This website provides several types of learning resources for heart auscultation.
We offer courses, reference guides and repetition training. Each of these resources is described below.
If you are a new visitor, we generally recommend starting with the Heart Sounds Lessons,
moving from normal cardiac sounds (mini) course through murmurs and then congenital abnormalities.
Course completion certificates are now available. Signed-in users must review all course lessons and then pass a graded quiz. Personalized achievement certificates can be printed and are automatically saved to the user's dashboard.
