Wonderful presentation of SBP!
By Emmanuel G. on 08. April 2023 for Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis (SBP) with Case

Easy to understand, straight-to-the-point lecture! I wished I had seen this when I was doing my IM rotation.

An excellent course within the constraints of the format.
By Arnold C. on 10. February 2023 for Disorders of the Hepatobiliary Tract

I am a professor of medicine and have used Lecturio to review areas outside of my expertise and see how others judge the depth and breadth of material felt appropriate for medical students that I do teach. My concerns are occasional factual errors and slightly misleading or unexplained visuals. However, the presentations are, overall, of high quality and very well delivered. Making more basic science-clinical science correlations and explanations would be great but also very difficult in this format. The case based presentations are well done. For students using this as a main resource, they should be sure to use the provided textbook recommendations and answer all the questions provided, not just those in the lectures. That would deal with all my minor concerns. Medicine cannot be learned with just a series of 5 minute lectures, no matter excellent they are.

Excellent teaching acumen in presenting concepts

Exceptional acumen in anticipating difficulties and nuances in learning the different concepts involving biliary pathology.

Excellent summary of most GI pathologies, perfect if you want to refresh your memory.
By Ameli A. on 01. August 2022 for Disorders of the Hepatobiliary Tract

4.5/5 Excellent summary of most GI pathologies, perfect if you want to refresh your memory. Great slides and presentations. Concise and to the point. I would have given it a 5 if the slides were complete but that's more of a technical problem. Thanks!
