By Sari D. on 07. August 2021 for Anomalous Coronary Arteries – Congenital Heart Disease

For me this lecture was very intelligible and interesting to watch, even tough it is not one of by favourite subject. I think the lecturer is charismatic and showed the important points in this subject - not too much detailed but not too superficial as well. I like his other lectures too. Thanks!

 
Sweet and clear explanation!

Super enjoyable and useful!
By Esmeralda G. on 08. July 2021 for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS)

Awesome lecture as always! I've been more into my Paediatrics course right now thanks to Dr. Brian, I can understand really fast and easily the concepts and then review more in depth material like books and articles. I love the notes new feature, the slides in PDF and the articles posted here! I really enjoy going through these topics!
