"I have found MedBridge to be a great adjunct to my "learning library". I simply can't beat the convenience of these courses.

"I love the feature of being able to replay videos over and over and review best slides. Perfect to really drill in and learn what you’re looking for. I also enjoy the resource link for special tests and that they send some to you via email to keep you on point for review and spark interest in looking up other tests. Recently started using the 3D feature which will be really helpful to share with patients for anatomy education...truly a 'bridge' for learning in our technical age."
