Coursera is an education company that partners with the top universities and organizations in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free. Their technology enables our partners to teach millions of students rather than hundreds.

“We envision a future where everyone has access to a world-class education that has so far been available to a select few. We aim to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in."

They offer courses from their website and have many science and medical classes offered. At the end, you get a Statement of Completion for your resume or CV. You can even earn "official" statements from the university sponsoring the course, like Princeton, Yale, Duke, or John Hopkins, though for a price.

The Clinical Terminology for International and U.S. Students course just opened, one of many such classes. https://class.coursera.org/clinicalterminology-001/class/index
(particularly useful for students looking to shadow or volunteer!!!)

The first in a collection of free educational tutorials to help students prepare for the revised Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®) that will be administered in 2015 are now available.
The tutorials (including videos and questions) were developed by winners of a competition sponsored by the AAMC, Khan Academy and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Lessons will be available through Khan’s online learning library, as well as the Pre-health Collection of the AAMC’s MedEdPORTAL® iCollaborative. Currently the growing collection has more than 24 tutorials (each tutorial includes 4-8 videos and questions) to help undergraduate and pre-med students prepare for health care professions. The content creators and reviewers will expand the collection throughout the year, which is expected to include approximately 500 videos and an estimated 1,000 questions by the summer of 2014.
