How to Use ERG Histology Web Pages
In these web-pages you will find extensively hyper-linked notes and images summarizing the basics of tissue organization in the gastrointestinal, reproductive, and endocrine systems.
These notes are NOT intended as a textbook substitute. If you use this on-line study aid, please consult standard histology textbooks and atlases for additional significant detail.
Content in these web-pages should be similar to that provided in the scheduled Resource Sessions and Laboratories (and should include most of those things you shall be tested on). Refer to your textbooks and atlases for richer, more detailed information.
Hyperlinks provide quick navigation to definitions or examples.
- At the top of each page is a menu bar linking to the index pages.
- Index pages serve as hubs, with links to many specific topics. The central hub is the ERG Index page, which links to index pages for the Endocrine, Reproductive, and Gastrointestinal systems. Each index page also lists simple learning objectives.
- The Study Guide pages (GI, Endocrine, Male, Female) provide narrative introductions and also serve as hubs.
- On each study-guide page, keywords link to definitions, explanations, or examples.
- You should be able to find the same basic information from several different directions.
- Most small images in the study guides link to larger, labelled images with additional notes.
- To browse images, see the GI image index and the Endo-Repro image index.
- Since hyperlinks are an essential feature, these web pages are intended only for on-line use. However, if you must have print copies of these webpages, click here.
Emphasis throughout is on normal histology. Illustrative examples of pathologic histology are presented occasionally, but you are not expected to learn particular details of pathology at this time.
Some pathological material may be presented in evaluation, and this may differ from that presented in cases. However, you shall not be expected to identify any specific pathologies. Rather, with any pathologic specimen you shall be expected simply to recognize normal tissue structures and to distinguish significant departures from normal.
You are invited to e-mail requests and suggestions directly to Prof. King.
This takes just a few seconds: From any page, click on the e-mail link at bottom, type a quick message (e.g., "I don't understand so-and-so", or "How about more info on [topic]", or "Please add a link from [page] to [topic]" or "There's an error on [page]"). I should respond during the next workday (if not sooner).
