General knowledge
By Joao G. on 01. October 2016 for Cardiovascular Pathology

The issue is on me Sometimes Dr Raj is to quick... for me, because I don't have his the knowledge. However he makes me to research all the topics, to understand the class video. In other hand he makes progress as a Bioscientist

Amazing lecture video
By Kevin C. on 28. September 2016 for Cardiovascular Pathology

Just incredible how much this helps me understand. My professor was going over portions of this section in class and I really wasn't understanding but after watching these videos I can say that now I am comfortable in the subject

could cover topics in more detail
By Jacob R. on 03. September 2016 for Introduction to Cardiac Diseases

Some topics like ECG could be covered in much more depth. Not really at medical school exam depth
