Superb ! it orientate me with the big picture and then dwells into the vital tricks and trade of the specialty !!! greatly recommended for medical students as a foundation course and interns as re enforcement of what you have learned !!! a very practical lecture and truly worthwhile to invest in!

Poor level of detail in lectures
By Saif K. on 05. October 2017 for Pathophysiology of Pain

Overall there is a lack of content specific terminology, No mention of gate control theory, different ways in classifying pain (traumatic, central, neurotic, infections, metabolic, idiopathic), no mention of the fibres involved, role of patient questionnaires to evaluate pain. I would suggest referring to a textbook for this topic.
