shallow and uninformative - reading the textbook will be more efficient
By Sören H. on 31. March 2019 for Seborrheic Dermatitis

no pathophysiology, epidemiology and risks explained explanations are shallow, very hastily spoken and with very little extra info. Not happy with this course

By Rahmah B. on 24. September 2018 for Atopic Dermatitis

I think he is one of the top lectures that have a particularly unique way in gaining attention. Kudos

Seborrheic dermatitis
By Lyndon O. on 29. August 2018 for Seborrheic Dermatitis

Belabors the points quite succinctly! The approach is just the best for clinical dermatology!

Needs discussion about investigations
