Musculoskeletal System 2

Musculoskeletal System 2

This is the second webinar of a two-webinar series on the musculoskeletal system. This webinar will cover skin and bones. We will review the many layers of the skin and the skin’s function as our first line of defense against infection. We will also review bone and the anatomical structure within bone, its function in proliferating cells, and our basic skeletal structure.

On the MCAT

  • The test likes to connect MSK back to biochemistry and biology. For muscles connect back to myoglobin, biopathways and fuel supply. For bones, connect back to hormones like PTH and calcitonin. For skin, consider its role in our immune system.


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.”
