Lymphatic System

Lymphatic System

With this webinar, our MCAT webinars have officially covered all the biological systems on the test! The lymphatic system may seem low yield but is heavily tethered to other systems like the circulatory and the immune.  The spleen and our lymph nodes are part of this system.  The circulatory system drains into the lymphatic.  Also remember fat digestion?  Yes, that requires the lymphatic system, too, via the lacteals. So join us for this last hurrah for systems and see how this one little system connects to the major ones.

  • The lymphatic system is low yield but is usually completely recall. This means that you don’t want to mix up spleen and thymus, or thoracic duct with right lymphatic duct. Use this system as a way to review others, but also double down on the memorization that is straightforward.


I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂

I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!

Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!

The wealth of information and sample questions are great.

“These 30 minute FREE, live videos conducted each Friday helped me get through the pandemic. Weike is an exceptional tutor, and being able to ask questions after she’s done was magnificent. These webinars have even helped me in class subjects such as Biochemistry.  I’m looking forward to starting one-on-one tutoring with Cambridge Coaching, and I’m already feeling confident about taking the MCAT when the time comes.”
