Nice material to pre-read for school lectures
By William J. on 06. December 2018 for Renal Physiology

Simple to follow, made staying with professors during lecture much easier!

 
overall it is was okay.
By Samantha R. on 29. November 2018 for Urothelium and Urethra

I chose this liking because it is like he is reading straight off of a board in front of him and sometimes it takes him too long to get to the point of the subject possibly because he is having problems reading the material in front of him.

 
Lack of pointers.
By Luís F. on 03. November 2018 for Nephron

The sir Geoffrey explains very well but i find it difficult to follow the explination on the histalogic image due to the lack of pointing out the structures i am not sure if i am looking at the right thing and i am always at doubt. Pls use pointers and thx for the attention.

 
Great lecture! but there is small mistake in the quiz at the end.
By katelin S. on 03. November 2018 for Kidneys: Segments and Blood Supply – Kidneys and Suprarenal Glands

The lecture is great, really informative, loved it. The quiz has one of the questions as, what structure is NOT located within the sinus and the answer is given as ureter when the answer should be the calyx. As the ureter passes through the hilum and out the sinus, but the calyx does not exit the kidney.
