Virtual Labs of Cardiology, Neurophysiology and Many More

That’s why I’m an admirer of Stumble Upon. I’ve recently come across the Virtual Labs of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. An other great example for education. They feature:

Of course, I started with the Cardiology Lab:

The focus of this lab is on heritable diseases of the heart. You are cast here as a virtual intern to accompany a doctor examining three different patients. Each patient is examined using more than one diagnostic tool, and at each stage, the doctor will invite you to examine the patient yourself and ask for your opinion.


I find the quizzes extremely helpful. Check it out!

  5. Who are allowed to enter or to visit these virtual labs? I’ve seen some virtual labs here in our place but those are for caregivers where students can learn how to practice what they learned from their Instructors.

    HHMI resources are great (though time-consuming) for students. I’ve been using their one on Immunology with my IB Biology class.
