EBM can't be presented in a better way.
By Paul J. on 13. April 2019 for Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS): ECG & Risk Patients

The professor is outstanding in her way of expressing the facts in a palatable way and the EBM she gives is fantastic.

Review of lecturio courses.
By Masood A. on 05. April 2019 for Cardiovascular Emergencies and Shock

Core concepts explained very clearly. Easy to grasp. I like the easy way difficult topics are explained. Explanations should be included in answers to questions at the end of each lecture. I would recommend this course to all who want to crack USMLE.

For any Medical Students who will be taking ACLS or want a better understanding of Cardio Pharma. 10/10
By joshua W. on 07. January 2019 for Cardiovascular Emergencies and Shock

Phenomenal instruction. As a medical student, I understood the theory behind ECG and pharmacology, but didn't quite understand the why or when. I watched this course prior to taking ACLS, and her explanations having given me more confidence in not only cardiovascular emergency, but also understanding the application of these events. For any medical student I would highly recommend taking the time to watch these videos after you cover cardiology pharmacology in your studies. This course will very clearly give you the understanding the "why" of cardiac pharmacology. As far as medical students go, we tend to look for videos that are very to the point and explain well without wasting time. This lecture series checks all the boxes. Very well done, and very highly recommended.
