Hypertension
By Barbara K. on 21. September 2017 for Complications of Hypertension – Hypertension

The lecture in a very clear way explains the crucial mechanisms of Hypertension and helps to understand and remember forever these complex mechanisms

 
Maybe good for US students, impossible for euro students.
By Bjarni J. on 12. September 2017 for Cardiovascular Pathology

This course is near impossible to take for a European, as our curriculum is structured differently than in the US. Dr. Raj keeps referring to diseases that may have been covered in another video, and sometimes he just refers to them by acronym, not even a full name, so redundant are they. But for a European who hasn't had that part yet, using them as an example to explain a concept means we don't understand the concept at all.

 
Thanks Dr Raj and keep on making the connections to understand the way of thinking in big frames
By Mohammed s. on 08. September 2017 for Pericardial Effusion and Cardiac Tamponade: Definition

Actually at the beginning,it was very hard for me to follow Dr. Raj and it was very distracting, but now I find pathology lectures as the highest yield ones.I should stay alert during the lecture otherwise I'd listen to it again and again to digest the amazing connections among various pathologies.

 
ECGs
By zeen v. on 08. September 2017 for Sinus, Atrial and Ventricular Rhythm – Cardiac Dysrhythmia

ECGs are still ambiguous. there should atleast be a pointer on the screen to indicate what and where he is talking about. I am lost in his coordinates. Its like teaching map skills without a map legend
