Needs more work
By Alison O. on 15. November 2017 for Endocrine Physiology

Way too basic. Need much more depth to actually be useful at all. Wish they were more like the pathology lectures.

Not good
By Akshay C. on 05. November 2017 for Insulin Secretion and Regulation

He not evaluating the pictures. He is saying glut 2 but how can we understand which one glut 2 . I studied this befor3 so I understood. But for a beginner this lecture is waste of time. You better take the way of Dr najeeb lectures
