Its was perfect explanation But not 5 since i still have questions
There is a lot of information, and that is good, but the slides don't mention those information briefly.
Thank you so much, I was waiting for a video as clear as this one! Great explanation!
It's pretty precise and I appreciate the professor showing images while explaining.

In general, I find the lectures provided in Lecture to be of exceptional quality. This one is not only below that standard, but, for me, it fails entirely as an instructive tool especially in regard to the discussion around the first figure. Basic principles to convey information are missing, and when combined together make for a frustrating experience where little to no information is really conveyed. 1. The labels are indicated only as the lecturer speaks. The slide never shows the labels at one time only. (I understand the lecturer wishes to flag the information he is talking about. This could just as easily been done with a figure that shows all of the labels but uses color or boldness to draw our attention to the item under discussion. Better yet, in lieu of highlighting the label, highlighting the actual anatomical item is even more effective). 2. The labels are not adjacent to each other so that the reader looses a visual relation. This is a circular structure with consistent layering, yet the labels jump from side to side for no reason. This is not only distracting but prevents us viewers from easily following the structure along with the discussion. 3. There is no rhyme or reason to the coloring. Connective tissue and muscle are both pink and yellow. This makes it impossible for the viewer to quickly appreciate the structures. Frankly, from this lecture, I have no clue what is where in terms of the layer of the esophagus and the location of each plexus. I ask each of you at Lecturio who are reading this review to see if you are able to grasp this information after reviewing this lecture. In addition to fixing this lecture, it is my hope to hear from Lecturio as to whether the company has in place an editorial team to ensure that basic principals to successfully convey information, as has been done in this lecture, are never missed. After all, we students are paying for a professional service to help educate us, not waste our time. Thank you for your consideration.
Such personality! Loved your lecture Dr. Raj! Keep up the good work!
Excellent class. It help me so much to separate what is really important, from what it's not. Very clear
Carlo Raj simply read the slides, he could've said so much more about this important topic...
AS ALWAYS DR.CARLO RAJ IS A MAGICIAN (WHO CONVERTS TOUGH TOPICS =EASY TOPICS)
I like it because it's easy to use and qualified one
Great summaries. The professor was able to learn and concisely explain all topics at hand.
nice explanation for complicated topic like peritoneum and it is subdivisions . first time i get it all thank you
Overall good course with an extraordinary professor with brief and precise explanations of the different topics. The only thing I would add not only to histology course, but to Lecturio is more questions in the q bank. Or different type of questions. Most of them are straight forward from the video and not enough critical thinking in my opinion. I would like to see an improvement in this area
Excellent way of teaching with high yield information,kudos to Dr.Raj
This course is presented in a very simple format that help you to understand the concepts. They utilize short videos that make it easier to digest the information. Also, they have a short quiz after the majority of the videos to help you see if you are getting the information. Very useful. This course is helping me a lot reviewing the information for my GI tract exam. Thanks!
Excellent lecture all concepts very succint and co-ordination activity of contractions are appreciated very much and the magnitude of gi secretions enlighted
Great lecture , excellent review of all the diseases shown in the video
They are really all good; and great for medical school Students.
amazing lecture , i want tobe like doctor raj he is my hero
This course in general is very well explained, but this conference has really been very clear for my understanding of this subject. Thanks Dr. Wilson!
He has a way to pass on knowledge and it’s stick!!!!
Excellent lecture by Dr.Raj , i like it very much. i love his sense of humor
Very well explained, makes remembering the difference between the cancers memorable!
The best lectures I've seen on the Hepatology. Best teaching style by the faculty. I would highly recommend the Lecture series.
Using Lecturio makes understanding and subsequent digesting and memorization of the material, so much easier. The lectures and notes are concise and to the point.
He is an excellent teacher that help me understand the concept very well
A great teacher that make concept to sink well. Does a Great job!!!
