access to all Powerpoint files to make study and viewing of the entire review accessible from your computer any time you need it.

****ALL FORMAT COMPLETELY REVISED FOR THE NEW BOARD FORMAT***

Information based on learning content areas and 20 years teaching and writing board exam questions will be given in the following basic medical science areas:

  • Anatomy
  • Physiology
  • Biochemistry
  • Pathology
  • Microbiology – immunology

Based on the change by NABNE to an integrated case-based basic science examination these five topics will be integrated to the degree possible to enhance integrated learning. Some areas such as cellular physiology, portions of biochemistry, and portions of immunology will necessarily be taught separately as required.

The on-line learning modules will cover:
(Note: Anatomy includes pertinent embryology and histology)

  • Introductory cell physiology, general pathology and microbial physiology
  • The neurological system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
  • The Cardiovascular system; hematopoesis, anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
  • The Pulmonary system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
  • The Musculo-skeletal system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
  • The Digestive system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
  • The Renal and Urinary system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
  • The Immune system / Microbiology; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
  • The Endocrine system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
  • The Reproductive system; embryology, anatomy, physiology, pathology / biochemistry

These reviews follow the NPLEX/NABNE outline and format for the current year. They are intended to form a core of information from which the student can focus their study for the basic science NPLEX board exams. They of course are not intended to replace personal preparation but rather give overviews to the topic areas and point out common areas where board questions arise.
