Good course on cardiology
By Glen C. on 15. June 2019 for Introduction to Cardiac Diseases

Dr. Alpert is a very good presenter, but a little rushed and stiff, clearly not a medium he is comfortable with. Again, look for higher production value, I can get talking head slide shows from my school. Think 2D or 3D animation. This is great for the heart because it moves it does things. I have Netter, use it all the time. Show me tha SA-AV conduction path in 2D rotations, static and while the heart is beating. Make the POV an RBC and ride the currents through the heart, the lungs. Also, great for the congenital malformations. Show me a tet heart in motion, with flow lines , then show me that on U/S or ECG. And show me a patient with the condition. Step 2 isn't about the science factoids, it is about the clinical art, that means patients.
