Why: In order to train the future generation of physicians, medical information must be accurate, up-to-date, and readily available. By having greater accessibility to medical information, medical students anywhere in the world can practice high-quality medical care to meet the needs of the community, and ultimately contribute to a better health system for all.
What: Learning in 10 (LIT) Reviews is a collection of 10-minute, user-friendly video lectures covering topics in the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 2CK examination. LIT Reviews can be used by medical students to supplement their lecture materials. LIT Reviews have been created by world-class clinical faculty and each video undergoes a peer-review process to ensure accuracy of information.
How: Our Voice Annotated Presentations (VAP) format allows LIT Reviews to stay current as medical care changes. In addition, the VAP format allows viewers to directly interact with the video lectures through quick navigation and audio speed control. The LIT Reviews site is free of charge and available on the web and mobile devices on a variety of platforms (iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows and Kindle).
Who: In 2012, Dr. Robert Kamei, Dr. Tan Thiam Chye, Dr. Shiva Sarraf and Dr. Linton Yee initiated the development of a digital library of clinical training materials to supplement lectures given by faculty. Faculty, residents, and student volunteers created over 350 LIT reviews with the support of Duke University School of Medicine, Duke-NUS Medical School and SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre. In 2015, Sandra Boesch, Ph.D., and Ms. Eneka Lamb created the online platform for the LIT Reviews. Ongoing technical support is provided by Eugene Seah, Vani Kalai, John Lofton, Mike Eudy, Ha Tran and Elysia Su.
