By omri p. on 21. May 2017 for Introduction to Cardiac Diseases

Dr Alpert, a well respected figure in cardiogy, narrates this course in an enjoyable, highly professional way. The 30 to 40 minutes sessions are, to my opinion, much more academic then some of the 2-3 min based lectures. I do want to point out that only by chance i have found the course as it lacks paradoxically from the clinical curriculum. That said, i would love to hear more of his talks and know more of this critical discipline. Kind regards. Omri
