About This Website

For the past ten years this website has helped thousands of healthcare professionals practice clinical skills such as ECG interpretation, heart and lung sounds, taking blood pressure, abdominal sounds and medical terminology.

Improving clinical skills has been our team’s theme since our start in 2009. We provide training via desktop and mobile web apps. Our website is designed to complement classroom training and clinical experience, helping to improve your skills and professional confidence. We provide presentations as well as practice drills and quizzes.

Instructors and students can use our dashboard to monitor learning progress and quiz scores.
