Basic Science Videos & Teaching Scripts New!
These 30 videos and scripts provide a good resource for basic sciences teaching as medical schools transition to earlier introduction to clinical training and competency-based curricula. Basic sciences remain critical to clinical medicine and should be taught across the entire medical education experience. Vertical integration between the basic sciences and clinical medicine during the ob-gyn clerkship will stimulate deeper learning and solidify students’ understanding of fundamental principles.