These lectures on the gastrointestinal histology were more than helpful to me, as they came in handy for, firstly, comprehending the overall picture and, secondly, for taking note on the details (such as the types of cells that make the gastric glands or the intestinal glands)
Great presentation- using anatomical and engineering views of the system helped to understand the structure and its function
V we ry simple an very informative the same time. Really appreciate it. Thank you
Dear Dr. Pickering, you do a great work by explaining this difficult topics in such an easy way. Thank you for so interesting lectures.
Excerlent course. All key points are presenting clearlly and I would recommend them to my classmates.
Very clear explanation and quick review after the topic explanation. Geoffrey also exposes tricks for remembering key items. I admire very much this professor.
very good teacher, brings a lot of practical information. nice vid
Clear explanation and differentiation. Eliminates confusion and is concise but complete
A very good explanation of the topic and we can understand it so well and can learn from the questions that they ask at the end of the topic
I like the Indian style- I trained in India very good 3 different lecturers and all good
This lesson is very methodical and easy to understand finally especially after years being away from school.
Videos are short and simple and good...but some topics should be given in more detail.
Dr. Wilson your lectures are so clear and straight forward that it gave me a whole new level of understanding and appreciation for physiology. Just Perfect, re watchable, Enjoyable and concise . Thanks this will definitely be helping so much future doctors, I'll easily recommend this to my classmates obsessively.
Dr. Raj as usual Concise + Direct + Very clinically relative = LIFE SAVER
I think it lacks important things and that it's too basic.
What a great lecture and what a great professor. Thank you !!! :) Awesome!
The teaching is excellent and more from a practical point of view.
excellent use of images and highlights during the lecture, congrats
It is difficult to understand everything that the teacher says.
Excellent, very detailed, now feel more confident in the treatment and care of this infection
I chose this rating because everythingbis told and no details are left behind and also that it is told so well.
Best explanation,Dr.Raj makes any difficult topic very easy. thank you very much Sir
Excellent summary of hep B. Thorough explanation of serology. Thanks Dr Raj!
Nicely and easily explained. Thank you so much Dr Meyer
very easily and well explained lecture about the esophagus. thank you for the explination
Dr. Carlo Raj is not competent in all of that spheres, why you put him in all videos? Very difficult to understand.
He is the best I have ever seen.The way he broke down the topic was really commendable
Dr. Raj mostly did a good job teaching, but I would have appreciated a bit more pathophysiology and explanations e.g. for alcoholic fat liver disease.
It's clear and understandable.I learnt nearly all of the topic
Clear and concise with high yield facts Makes learning a pleasure! Ability to play pause and reply lecture sequences is a great feature!
Really covered a lot of the material I need, which was not what other platforms offered. can be just a tad bit more extensive on the hepatology and also endoscopic procedures and ERCP/ MRCP. also mentioning what is the gold standard for certain diagnosis when applicable would be amazing.
Well explained and i clearly understand how digestion and absorption be done.
Short and precise videos. They are extensive and short. Would be nice if you had more of this kind on GI physiology though
Did not feel comfortable with the accent, way of communicating the information, way of pausing between one point and another. I am sorry to say that, but to me, and this is my personal view, and no offense, it is irritating
Dr. Raj does an excellent job in explaining the material and tying everything together. He will even be funny at times.
The list is very disorganised, I hope it get fixed ASAP
The content is not up date but the general content is regular
I LOVE THE WAY TO MAKE IT EASIER THAN THE BOOKS, THEY. ARE COMPLEMENTING AND I´M LEARNING
EXCELENT, I HAVE UNDERSTOOD EVERYTHING, ALL I WAS NEEDING WAS TO FIND A VIDEO LIKE THIS. REALLY GOOD JOB
its very good but plz there is some videos without translate!!
He explains everything so well; this is exactly the kind of question we get on our exams in university of maastricht. It's detailed, but serology explanation is really helpful
it is quite helpful ! i recommend it ! well explained and organized
Concrete and useful information. Explanation is simple a to the Pointer.
Provided a cohesive picture in an order that made sense! I love the order that the videos are in to build that picture.
The description of the layers of tissue above vs. below the arcuate line has been explained to us in the PA anatomy class, yet remained unclear. After the visuals and the step-by-step walk through in your lecture, finally, I understand! Thank you! :)
This man is obviously very smart but it is seriously painful to listen to ANY of his lectures. His stuttering is way to distracting.
