LEIPZIG, Germany, June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- eLearning provider Lecturio today announced it has now put together more than 3,000 online video lectures to help medical schools in emerging and developing countries produce physicians possessing knowledge and skills on par with those of newly minted doctors who studied at universities in the United States and elsewhere in the West.
The video lectures represent more than 500 combined hours of state-of-the-art instruction delivered by top-tier professors from six of the world's 11 highest-ranked medical schools, according to Lecturio.
To date, more than 200,000 medical students in over 175 countries, but mainly the U.S., have utilized the Lecturio videos to supplement what they learn in the classroom, the company said.
"Our extensive and growing library of medical lectures is helping students everywhere to acquire the knowledge necessary to become great doctors, but it is especially helpful to students in Second World and Third World countries where easy, convenient, face-to-face access to outstanding instructors is largely absent," said Martin Schlichte, Lecturio founder and CEO.
"Any medical student with a personal computer or mobile device and a wireless connection can access the Lecturio video library," he added.
Each video features a lecture by an acclaimed professor and weaves into the presentation a powerfully effective mix of animations, photographs, anatomic illustrations, and more, Schlichte said.
Additionally, videos are accompanied by fully searchable transcripts and over 1,000 in-depth articles that expand upon the material covered in the lectures, he indicated.
The Lecturio library also includes more than 10,000 examination questions that can be used to assess student knowledge or to prepare for taking profession-entry or licensing tests, Schlichte said.
"Our goal is to help every nation have more and better doctors," said Schlichte.
