Insufficient explanation of information.
By Bilal A. on 25. September 2023 for Diagnosis of Hepatitis B Virus Infection (HBV) and Interpretation of HBV Serology

I had to google most of the terms. Interpreted the chart on my own. The information was all there but it was not explained properly.

Wish he was my med school instructor!

I was super confused about PBC and PSC but Dr. Raj made it clear! love his style of teaching

Good description of disease but doesn't cover treatment.
By Payal G. on 29. January 2023 for Liver Diseases: Basic Principles with Carlo Raj

Although the course gives you a good desccription of the liver anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, it doesn't touch on treatment and reasons for commencing a particular treatment.

As always, Dr. Raj is an outstanding teacher. I just love the way he drills concepts into my brain by connecting all the subjects together from biochemistry to pharmacology. You leave a topic with a thoroughly cohesive understanding of the subject. Teaching is a talent and Dr. Raj has it.
