Robbins and Cotran Pathology Flash Cards – these brilliantly illustrated flash cards present gross, photomicrographic, and radiologic images that allow you to test yourself on key pathologic information
Robbins and Cotran Pathology Flash Cards is designed to reinforce the learning that begins with the study of other works in the Robbins family of textbooks, as well as in other clinical and basic science disciplines. The learning styles of our user base of students are continually evolving, and we now incorporate a variety of resources to support them. The Robbins list of titles continues to expand to support such a diversity of learning modalities. These flash cards are designed to stimulate recall and reinforce concepts in pathophysiology. Use the cards to consolidate your learning and inspire further study.

- Each card has two sides. Each side includes a vignette with text, image, and questions. Flip the card for the answers to questions on the opposite side. Both card sides illustrate the same or related disease process. This style effectively doubles your learning opportunities.
- No, of course not. By design these flash cards only hit the highlights and scratch the surface. Use them to refresh concepts, but be curious and not content to let your knowledge end there. There’s so much out there to learn. Repeat after us: I will enthusiastically seek knowledge in dedicating myself to the care of others at the highest level.
- Thank the authors of Robbins and Cotran Pathologic Basis of Disease and Basic Pathology, the texts that serve as the primary source authority of information for the flash cards. Also, thank the people at Elsevier, Inc., including William Schmitt, executive content strategist, who had the inspiration for this project and guided it to completion. Finally, thank Amy Meros, content development specialist, who provided invaluable service (and infinite patience) to move the project from concept to reality.
