Marshall University School of Medicine provides "The Interactive Patient" which allows the user to simulate an actual patient encounter. This interactive teaching tool, created for physicians, residents and medical students, offers a case with a chief complaint to the user who then has to interact with the patient requesting additional history, performing a physical exam, and reviewing laboratory data and x-rays. After the workup, the user is encouraged to submit a diagnosis and a treatment plan to the system based on the information obtained. All submitted answers will be evaluated and feedback will be provided. Completing this case successfully provides CME credit (with payment of an administrative fee).
This interactive program is part of the "Whole Frog" project and allows interactive
dissection of a frog, as well as the capability to make on-the-fly movies. A Tutorial is available as well as a Virtual Frog Builder Game to test your knowledge of frog anatomy.
Use the Periodic Table of Elements to help you answer these questions about the Period,
Group, Atomic Number, Element Name, Atomic Weight, etc. The Education 4 Kids site has a variety of other resources available online, including practice activities in Language, Social Studies, Math, etc.
This tutorial provides an introduction to solutions with examples and short quizzes; it was originally designed to help beginning medical technology students prepare solutions for the clinical laboratory.

Are you a closet chemist? Did you always want to mix stuff together to see what would happen? Perhaps you tried and were expelled from class or your chemistry set was locked up so you wouldn't blow up the house.... Now, you can experiment without worry!!
In biological systems, catalysts (which are required to make chemical reactions occur at rates useful to the cell) are called enzymes. This tutorial provides an overview of enzyme kinetics, --the study of rates-- including what affects these rates and how kinetic parameters are determined.
