organized and understandable lecturers
By Jonacy D. on 19. October 2018 for Oral Cavity and Pharynx โ€“ Esophagus and Stomach

The lectures were understandable and well organized presentation. Though few questions were asked, it help students recall things that had been thought. Furthermore, the presentation is separated into regions and it doesn't confuse the students.
