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.

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.
