Learn neuropathology and make it stick.

Sometimes, you need to review your pathology, but there just isn’t enough time to read a textbook, or even a review book. You need to cover and retain essential information in a way that fits into your schedule. That’s the goal of this course.

What the course covers

This mini-course covers 12 high-yield neuropathology topics (like head trauma, Alzheimer disease, and astrocytoma) in four weeks, starting the first Monday after you sign up.

Each topic is covered in a concise, well-organized, nicely-illustrated lesson that you can get through quickly. The lessons focus on tough areas, and give you strategies for remembering the material that you can put to use right away. 

How the course is delivered

You don’t have to go to a website to download material – you just have to open your email. Lessons are delivered to your inbox three times a week, with additional, shorter summaries to reinforce what you learned during the week. You’ll get:

  • Four weeks of material
  • Three lessons a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday)
  • Weekly recaps on Saturdays
  • A final wrap-up and self-test at the end.

The bottom line

All the time-consuming parts are done (the gathering of sources, the distilling of information, the organizing, the scheduling of study time) – so your time is spent really learning and understanding the material. You’ll review your neuropathology in a minimal amount of time, with a maximum amount of retention.

    Hi, Thanks, all crucial informs during this year. I realy approve of your mini course. Because I wish be neurologist, when i graduate medical school.So I strive to join your spectacular course. otherwise I study in Azerbaijan medical school.

  2. Maya says:

    Hello, this is great! But.. is it possible to sign up and do the course in february or march? I have really busy few weeks ahead of me and I’m afraid I don’t have the time right now..

  3. Kristine says:

    Yes – definitely! It will restart every Monday – so you can certainly do it later, in the spring.

  4. Imran Tahir says:

    I dont have time right now, but can I do this Mini Course in July of 2014?. Please let me know.


  5. Kristine says:

    Yes – definitely. The course starts again every Monday – so you can take it any time.

  6. SCM says:

    What is the background expected for a student to be able to get a lot out of this mini course? For example, year in medical school?

  7. pavani mannava says:

    Hi,Thanks for you information through out these months.I am very happy to listen about this mini course,it would really be helpful to retain the information.

  8. Alex says:

    This sounds great! Just in time for my neurology rotation. I would like to suggest two pathology topics for future mini courses that are not as well represented as things like general surg path or hematopathology. I suggest cytology or molecular pathology to be done next. Thank you Kristine!

  9. Joanna says:

    I will be needing this in February or end of January so I will sign up then.

  10. Horacio Sigler says:

    Thanks for the reminder, Dr. Krafts. I’m in starting tomorrow…


  11. Kristine says:

    Great – see you then!

  12. Kristine says:

    Hi Alex – I’m glad the timing was right! Thanks for your ideas for future mini-courses: I will definitely put those on the list.

  13. Kristine says:

    Hi Sophie – the course would work fine for anyone who has had some histology (so you know what cells of the nervous system look like – although we’ll review that a bit) and some anatomy (so you know what the cerebellum is, and the brainstem, etc.). That’s about it – so first year medical students could definitely take the course and be fine.

  14. Kristine says:

    Thanks, Pavani! You can read more about the course and sign up here if you wish.

  15. Nahid says:

    Really I would like to register for but I can’t

    hi how can i sign up from india?

  19. Mohini Dave says:

    How to make payment? It becomes very difficult to pay in dollars.

  20. Kristine says:

    Hi Mohini Dave –
    You can pay using PayPal or credit card – we get a lot of international orders. Thanks for your interest!

  21. Katie says:

    Thanks for this looks great and hope to sign up later in 2014, agree with Alex about future topics – would love to see a cytology mini-course.

  22. ahmed says:

  27. Irabor Godstime says:

    Please,I leave in Nigeria and the paypal system does not allow me to use my master card.It looks like we in Nigeria has been counted out of the course.

  28. FC says:

    Can we keep the material sent to us for reference if we sign up?

  29. Kristine says:

    Yes, definitely! The lessons are yours to keep for future reference.

  30. Kristine says:

    Dear Irabor –
    I don’t think PayPal has left Nigeria out of its services – I believe it is operable in almost every country. You can either use a credit card, or you can use paypal itself to link to your bank account. Either way will work from our end.

    Thanks for your interest!

