Peritoneum Lectures
By Parvaneh B. on 25. January 2018 for Peritoneum: Conclusion

Thank you, Dr. Pickering ! Your lectures are concise, organized, and highlights important points.

By RAMJIE L. on 18. January 2018 for Muscles of the Anterolateral Abdominal Wall โ€“ Abdominal Walls and Inguinal Canal

It's too boring.. I found it less interactive, less interesting. Better to read my Gray's Anatomy book.

By RAMJIE L. on 18. January 2018 for Abdominal Regions and Reference Planes โ€“ Surface Anatomy of the Abdomen

Just like reading a Gray's Anatomy book, but this time, I am just listening to him.
