Bien explicados los conceptos. Esquemas claros y fáciles de entender. Debiera ser un curso aplicable a muchas instituciones de salud para que se entienda mejor la actual pandemia de COVID 19.

The course is very well presented and didactic. Very good slides. The presentator must talk a little bit slower.

Recommended professor!

Professor Deonandan is excellent. He teaches with clarity, profundity, and conviction. The explanations are clear and the examples help to understand the concepts. Additionally, his tone and rhythm are very adequate, making it easy to understand for those of us that English is not our native language.
