Gut tutorials

BMJ Learning produces gastroenterology interactive case histories (ICHs) in association with Gut. These tutorials are case based and designed to simulate bedside teaching. They are aimed at both trainees and consultant gastroenterologists who want to refresh their knowledge. The level of difficulty has been set at senior Specialist Registrar, although any clinician should find them valuable revision.

The tutorials are hosted on BMJ Learning - the best available learning website for medical professionals from the BMJ Group. Gut subscribers must initially access the MCQs via to be able to use them [read more]

Use these interactive modules to learn as you are guided through a real life consultation, answering multiple choice questions as you proceed. Where appropriate, more detailed information and explanation of incorrect answers is provided for you. All answers can all be found within the case and there is a full reference section. Each tutorial should take about 1 hour; you may stop and resume at any time. To complete the tutorial you must pass the post-test with a passmark of 70%.
