The courses and lectures are great. They have great information, and the lecturers go at a good pace. It has been a great supplement to my histology class, and has been a very useful resource. It has all the information I need, and is easy to follow with Dr. Meyer.

Amazing resource
By Daniela T. on 17. September 2016 for Human Organ Systems

Prof. Geoffrey Meyer is amazing, he is exactly the kind of teacher I learn the most from. I have been using Lecturio as my main study resource for Histology and so far I've been doing great in that class and everything I've learned, or at least most of it, is staying in my memory for a long time.
