The Nucleus animations helped me learn more than a hundred courses could!
— Sophie Shriki Registered Nurse
We use the NMAL for additional student education. We find that the students learn more in a shorter time. A very good side-benefit is that they also tend to recall material better using the animations, along with a follow-up quiz after they view it.
— Andrew Stenberg Adjunct Instructor of Physiology and Health Maharishi International University
Learning medical terminology can be boring. Watching NMAL videos engages our students and encourage them to learn more.
— David McCoy-Galcia Director of Courses Medical Interpreting Training School
The visualization/animation of so many important biological processes is crucial to their understanding of concepts. The NMAL media library is a great resource.
— Todd Hardie Science Teacher Menlo School
(The NMAL) shows them things they don’t see in publisher-provided textbooks.

Nucleus Medical Media is the Pixar of medicine.
— John Jain, MD Chief Fertility Specialist Santa Monica Fertility
I believe the animations are much easier for patients to understand than still images printed on fliers, or even the pre-constructed printouts from an EMR we are required to give out as part of meaningful use criteria.
— Jeff Taylor, MD Cardiologist Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital
Most simply, Nucleus Medical Media animation is the best in the business. How do I know? I've looked at every conceivable site, about a dozen times. NMM is without parallel or peer. Period.
— George McClane, MD Emergency Department Physician Sharp Grossmont Hospital
The animations reduce the amount of time I need to spend going over the material, but they also leave the patient with the assurance that the visit was well coordinated and meaningful. It’s not just a time-saver, it’s a brain-saver because I don’t have to explain it.
— George Crawford, MD General & Thoracic Surgeon The Crawford Clinic
The [Nucleus] illustrations and videos are an integral part of the educational process for our patients. Not only is the content accurate and of an incredibly high quality, but the videos are more detailed than I am able to provide in a conversational setting without the benefit of AV aids.
— Rick Hammesfahr, MD Orthopedic Surgeon Center for Orthopedic and Sports Medicine
The animations [are] great educative tools for moms to view during breastfeeding or childbirth education classes, during initial postpartum stay in hospital or birth center, and as a quick review/reference once home.
— Pamela Murphy, PhD, MS, APRN-BC, CNM System Administrative Officer MUSC Hollings Cancer Center
The animations are truly excellent.
— David B. Adams, PhD, FAACP, FAPM Psychologist Atlanta Medical Psychology
Speaking as a reproductive endocrinologist/PCOS expert, the [Polycystic Ovary Syndrome animation] is gorgeous.
— James Wheeler, MD, MPH, JD Reproductive Endocrinologist Center for Women’s Healthcare
I love the clear and specific animation. It is definitely a helpful tool to educate my patients.
— Amitha Mundenchira, MD Family Practitioner Ontario Ministry of Health
I think that [the animation library] is an excellent tool. From a factual perspective, very comprehensive and accurate.
— Randal F. Wojciehoski, DPM, DO Internist Ascension St. Michaels Hospital
The animations are great. I think it would be a great benefit [for] a nurse to show patient John Smith the liver biopsy video …before he leaves the office.
— Gil Hoang, MD Radiologist Bayhealth Hospital
For the patient, a picture will explain anatomy better than words alone.
— James Wang, MD General Surgeon Providence Medical Group
The animations are excellent. The picture they convey is spot on. I think they are better than most I've seen.
— Phillip Beron, MD Oncologist Cancer Treatment Centers of America
As a home health and hospice nurse for over 35+years I find you high quality animations and illustrations help health care professionals in the daily task of educating patients and family/caregivers.
— Kathy Quan, RN BSN PHN QAPI Analyst Assisted Home Hospice
I am of the opinion that the animations at Nucleus are second to none. I routinely use images and videos to explain neurological concepts to my patients.
— James Armstrong, MD Neurologist Armstrong Neurology
Our modern patients have become even more visually clued, so the [Nucleus] animation allows them to understand and then formulate any additional questions.
— Michael Fenster, MD Editor in Chief Journal of Integrated Healthcare