The way that Dr. Wilson teaches is really good and make things easier.
Dr. Raj is obviously invested in our learning the topics. He emphasizes certain words or points that you pick up on right away. No boring power point regurgitation!
Bcs he explained everything very smoothly. And I understand faster. And am happy to be part of this wibsite
Great delivery of PBC. one of the best pathophysio professor for step 1 review
I enjoy Dr Carl a lot, great and clear and more so easy to understand. Makes medicine a lot more fun
Dr. Pickering walks through each piece of parietal and visceral peritoneal pleura and makes it so much easier to understand. Great video!
Best video I have found on the inguinal canal! Simple, clear and easy to understand.
This subject was so difficult to study in my textbook, but this lecture series on the inguinal canal has been a life-saver! Dr. Pickering really clarifies this topic for you.
not really clear. Not a good graphic to show and not highlighted properly to see the clear course of th arteries
wached pathoma and then went for this . explaiation not up to the mark
I would totally recommend this course, I like how it was organized and how it explained the different biological processes implied on HCl production
This may be the best tutor in lecturio, according to my preference of high tempo, fast questions and high yield facts. He promts, even urge you to be your best.
content is superb but need more explanation on this topic
Simple and efficient, thanks for the french traduction, your video and quizz help me a lot !
Pude entender facilmente el tema. Me gusta muchisimo lo breve y resumido que es el tema y que se apoya en ilustraciones que facilitan el aprendizaje.
Informative! There were quite a few different things i learned from this lecture. I now have a better understanding of the disease.
Speaks too fast Could include more detail Pronunciation was a little bit strange
Very clear . The image is excellent. The causes of the hernia are taken in other lectures and this one is focused on the way that is made. perfect for a first approximation to surgery.
Things are set in a context and clinically related Easy and straightforward.
Useful lecture especially for the description of the congenital abnormalities of the developing hindgut
Made it easier to study for an exam because it was simple
no professors in my college took me this concept as easy and clearer like Dr. James Pickering
All the necessary informations, briefly and easy to understand, nice as a review
Every aspect is accurate and explained well In all aspects
Every aspect of the lecture is well explained. Presented accurately . Every part of it is very clearly understood by all. Very good topic
A rare topic presented very well. It is very accurate to understend for any one
It is a nice prasentation with a prompt accuracy and clear discription
Very nice topic told very clearly and every thing is clearly underdtood
very easy to understand . watched the same video several times. loved it
always great to check back Professor James Pickering lectures to refresh your knowledge of anatomy.
Thank you so much for the lectures. This is pretty thorough and easy to understand.
Very well explained, and the diagrams are very didactic. It is a complicated topic, but it was easy to follow and to understand.
satisfying. I am watching the lectures with enthusiasm. Great guy. Very helpful for the exam.
Muy buen video, claro y concreto, me gustó mucho su charla.
I used to think Dr. Raj was far and away the greatest medical educator alive. I didn't even watch anyone else. I used Lecturio just for Dr. Raj's videos. Dr. Raj is funnier, and perhaps more memorable. However, Dr. Shulke presents the same level of clear, concise explanations, the kind that only come from the mind of a master who has internalized the material to the point of making it look easy. I love the part where Dr. Shulke boldly calls prednisone a clumsy tool for incompetent practioners. That is with me forever. I feel bad for my classmates struggling through our professors' awkward lectures. .
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.
love him, he cares and it shows. he does a great job explaining, in his own words/way
Very strange pauses while speaking, felt condescending at times. Not like his other videos, he seemed not confident in the material
it's good in short. pharmacology is a complicated subject, but his lecture makes these huge topics helpful.
like it very much, nothing to say too more. His lecture is very easy to understand.
everything is ok and demarcated I invite soroosh naderian and shaghayegh sobhani and reza rostami to try this site
fantastic teaching with instant impact to improve self confidence and boost knowledge
Great lecture and Dr. Raj is wonderful. My only comment would be to add a bit of information about the pathogenesis tied to the different etiologies
Easy to understand :D Very helping me to study better and better
He is clear, full of substance without any need to explain but gives accurate description.
