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.

Concise yet easy to grasp
By Joecymar O. on 11. October 2016 for Epidemiology and Biostatistics

The lecturer explains the concepts very clearly and makes them easy to understand. All that in a minimal amount of time!

Good material, so compacted
By Alvaro F. on 06. October 2016 for Epidemiology and Biostatistics

The professor is going to fast, and the example are not clearly understanding.
