Great! The lecture is very straight forward and easy to understand.

Good lectures a lot of emphasis on preconceptions and illinformed epidemiologic data
By Renan A. on 01. December 2020 for Cardiac Diseases

Dr. Alpert is no doubt a great professor and explain things in a very academic way. However, I do not appreciate the misconceptions he has about medical practice abroad. He makes the sophomoric mistake of comparing the absent health system in the US to western Europe efficient and fair health system. On the other hand he implies with old data that Latin American systems are not good.