Excellent content, very well explained and really a help to my studies.
I believe when someone truly knows and love what it does is able to simplify things and teach in a away easy to understand. Thank you
i dont know why but i dont like this lecturer in his slides here is lot of ontroversies slides says one thing and lecturer says another thing
Very clear explanation. Very easy to follow and understand each topic.
Excellently explained everything. I was looking for alternative to Kaplan and I think this is it.
Great professor, he simplifies all the topics to the level of understanding even when the lecture is watched for the first time.
Excellent! Dr Carlo covered hepatology well. Thank you so much.
Wish I had known about this website sooner:( I hope all the lectures here are like this.
The GI physiology was very detailed. It helped to reinforce what I learnt in class. Good overall.
Simple and straightforward and short and sweet which is good.
lacking crucial points about pathogenesis - egthe pathogenesis of cirrhosis (ie stellate cells), does not link key symptoms and signs with pathology, just provides a list instead.
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
the lession is very insteresting, but i think i could be explained a little better, showing and explaining an image of CXR of atelectasis, sentinel loop AXR. Also it coulde be better if hidroclorotiazied mecanism way of producing muscle weakness is explained after answering the question of the quizz, and the indications of the ERCP explained. Thanks
Dr Meyer did a great job summarizing the major histological divisions of the GI tract. The lecture was clear and concise and really cleared up some confusion I was having.
To the point. lesson for life, highyieal, we’ll categorized
This is the best explanation. Thanks Doctor James. I can t stop watching it again and again.
Very great video, as someone probably mention earlier a bit more pathophys would be appreciated
Everything that you need to know is in this lecture series.
The content was great exactly what you need to know. However the lectures didn’t appear in order and the first three lectures were mixed up.
The review was easy to understand with clear explanation. I also appreciated the test sample after the lecture. It tested my knowledge regarding the subject matter thank you
Very knowledgeable professor who also understands to teach his subject in an accessible way. His course helped me a lot to get a good basic understanding of Histology
He is the best lecturer on this site.His style of teaching is very powerful.He is not too fast, he knows when to pause for a second, when to repeat a word.Thank u Sir.
Lots of materials covered in a short time. Very good review lectures
i wish i had this prof. James pickering for all the anatomy lectures! he's so fun to watch... greaaaat lectures
Clear, concise and good lecture. The professor is very easy to follow, and does a good job emphasizing what he thinks important.
The excellent pictures helps a lot. Easy understanding. Very good professor.
Great lecturer who is very knowledgeable about the subject matter & pitch. Pace is also good but needs to work on pronunciation of certain words. keep up the good job.
there is no subtitle and marks on the slide are not good enough to understand lecture
I know that you spent a lots of time to learn physiology. You provide us in a very short time. I am very excited to follow your videos and I relay appreciate your presentations. GOD BLESS YOU.
Teacher making the concepts crystal clear thank you , also all the portions are covering
Thank you for these organized, concise, and well-prepared lectures, Dr. Meyer !!!
A Well-done explanation of Lipid Absorption ! Thank You, Dr. Meyer !
Clear as always. I like the way he emphasizes things. A lot
Thank you, Dr. Pickering ! Your lectures are concise, organized, and highlights important points.
best of the best! everything is well explained in a short time! saved me a lot of time and understood GIT so well!
very well explained! i enjoyed this lecture so much better than all other lectures of histology
questions don't go along well with the lecture sometimes questions pops out before discussed. AND please mark. i kept getting lost and try to figure which part you're talking about.
It seems superficial. Why do I care about flow rates? How do the hormones interact? This whole course was just segmented and surface level. Lecturio has the potential to replace a lot of medical schools if they start to connect information rather than segmenting it.
The Anatomy Portion of this course was great. It really prepared me for my school course. The GI Physiology seemed pretty superficial and left me wanting to know more. Even the questions after the videos seemed like they expected the Lectures to have gone more into depth.
