I wish this course included more details & more explanations. It feels rushed through and superficial, although it may be enough for preparing the step 2.

Topic is General Surgery. Acute Abdomen.
By Gulbanu S. on 06. July 2021 for General Surgery

I liked it very much this course as it has covered all acute abdomen really well!!! And I especially like it it Diff diagnostics And illustrations are brilliant ! And way of explaining is really neat and precise!!! It is really handy to know as a foreign doc How to pronounce the some surgical vocabulary in English language. Yes! I will definitely recommend for foreign graduates to use this course and it has my preferred language on the bottom of the screen As well if I needed for instance.

Good but short
By Marah A. on 31. March 2021 for General Surgery

I had choose this rating because I enjoyed the lectures and the assessment of quizzes after each class. A bad thing is that I think it’s too short and I need to read from other sites , and if I had a wrong answer it didn’t say why ? But stay I enjoyed it.
