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.

Epidemiology and Biostatistics 101. Awesome
By Rolando C. on 04. December 2016 for Epidemiology and Biostatistics: Introduction

It made epidemiology very easy to understand, remember and apply it to my practice. It helped me a lot in appraising available evidence and use it in making appropriate and prudent clinical decisions in taking care of my patients .

Not thorough enough for me.
By thea r. on 15. November 2016 for Epidemiology and Biostatistics

I thought it would be more thorough. Unfortunately many videos out there are just summaries and do not try to redress the problem of poor lecturing during medical shool that leaves students like me looking for a service that will give more in depth lecturing. I would have liked more explanation of concepts, e.g. P values, null hypothesis, etc.