Comprehensive Detailed with anatomy Clinical examples Minimum words Great explanations
It's too boring.. I found it less interactive, less interesting. Better to read my Gray's Anatomy book.
Just like reading a Gray's Anatomy book, but this time, I am just listening to him.
This diagram sums up everything and really helpful. I will do this kind of diagram for every arterial supplies. Thank you for giving me the idea. Really appreciated
These lectures are very informative, detailed. I learned a lot from the lectures.
very detailed, clear, and professional. Related with clinic. I like his lectures very much.
This was a very clear, easy to learn and memorize lecture.
James is really helping me a lot I did very well on my med school midterms but started getting lost in anatomy this has been such a motivation for me I wish I had found him soooner! I would love some more anatomy questions especially relevant for the NBME Board exam! Garrett
high yield review for finals and it's pretty direct and the important matters are stated.
Very good lecture. Clear presentation, properly indicated so very easy to follow.
Difficult to follow many of Dr. Meyer's course because of poor marking of the area under discussion. Also, questions jump into the middle of lecture, very disruptive.
Wow.. What a Wonderfull course! Actually, I have linked the short videos that Dr. Carlo made with other educational videos, then I read the articles for each lecture, It was really like I have covered all of the I linked the peptic perforation with celiac trunk artries Or GIT Hormones with Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome. Thank you doctor Carlo.. from my heart really..
Easy to understand and to follow.It was so easy to learn some really high yield concept. I used it with the first aid and the result was awesome.Totally recommend it.
So easy to understand, and dinamic i will recommend this lecture
For the slide about the lumbar nerves, only subcostal (T12) is listed. It would be helpful to list other nerves, such as iliohypogastric (T?) and ilioinguinal (T?).
I absolutely loved his teachings methods! Learning at it's finest for beginners!
Dr Ray is very funny and know how to give his lecture in order to make everyone understand the core concept.
Thank you very much Dr. Raj for explaining such difficult concept and make it so easy to understand.For everyone we don't have so much time to read and to cope with boring lecture.
There are many more symptoms of oropharyngeal dysphagia than those mentioned (e.g. increased chewing time, inability to form bolus etc.). Also, referral to speech pathology would provide additional insight into the patient's dysphagia.
I liked very much because its a didactic and interest way to learn.
Very Comprehensive lecture and lecture notes, covering a vast area within 3 to 4 mins
It was very usefull but the problem it has no much pathophysiology informations
thank you prof Raj for the good explanations, you know how to keep the attention of the student
Good lectures, nice and understandable. Very good slides. I like the voice of lecturer.
Very good lectures nice and concise with no beating around the bush
Very informative, great lecturer, easy to understand and perks the interest throughout the videos!
good lecture- lost a star because illustrations are in latin. I do appreciate latin is completely acceptable to use in the context of anatomy, but in practice nobody uses latin terms and it feels outdated and counter-productive to learn the latin nomenclature. It would be much easier to follow if everything was in english ; a small point but it did slow me down when following this lecture.
Why am I rating this lecture at all? I had to pause a video just to wrote this review because I was just so grateful that it was broken down so well with the schematic diagram. I was feeling overwhelmed with the amount of information in the blood supply and wondering if there was a way i can get it down quickly and have the concept clear in my mind. These schematics are awesome and are saving my medical life right now!!!!
The course is detailed and the instructor is very systematic with the information.
super fain explicat, usor de inteles mi-am clarificat problemele cu hormonii, enzimele , SNV
sunt destul de multumit de aceste cursuri , totusi , se poate si mai bine
Very funny the way that he explains everything, make difficult concept very much easy to understand and with high yield information!!!
Very clear and simple presentation Many exercises after all videos I would recommend it to my colleague
Great lectures. The salivary gland part was a bit confusing. Seems to be lacking context.
Used this to study for class and regular exams. Perfect.
the tutuor did a great job but i find this topic diffucult and did not get a clear picture of it yet
I'm a huge fan of Dr. Raj so this may be a bit biased. Dr. Raj does an excellent job of hitting the high points and his anecdotes are quite relevant. You almost feel as though you're on rounds or in the clinic and there's a patient presenting with symptoms. Video examples of the endoscopes would be awesome btw.
