Clarity and essence
By Anurag M. on 14. April 2017 for Infective Endocarditis (IE): Signs and Symptoms

Not bad
By kimphu n. on 29. March 2017 for Genital and Sexually Transmitted Infections

The lectures does not go in depth about each types of disease

Top Notch Lectures series
By Hamed S. on 28. March 2017 for Urinary Tract Infections

Only addition to the pyelonephritis lecture and the use of imaging would also be if the patients symptoms have not improved following 48 to 72 hours of Abx use!

No mention of Westernblot, Window period and Treatment Failure
By Hamed S. on 28. March 2017 for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV): Diagnosis and Management

I'd would have like to know where western blots fit in the diagnostic pathway. I think in Australia after positive confirmation of p24 go on to perform westernblots. Also what about the impact the window period has and the new for follow up testing? Finally it would have been good to discuss what is considered to be as treatment failure with HAART.
