Fascinating Medicine is a two-part curriculum. The first is Fascinating Anatomy & Physiology, which helps you understand how the human body works, and the second is Fascinating Logic of Medicine, which explains the symptoms and signs that emerge when the body stops working properly, and then sort through those symptoms and signs to arrive at possible causes for them.

The course lessons are laid out in a simple, easy to use table format with buttons below each picture for access to the lessons, text scripts, and tests that correlate with each lesson. Click the buttons in the sample lesson about “Neurologic System” to start.

I have looked at your teaching material, and it seems perfect for deepening our understanding and appreciation of science. I wish I’d been given these sorts of clear explanations at school. Thank you so much for making your expertise available; it’s like finding treasure!”

I am very impressed with the fast customer support and feedback. I sent them questions on the courses and received an immediate response that was not only helpful but also economical. They have a solid product.”

“My son is studying Chemistry this year with Fascinating Education. Since he has some processing disorders that affect his reading comprehension, the format of audio lecture coupled with visuals is perfect for him. He likes this class, and is retaining the information that he learns. This is my 7th time of teaching chemistry and I find the information to be concise, clear, and complete. I will use Fascinating Education again next year for physics, and have shared/will share this information with my friends!”
