ScholarRx — Rx Bricks


In response to a request for assistance from a partner medical school impacted by COVID-19, ScholarRx has agreed to make its Rx Bricks program available to medical schools and physician assistant programs for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year. This comprehensive, online resource can assist schools implementing contingency plans necessitated by the COVID-19 outbreak. Rx Bricks is an innovative digital learning system designed to help students easily learn the foundations of medicine. Rx Bricks offers a repository of curricular materials and learning frameworks that can be rapidly deployed and customized to suit your unique curriculum needs and goals. Rx Bricks uses short, high-yield, interactive lessons called “bricks.” Content is broken down into the smallest cohesive learning units, or “bricks”, and organized around basic science topics (e.g., pressure-volume loops) or clinical concepts (e.g., ischemic heart disease). Each brick uses clear language to explain and contextualize key topics—many in less than 20 minutes—while offering built-in review tools to test understanding of the content right away.
