Over here at Team Hippo we love Medicine, and we love education. We’ve had our noses to the grindstone at EM:RAP and Essentials of EM with cutting-edge medical education for over 10 years. We also love technology and the Web. And quite frankly, we love laughing until our stomachs hurt… So, we put it all together to make Hippo PA.
Hippo (like Hippocrates, not like the large semi-aquatic mammal that flips your canoe) was created as a response to the typical, old-school, boring, and ineffective medical education and board-review that we’ve all had to endure for so many decades. You know the flavor: pay a truckload of money to enroll in a course, pay more for travel, food, and hotel and then wake up early to cram yourself into a little conference room to watch endless hours of boring slides by mediocre presenters. We’ve all done it. Nowadays you can even buy that same course recorded onto 40 CD’s or watch a poor recording online. What fun…
Hippo PA is the opposite. We’re having fun and so will you. We take the best and most entertaining educators around, put them into a relaxed environment and let them shine and laugh. Then we package it all into an amazing website, allow you to eat up the content in any way you like, and reinforce your learning in many learning-theory-based ways. You get the material in visual, audio, written, and question form. You even get to earn points as you claw your way to mastery from Amoeba level all the way up to Einstein.
Hippo’s content is constantly upgraded. Lower rated lectures and educators are changed out on the fly based on user feedback. New advances in diagnosis and treatment are updated before you can say Hippocrates! And, any changes to the test or test topics are addressed right away. No waiting for a new “version” or edition. Go away for a while and you’ll come back to a ton of new content!
So, if you love medicine, the Web, learning, and laughing then search no further – Hippo PA is for you!
