Dr. Raj is a very good teacher. He always finds a fast way to bring relevant review information, as well as clinical references.

Passionate and clear, best nephron segment lecture ever.
By Haichuan H. on 12. October 2019 for Tubular Transport by Nephron Segment

Most lectures about nephron segment is kind of boring. But I really like Dr. Raj's passionate and clear explanation, and the way he sophisticated getting knowledge connected with clinical application. It's the best nephron segment lecture ever.