I like it, please make high eyelid question, I ll really appreciate it,thanks
I felt that there where some details missing, Dr. Raj did give out the basic description of the majority of diseases, but if the videos where a little more complete I wouldn't of felt the need to go read and look some where else
Good way of classifying the causes but missed out on defining the pressure (>5 mmHg) and potential treatment options such as propranolol, TIPS etc.... Also what about the potential complications, which would have been perfect to discuss here ie variceal bleeds
Missed another important benign tumour of the liver that would have been worthwhile covering
It would have been great to list the most common agents that could potentially lead to liver toxicity aside from paracetamol, incl phenytoin, statins, amiodarone, methotrexate. Also not sure if this would be discussed in the Emergency Medicine talks but actually working up the patient and what to do from a monitoring point of view once a diagnosis of paracetamol overdose would have been really helpful. It would have been worth noting that acetylcysteine most efficacious within 8 to 10 hours after ingestion of paracetamol.
It would have been good to discuss the use IV arantiprotease for the management of this condition. Moreover a little bit of discussion about the genetics of this conditions how it influences the disease presentation and natural history.
It would have been useful to go over the Rome III criteria to have an appreciation of the diagnostic criteria. Moreover, it would be extremely beneficial to cover the red flags
For example no mention of primary scelorising cholangitis, need for colonscopy after 8 yrs of active disease and subsequent colectomy if premalignant lesions identified. Also no mention of toxic megacolon. It would have been good to discuss the hierarchy of management in these patients
A superficial talk about an important contributor to malabsorption. I think it would have been good to discuss why we need to assess for the prescence of IgA to begin with. What the role of HLA is in the disease. Moreover, the importance of biopsy as well as the long term complication of celiac disease include osteoprosis, neurological impairment and enteropathy associated T-cell lymphoma.
It would would have been good to further elaborate on dx testing and in which clinical circumstances one would be more appropriate over the other. Also with the increasing incidence of resistant organisms I feel the lecture didn't adequately outline appropriate second line management. Also the error regarding PPI which was flagged by another listener
I think the lectures provide a quick summary of these sections. However, I don't think it is adequate depth particularly when it comes to management. This is exemplified by the management of oesophageal varices where it is unclear which management approach will be utilised first/preferred in the case of acute bleed nor is it clear when you will need to utilise TIPSS. Finally a number of diagnostic tests are mentioned throughout the talks but the audience is not provided with a basis to approach the patients sitting on front of them. As an example if a patient complains of dysphagia or dyspepsia what will be your first diagnostic tests and the order in which you will perform these test. I think this the higher level thinking required for step 2
No mention of ongoing follow up and grades of barrett's
am medical student i always interst to learn physiology and more other medical courses
So far the path lectures on my iPhone are great. I drive 30 minutes to school each way and I think they are very comprehensible even when it's this more passive learning style. They are perfect for getting my brain ready for school and winding down on the drive back.
his lecture is short & more useful good for practice study easily
GREETINGS; I gave it a five star rating,b'coz this is first time i m encountering such a review course which is very concise, yet so enlightening that u get a complete grasp of the most important topics in HEPATOLOGY .I w'd recommend these lecture courses for all 3rd year medical students in this part of world [ASIA].The best part about these lectures n personally which i liked the most [as i being a critical care post graduate student] r the ''IN USE'' criteria for liver transplantation like KING'S COLLEGE CRITERIA n criteria for prognostications, like charcotte--pugh n MELD SCORING. CARLO RAJ SIR REALLY ROCKS
Since December 2013, Several DAA drugs were approved by FDA. So you can update this lecture.
Very good for review. Covered everything I needed to know for a speedy review.
Thanks for the efforts but I think It is more like reading slides not explaining.
Very informative, engaging and interesting. Clean and crisp presentation. Just Love it!
Used for the study in chiropractic school, need a quiz for review the material that is learned by the videos.
