Histology Lite - SecondLook
By The University of Michigan
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The SecondLook™ Histology Lite application is a study aid that provides a series of histology slides for users to self-test their level of knowledge and ability to recognize histological structures. Bundles of sets with related content can be purchased as separate apps or, alternatively, as one comprehensive app covering all major human tissues and organs.
The perfect histology review app
The entire SecondLook app series takes an efficient and effective approach towards topic study and review. Topics are comprehensive enough to provide confidence that the major teaching points are being touched upon, but concise enough to allow for rapid review. The Question-Answer format truly helps enhance learning. The Q&A is well-written and thoughtful, and follow a logical progression with each Question building upon the last as the slides walk the user through a given topic. Working through the App feels similar to reading Dubin’s “Rapid Interpretation of EKGs” in that the Q&A format guides the user through the slides and is much more approachable than reading dense, didactic paragraphs. Images are beautiful and high resolution, and are well annotated to emphasize teaching points. The color-coded image annotations allow for ample information to be packed into every slide without feeling overwhelming.
Filling a gap in higher med ed
Many students are still far too often left to fend for themselves in medical curriculum with subpar resources. This is especially visible in courses where students have to interpret novel data ambiguous to novice learners, usually in the form of anatomical structures, radiological images, etc.
This app bridges that gap for histology. It is unique in that it gives us immediate feedback, directly on the histological image itself. We don't have to read a paragraph that's referenced at a remote location and wonder if we're interpreting someone's prose correctly in the image. Short of an actual living breathing instructor next to you, this is the next best thing.
App is simple to use, and is one of these most high yield resources that was not only essential in my first learning as an M1, but high yield review for Step 1, basic science research, and upper level pathology rotations.
Must Have for Histology
This is a must have resource for learning and understanding Histology. I ended up getting the full version and have no regrets. This study aid led to my success in my histology course and I know it will do the same for anyone else. It's very easy to use and a great way to test your knowledge and understanding of the subject matter. I would use this to study during bus rides, in between classes, and even before bed. The high quality images of histological slides show more than enough detail needed to identify and characterize the relevant histology. You also get questions that make you think critically about the function and physiology of the histological area that you are studying. I would not go through histology without this app. 10/10, would recommend!
