positive learning experience
By Lori K. on 10. August 2017 for Learning Outcomes – Critical Thinking and Evidence Based Medicine (EBM)

very clear explanations-It would be nice if there were a few more examples on how to apply PICO though

Not as detailed as "Kaplan"
By Sarisha S. on 26. July 2017 for Screening Tests

This series is good to watch before doing the same section from the Kaplan videos. Don't bank on getting detailed explanations but rather concise i.e. what you need to know!

All over good but there are several aspects that lack more indepth information
By Anastasia L. on 29. April 2017 for Epidemiology and Biostatistics

When paying money I expect to have a more indepth lecture than you can find on youtube. He is good at explaining, but some examples should be explained better, or not brushed over quickly, as well I would suggest to make a couple more videos, that take parts as e.g. confounding and explain it in depth. All in all nice but with some a little bit lacking here and there. I love the fact that they aren't very long, that way you can focus through the whole lecture before taking a break

Great review
By Carolina M. on 11. December 2016 for Descriptive Epidemiology

I loved how he summarizes key concepts in simpler way. One video view and I understood what I lacked from med school.
