Mini-lectures on You Tube

Hundreds of short lectures for health care providers and students are freely available for viewing on You Tube and the Clinical Cases and Images Blog has posted a large compilation. Based on my brief sampling, the quality of the content varies considerably. Many of the lectures are outstanding while some are “so-so.” There appears little in the way of disclosure and no information about Pharma influence or the lack thereof. So, (gasp!) viewers must rely on their own critical thinking skills to separate the wheat from the chaff. (That, after all, is the way it is, or should be, with all learning resources). There seems to be more than enough good material in this collection to make it worth adding to my list of links.
