Immunology is one of the most important subjects in the USMLE Step 1. Understanding the basics of our immune system and the protection against pathogens and exogenous substances, as well as their disorders and dysfunctions, are essential aspects of the examination.
Prof. Dr. Peter Delves covers the whole of immunology, from the cells, molecules, organs and tissues right through to applied clinical aspects including immunodeficiency, allergy, autoimmune disease, transplantation, tumor immunology, vaccination and immunodiagnostics.

The videos are good! I love how short the immunology videos are because they're broken into segments. I do however miss the review articles, like in biochemistry.
Nothing more i can say than excellent presentations. Every thing is just perfect.
I thought this was an excellent lecture in order to see the relationship between immune cells, their signals, and the corresponding responses from other immune cell types. It brings cytokines that could have been described in the earlier lectures but also fit here with the discussion of signaling.
I found these lectures decent, the questions do a good job at reinforcing the material so more questions after each video would be an improvement. Definitely a large topic and its not organized the way my school taught it but it doesn't assume you know or remember everything which is good. I would recommend for the summer before year 2. You could study during commercial breaks while watching tv.
