This activity is designated for 50 AAPA Category 1 CME credits for physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Approval is valid from 8/20/2021 to 8/20/2022 . PAs and NPs should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation. AAPA reference number: CME-203204.

The entire foundation behind every great clinician is grounded in anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. 

Typically, as a clinician, a patient will come in to see you when they are sick. This means something isn't functioning as it should.

But, in order to figure out what's wrong, you must first learn what it looks like when things go right.

In other words, to truly understand the abnormal, you must first be comfortable with the normal. 

As soon as you understand how the body works in perfect harmony, you can then shift your focus to the pathophysiology. 

This is where you will learn what can go wrong within that particular organ system.

We are teaching with the clinician in mind...

Many students are reluctant to take a course to learn anatomy, physiology, and/or pathophysiology, because they feel it won't be relevant once they start their medical careers.

But, we are teaching these concepts with the clinician in mind.

All the concepts we'll be teaching are interwoven to bring clarity to many concepts your professors may have glossed over. 

Often times, a class is restricted by time which makes it difficult to get through everything.

We'll not only have you mastering the sciences, but in a way that's relevant to clinical practice.

In order to further master clinical concepts, we'll also incorporate: Focal Problems 

This is where we take a disease (anemia for example) and teach the relevant anatomy, normal physiology, and pathophysiology; we'll even touch on the relevant pharmacology so that you get a complete picture of the entire disease process.

Our goal is to give you the foundation you need so that you can better help your future patients.

Don't just memorize how things happen; understand the why behind it all...

Many times, professors lecture as if you're already an expert.

They breeze through important concepts and forget to connect the dots for you. It's not on purpose, but they simply think you should already know these things.

In reality, they have forgotten what it's like to be a novice. Because of this, most students leave lecture more confused than when they started.

We understand this, which is why we approach your medical education from a completely different angle. 

We'd love for you to join us as we break down complex and daunting topics; we will build the foundation that will help you excel as a clinician.

Join Us...

We'll be approaching this training much differently than what you're used to.

You will have the opportunity to join us weekly, to learn from Dr. Finney as she simplifies incredibly complicated concepts. 

This will allow you to ask questions and leave with clarity.

Everything will be recorded, edited, and placed into your dashboard, so that you can review as often as you want, whenever you have time. 

We aren't just looking to create a course.

We are looking to create the most comprehensive anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology review. 

This will be your go to resource from the start of your medical career and beyond.

So, you can expect brand new material every single week for the next 12 months.

We already have 130 hours of material covering learning strategies, cardiology, pulmonology, hematology, renal, GI and nutrition, ready to go in your dashboard.

We'll also be covering endocrine, musculoskeletal system, neurology and special senses, psychiatry, dermatology, & reproductive and heredity.

This comes out to 468 hours

Even after we finish our trainings, you will continue to have access to all the material for life.

So, this means there is absolutely no rush to get through it all.

We have designed this to be your go to resource for the rest of your career.

Start your training before you begin your program, review important concepts during your didactic and clinical years, and keep things fresh long into practice.

This training is yours for life. 

Dr. Judy Finney

Your instructor for the program is Judy Finney M.D., who graduated from the Michigan State University School of Medicine in the top 5% of her class. 

She did her residency in internal medicine with Michigan State University Clinical Center and did a fellowship in cardiovascular disease at Ingham Regional Medical Center.

She also taught at Midwestern University School of Medicine. 

From 2001 - 2008 she was a clinical professor taking on one student at a time during their 3rd year clinical cardiology rotation to really help them excel.

During that time, she also taught EKGs, Heart Sounds, and Murmurs to everyone in their cardiology rotation. 

From 2008-2011 Dr. Finney was assistant professor for the school of Medicine. During this time she re-wrote all objectives for the internal medicine rotation and created a database of questions they could use for testing during the internal medicine rotation. 

Lastly, she ran case-based small group sessions, for the 3rd and 4th year students, taught a 10 week EKG elective course, and did 1:1 tutoring to help low performing students pass.

In other words, she knows how take a student from novice to master.

  • And much more...

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who is this course for?

This is for the student or clinician looking to build a strong foundation in medicine.

We'll take you from the basics (pre-med/pre-pa/nursing) and then build upon your knowledge to the level of what's expected as a practicing clinician (PA, NP, physician).

The difference between our program is that we are teaching everything with the clinician in mind and so we'll also be tying in the relevant pharmacology that goes along with each disease process.

2. How do I get my questions answered?

You'll have direct access to Dr. Finney 7 days a week in our private APP community. 

Here you can post your questions, learn from other members' questions, and all of your answers will come from Dr. Finney herself.

Medicine can often feel like you're all on your own. By joining APP and becoming part of our community, that's no longer the case. 

You're part of a movement in medicine where we support one another in achieving our goals.

As we said, you'll have the option to go in the community and ask questions. But, this is by no means a requirement. 

3. How is the program structured?

We've decided to take on a different approach. Instead of separating the "classes" out, we'll be integrating anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology together.

In our opinion, this will allow you to get the full picture much more clearly.

The goal here is to go deep and leave no stone unturned. 

Because of this, every week, we'll be adding brand new trainings for the next 12 months.

So, this comes out to about 468 hours of material.

Before you get overwhelmed, there's no need to keep up with the lectures every week.

Our goal here is to build out a comprehensive library, so that you can go in and dive deep into whatever topic you're struggling with. 

It will be organized in your dashboard, so that you can hop in and learn with ease.

This is why we give you lifetime access, so that you can use this for the remainder of your medical career.

You'll be getting video trainings, audio files, notes, slides, and the community.

4. I'm pretty busy, I don't think I'll have time

Believe us, we know exactly how busy you are. 

This is why everything will be organized and easily searchable, so that you can look up the topics and/or disease process in mind, and dive into that specific section. 

There's no deadline to finish, as your access doesn't expire.

5. How long will I have access to the material?

You have access to everything for life! 

There's no need to rush through the material. Review on your time, as often as you'd like.

Access to the community is lifetime too. That's right, you'll get support from a credible, experienced clinician for the rest of your career. 

This will allow you to get access to all the trainings (edited for a smooth learning experience), and you will also get any and all updates made to the course for free.