  31. Rajan says:

    It will be Great to have IMMUNOLOGY short course as well Dr. Kristine. All that Adaptive, Innate immunity, types of T cells, B cells , NKC, dendritic cells, antigen presenting cells, MHC-HLA are all nightmares. I sincerely hope you can make an interesting course like your CLOT and BLEED review. I will be the first one to purchase that.

    Thank you,


  32. Kristine says:

    Thanks, Rajan – that’s a great idea! I will definitely consider that – I know immunology can be a real bear.

  33. Negar says:

    I appreciate this kind of course Dr. tnx so much.

  34. Hannah says:

    I was wondering if the course was more suited for USMLE step 1, 2, or path residency level. Will sign up for it regardless, but wanted to gauge on the level. Thank you!

  35. Kristine says:

    Hi Hannah – the course is more of a medical-school-level course. I have had comments that it was helpful for USMLE step 1 – but also have had path residents tell me that they liked the course too. I have geared it more towards medical school/boards but I guess even residents like a review of basic must-know facts! I hope that helps.

  36. Kristin Briscoe says:

    Just trying to plan my studying efficiently- looks like I have forgotten a lot of neuro! Just wondered how long each session was and if I have time to add it to my study schedule!
    Thanks Kristine- PS this is really a great Website! I wish I would have found it sooner. 🙂

  37. Kristine says:

    Hi Kristin – Thanks for your interest in the course! Each session should take about 10 minutes to read through. You’ll get three sessions a week (M, W, and F), with short summaries of the week’s most important concepts on Saturdays. The last Saturday’s session will contain a final exam so you can quiz yourself.

    Hope that helps!

    Glad you like my website – thank you!


  38. SANDHYA says:

    Hi Kristine:

  39. Kristine says:

    Hi Sandhya –
    Yes – you can sign up now, keep your confirmation email, and click the link in that email whenever you’re ready to take the course. Thanks!

  40. nancy o'dowd says:

    really interested in immunology coursehope it is soon! you are brilliant to have created your easy to understand path classes

  41. Kristine says:

    Thanks, Nancy! So glad you like the courses! Actually I’m working on a histology review that I thought would be good timing for new students – then immunology! Plus some other stuff. 🙂

  42. wondimu amado says:

    I Like It.

  43. Yousuf says:

    For how many weeks is the course after all?

  44. Kristine says:

    It’s a four-week course with three lessons (and one review) per week.

  45. Jasmine says:

    Is it too late for me to sign up for this course? Pathology has been saving my life for the past 3 years and I know it will keep saving my life.

    I’m at the Neuro stage in Med School and I have a feeling this could come in handy.

    Thank you Kristine for starting this website. I don’t think you truly understand how valuable it is.

  46. Kristine says:

    Thanks, Jasmine!! No, it’s not too late 🙂 If you sign up today (Monday), you’ll start the course today. We start it every Monday so you could also wait until later if you don’t get to it today.

    Glad you like Pathology Student!


  47. Gauri says:

    Hey! I was just wondering what this course is all about…do you have any sample material? Is this more of a course to go over with med school courses or will it be useful for my dedicated Step 1 study time?

  48. Kristine says:

    Hi Gauri – The neuropathology course covers 12 high-yield neuropath topics (like degenerative diseases, various tumors and trauma). The lessons each take about 10 minutes to go through, and they hit the most important points for each topic, with a before and after quiz so you can test your comprehension. At the end of each lesson, I provide answers and helpful tips for things I’ve noticed students tend to have trouble with. I think the course would work well either in conjunction with your neuropath coverage in med school, or as a relatively painless way to review neuropathology for boards. It is not totally comprehensive though (there are more than 12 topics to cover in neuropath) – so you’d want to supplement with a board review book. The idea is to provide the content in an easy-to-read, painless format so you can get through it and learn (or relearn) stuff in a short amount of time each day.

  49. gina says:

    Hi There –
    I’m a licensed veterinary technician. I’ve only been licensed for a year and I’m SHOCKED at how much material has slipped through my fingers! I loved pathology so would like to get your periodic emails. Only trouble is when I try to sign up within your website the sign up process is interrupted by an ad for your neuro. course. Any ideas on how to make that go away?
    Thanks for what you are doing.

  50. Kristine says:

    Thanks so much, Gina! I’m so glad you are finding something useful on Pathology Student. Thanks also for letting me know about the Neuro thing…I think I was missing a small piece of html code that may have interfered with the signup process – I added that, and it seems to be working from my end. Could you try again and let me know if it works for you? Thank you!
