The teaching is comprehensive and the video quality is good. I will recommend it to my classmates.

I liked the lecture because everything was explained in a very comprehensible fashion and usually embryology is a difficult subject to understand

Need embryology of breast and its development, please.
By Sarah R. on 07. June 2016 for Embryology: Advanced

Great selections.. still using this as postgraduate (of course not enough) but gives basic fundamentals. Prof, can you please add on embryology of the breast soon?

By Gary C. on 06. June 2016 for Embryology: Advanced

No quizzes on embryology yet. Also the lecturer is knowledgeable but also a little monotone and dry
