Spotlight on.... PathCAL

PathCAL is a set of web-based tutorials designed to help students understand the basic pathological principles of disease by exploiting techniques in learning psychology. 

The tutorials can be used by beginners for learning the subject for the first time or by more advanced students for review and self- assessment. The tutorials were written and developed by experienced university teachers over a ten year period and have been subsequently edited and enhanced by both staff and students. There are 115 tutorials with more in development.

Why not take a look at this resource and see how it can work for you!
