By David D. on 08. June 2017 for Thyroid Gland – Neck

Good pace, but information relating to the thyroid gland is lacking. This is more of a general overview.

By Laura P. on 24. April 2017 for Endocrine Histology

Everything is perfectly explained. Maybe I've missed Pineal Gland but I don't have more words for all the videos that I'm watching from Lecturio. Is a new system to learn, and in my opinion, I'm learning more than in classes because you can stop the video in any time. Thanks

introduction to thyroid
By Tara B. on 06. April 2017 for Thyroid Gland – Neck

clear and concise introduction to the thyroid gland and thyroidectomy relative to the fascial spaces

Very general
By Mazen N. on 27. March 2017 for Thyroid Gland – Neck

it is extremely general and does not provide the important notes about the gland like its blood suplly, innervation and details about what could be damaged if a thyrodectomy was preformed wrongly.
