So much fun

I enjoy Dr Carl a lot, great and clear and more so easy to understand. Makes medicine a lot more fun

Decent course but a bit boring at times
By Mathew C. on 16. April 2019 for CNS Infection—Clinical Neurology

This course delivered a lot of information and useful techniques with regards to the analysis of CSF to determine the cause of meningitis and the rundown of most of the clinical presentations of these disorders. I also enjoyed having the summary at the end of each video to give an overview to each condition and the main points to remember about each. The actual pathophysiological teaching leaves much to be desired as do the slides themselves. Dr Raj is good at delivering things in an interesting way when he has the right slides. These ones are just text most of the time which makes things much less interesting. It would also be nice to get more of an insight into the pathophysiological mechanisms of each disease both macro and micro
