Management section can be improved
By Hamed S. on 27. March 2017 for Hepatitis: Diagnosis and Management

Very comprehensive discussion. It would have been worthwhile to talk about criteria for starting treatment for chronic Hep B (e.g DNA count vs symptoms and livers functions). Also unclear if treatment of HepB is curative. The hepatitis talks did not mention genotypes of Hep C at all which is important for treating the condition, particularly in countries where access to direct acting antivirals is not available. Finally the talks didn't mention what percentage of patients with chronic Hep B and C go on to develop cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

 
What about parasitic causes?
By Hamed S. on 27. March 2017 for Gastrointestinal Infections

Good coverage but can be improved further. I would have liked to also see a talk on the parasitic causes of diarrhoe and management of those. Also not sure how we would go about dx salmonella. Wasn't very clearly stated in the lecture

 
Short and informative and clear and easy
By Schuschu I. on 30. January 2017 for Watery Diarrhea: E. Coli

Short and informative and clear and easy-to-digest and reconsolidation of information takes a shorter time and stays for a longer time compared to huge lectures
