best online video courses for medical students

1. Boards and beyond

Boards and Beyond contains 400 concise videos of more than 120 hours of teaching. It is a comprehensive review of almost every topic in First Aid, but instead of bullet-point style text, Jason Ryan teaches you First Aid in a video format, just like Pathoma does for pathology. He emphasizes particularly high yield points, explains concepts with simple, yet easy to remember illustrations, includes pictures and diagrams, and of particular importance – he has a very charismatic way of speaking with a tone that emanates wisdom and comfort. Like a cool uncle who you could always turn to for life advice. Except he’s a cardiologist and really wants you to do well on boards

2. Pathoma

Pathoma is a tremendous resource in studying for USMLE Step 1 and preparing for pathology exams. Dr. Sattar’s lectures cover all of the high yield pathology points. He explains everything from a basic mechanistic approach which is critical because that is how the questions are tested, but more importantly, it develops true understanding which is never forgotten.

3. Dr. Najeeb

Fantastic videos, very detailed, simple explanations! Great for not only laying out the basics of the knowledge on any medically related subjects but also mastering difficult concepts!
Dr.Najeeb's medical lectures are one of the best resources in the market right now for learning medical science. It is so well arranged and comprehensively reviewed that there is hardly any chance for doubt. I absolutely recommend these to anyone who is interested to learn medicine. The only bad aspect is that his videos are relatively slow-paced but you can always watch in 2x mode.

4. Osmosis

Osmosis is an outstanding resource for your USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK studies. The online video learning platform that boasts providing, “Everything you need to succeed in the health sciences.”
As a comprehensive board review resource that includes videos, flashcards, a QBank, and allows the creation of a personalized study schedule, Osmosis provides an integrated and advanced system of learning for medical students. With hundreds of positive reviews, and excellently designed interface, and a mission statement of, “Empowering the world’s clinicians and caregivers with the best learning experience possible,” Osmosis is one of our top online learning picks.


The most widely used USMLE preparation material by students all over the world. It contains almost everything you need to ace USMLE exams. Kaplan’s USMLE preparation portal offers comprehensive and in-depth video lectures on a wide variety of topics covered on the USMLE, a Qbank with more than 2000 questions, downloadable content, and even several stimulated board exams.
But, they are not as high yield as other sources and videos are of low quality with not so modern app support. They are expensive for a normal student.

6. Stanford Medicine 25

The Stanford Medicine 25 team is the core group of physicians, faculty, and students led by Dr. Abraham Verghese. Each member plays various roles with the Stanford Medicine 25 team and our Program for Bedside Medicine.
Available for free on Youtube and Stanford Medicine 25 website, it is almost a must-watch video channel for every medical student preparing bedside medicine.
