Medical Education in United States : Cost Vs Opportunities

United States is one of the most preferable destinations of medical education. However, the tuition and cost expenses are always a matter of issue.

Preparation for the boards…..

20 days to go for the boards. This exit is a ticket to the clinicals. Its going tough but has also induced some more interest in Medicine.

Cranial Nerve Zero- The 13th Cranial Nerve

Several tests have been conducted to provide evidence that Cranial Nerve Zero is responsible for our responses to pheromones.  The 13th cranial nerve known by the name Nervus terminalis or Terminal nerve is most often destroyed during dissection procedure making it unavailable to our sense of vision. This made the existence of Cranial Nerve Zero disputed and we don’t see this in our medical textbooks till date. Cranial Nerve Zero was first discovered by German Scientist Gustav Fritsch in 1878 in brain of sharks. After that scientists found this nerve in whales. Whales are such animals which through evolution have … Continue reading Cranial Nerve Zero- The 13th Cranial Nerve

Top 5 Youtube Channels for Learning Basic Medical Sciences

Basic Medical Sciences here generally refers to 6 subjects of medical discipline i.e. Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Microbiology.  Choosing the right ones out for your specific learning purpose might be quite cumbersome.  You may encounter such situations when you start up searching something and end up viewing something else.
