Easy to understand and stay engaged, Dr. Bord adds real patients experiences keeping the lectures interesting.

Concise and clear
By Neuer N. on 28. April 2020 for Mesenteric Ischemia

Very clear and to the point with the pertinent information.

So useful
By Rodrigo C. on 27. October 2019 for Abdominal Pain: Signs & Symptoms

Very nicely detailled information about abdominal pain semiology and I like her voice.

Good as an introduction
By Zun T. on 15. September 2019 for Abdominal and Genitourinary Emergencies

I liked how there was broad coverage of the topics, however, the content was a bit superficial. More depth into the pathophysiology would improve the quality of the videos. I would recommend these videos as an introduction to a topic, however, I don't think they are comprehensive enough for medical students.
