Excellent lecture
By Jalil Z. on 10. August 2020 for Seborrheic Dermatitis, Psoriasis and Impetigo in Children

Great idea to group these diseases together and clear clinical pictures!

 
Accentuation matters
By Ivan K. on 18. July 2020 for Seborrheic Dermatitis

Thanks for emphasizing thing like sparing nasolabial folds. I think it is extremely important to emphasize valuable high-yield thing for better remembering.

 
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

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