Well organized information
By Francesco G. on 22. April 2017 for Cardiac Physiology

Information are organized very well: all concepts that I have studied on my physiology book in some weeks, are here summarized in short lectures that took me an afternoon to go through it. I would strongly recommend it.

Great Lectures
By Jon W. on 08. April 2017 for Cardiac Physiology

Fantastic lectures and course. I am a critical care nurse and like to review these lectures to refresh my knowledge on topics. These lectures are perfect for remembering heart physiology and gaining a better understanding of some of the more difficult concepts.

Great Lectures for USMLE Step 1
By Shelley D. on 12. February 2017 for Cardiac Physiology

Lectures are clear and concise and hit high yield topics for USMLE Step 1.

By Vana P. on 23. January 2017 for Para- and Sympathetic Control of the Heart Rate – Heart Rate and Electricity

Love the fact that the topic is split into bitesize clips and the focus is on understanding first then learning second.
