 Peter Ward, PhD

Peter Ward, PhD

Peter J. Ward, Ph.D. has been teaching embryology, anatomy, histology, and neuroscience since 2005. He attended Carnegie Mellon University and later earned a Ph.D. in medical anatomy education from Purdue University.

Awesome, this really comes in handy with the congenital heart diseases from Paediatrics, thanks Dr. Peter for being clear and giving us the key-points!

i liked the explaination with reason and the full picture put together

 
Clear and conscise
By Soren A. on 17. April 2021 for Coronary Circulation – Heart (Cor)

Clear presentation AND good selection of figures to show both a. and v. circulation. It is an added plus that all figures have the names in latin and not English. In other of the anatomy videos (i.e. upper limb, brain) the names in English, whereas keeping it in latin is more international than English and makes us all think that we are treating a scientific topic with a long history. Keeping it in latin makes i more clear and less ambiguous than English. Keep names of anatomical structures in latin in you Lecturio lectures.
