What’s New

450 New Lessons in Basic Sciences

We all need a refresher sometimes. That’s why we added our new Basic Sciences courses to the PA curriculum! With courses in Anatomy, Physiology, Pathophysiology, and Biochemistry, you can quickly brush up on your basic science skills before nailing your exams! No more digging through all your old lectures and textbooks—Sketchy 2.0 has everything you need to power through preclinical didactics and master rotations and exams. 

Explore our Clinical courses in Microbiology, Pharmacology, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Nutrition, Ob/Gyn, Pediatrics, and Biostatistics & Epidemiology. 

The First PA Quizzes Ever! 

Explore over a thousand new quiz questions, so you can check your retention and practice your test-taking skills. Head over to our Pathophysiology and Biochemistry courses to give them a try!

New Micro Lessons

We updated our Microbiology course to be much more comprehensive, so you can learn about all those little critters and how they contribute to infectious disease. 

New Names

“Systems” is now “Internal Medicine”—because after all, that’s where all your systems are! 

Basic Sciences 


New Topics: Whether you’re studying blood vessels, organs, bones, or the nervous system—we’ve got you! 

Check out our lesson on Cranial Nerve 8 in the new Anatomy course. But first, get balanced and listen closely (that’s a hint about CN 8)! Explore the full course for a complete review of all 12 cranial nerves. Pro Tip: Check out these lessons before and after your cadaveric dissection to make Anatomy unforgettable!


New Topics: From Cellular Physiology to Cardiovascular Physiology, remembering the intra and extracellular movement of ions has never been easier!

With Sketchy PA, you’ll never be nervous about mastering the nervous system! Head over to our “Fights & Flights” pub to get a refresh(ment) on the Sympathetic Nervous System!


New Topics: Learn about a broad range of systems and diseases, and remember pathologic injuries and disease processes from head to toe! 

Can’t keep the hypothalamus and pituitary pathways straight? No problem! Just head over to our new Path course, put on your boxing gloves, and “punch” up your pituitary pathway knowledge with our lesson on Hypothalamic & Pituitary Dysfunction.


New Topics: When it comes to metabolic processes, genetics, biology and vitamin/mineral pathways, Sketchy Biochem is where it’s at!

Explore our Biochemistry course to brush up on Genetics by learning about Fabry Disease. And while you’re in the Biochem neighborhood, why not refresh your memory on Alcohol Metabolism before you head over to your lecture on liver disease.

No matter what you need to review, Sketchy PA has you covered! We hope these updates help you crush your exams, impress your preceptors, and most importantly—give your patients the best possible medical care. 

Until next time,

Stay Sketchy!
