Great for learning the basics of cardiac physiology
By Gabriel F. on 21. October 2016 for Cardiac Physiology

Very good overview of cardiac physiology. Explained many concepts very clearly!

Very simplified yet very detailed.
By NIGEL U. on 07. October 2016 for Cardiac Physiology

This course has taught alot of things I didn't know, as well as highlited things that are obviously High Yield. The teachings are very simplistic and make things easy to understand. This would be a great product for any IMG such as myself.

More elaborate
By Yokeh M. on 02. September 2016 for Cardiac Physiology

As in most courses in physiology, I think many concepts in this course require more elaborate explanation; probably with simple animations/illustrations that make learning and retention easier.
