We want more ??
By Asia I. on 14. January 2020 for Bacteria

It could be improved with more bacteria (ex: for Neisseria there's only Meningitidis and not Gonorrheae, that's is treating in the Sexual Transmitted Infections just as a clinical approach)

 
Excellent!

High professional lecture. Quite detailed and clear explained.
By Sergey S. on 25. December 2019 for Bacteria

The video lectures helped me organize the information I already knew and filled the gaps in between. I appreciated how Dr. Wilson was concise and straight to the point with his lectures.

 
More viasuals on lab diagnosis please.

Really great videos. Extremely helpful, though on our curriculum we are required to know basic lab diagnosis of the common bacteria and identify their culture in lab practical exams it would have been helpful if that area had a section as well.
