Great visual way to learn anatomy
By Anarkali M. on 03. May 2018 for Gastrointestinal Gross Anatomy

I wish I had these videos as a 1st-year med student to learn anatomy. These lectures were great, and I love using them to review before starting residency (currently 4th year student). The general-to-specific approach is wonderful to make sure students always know exactly where everything is

Very well explained. I never understood abdominal wall that much. I wish you did all the courses
