Corneal Reflex Practice Question with Video Explanation from BoardVitals & MedCram

corneal reflex

In case you missed it, we recently started a partnership with MedCram to bring you video explanations of board-style review questions. This video discusses a corneal reflex USMLE practice question. Each BoardVitals question featured on MedCram is a question we’ve noticed with a trend of users all having the same misunderstanding on the same question. We extract this data using our “Problem with this question” feature, which allows BoardVitals users to comment on a question and then our doctors on staff will respond to the comment.

In this video, MedCram Co-Founder, Dr. Roger Seheult, a quadruple board-certified physician, who comes with 20 years of experience teaching both the MCAT and the USMLE, deconstructs a commonly difficult question explaining corneal reflex from the BoardVitals USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1 Board Practice Question Banks. Dr. Seheult knows current and aspiring healthcare professionals are busy, so his review courses minimize unnecessary fluff by only including information that will be on the test or information you need to know to be a successful medical professional.

In this video, Dr. Seheult illustrates the corneal reflex of the eye and discusses the direct and consensual reflex as well as a failproof system for identifying the location of a lesion in the corneal reflux pathway. Check out the video and let us know if you found it helpful in our comments section. Feel free to ask any follow-up questions there!

Did you miss our last video? Last week, MedCram launched our first collaborative video on elbow ossification which was another question from the BoardVitals USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1 Board Practice Question Banks.
