Excellent! Very clear. I also appreciate the case scenarios he provides.

Logrando en mi un Aprendizaje de Alto Rendimiento
He is a great lecturer!!!!!! Keeps it interesting and concise. On of my preferred lectures
Knowledgeable and thoughtful instruction. He teaches in an easy to follow manner. The material covered was well organized.
I really aprecciate this video because he explained the treatment and action mechanisim
I think the material is extensive and yet concise. The by the side information very interesting.
Excellent explanation, I was able to understand the topic thoroughly. Thank you Sir.
me encantó la exposición super puntual con los datos, entendible!
Have a habit of not seeing the word not so ping another answer - I am a silly dill.Great lecturer John Fisher.
His anecdotes are amazing here. Makes the subject much more memorable.
I am an RN student, 2nd semester. This lecture is very informative. I like when it describing the opportunistic infection, the lecture provides info from the type of illness, s/s, type of diagnostic tests, and treatments.
he is reading his lecture and has long pauses which make it difficult to maintain attention
It was very very good......and just awesome Videos are short and precise and clinical scenario oriented
I think these lectures need to be presented in better way, other lectures are much better. Thank u anyway
it's a well prepared material and professional doctor thank you sir
Exellent course! Helps to review material, focus on the practical things.
This conference is Clear and concise, the information is really useful
Because is not clear what is the Intersticial cystitis. Some diference between the slides and what is talking he about
Thank you Doc. You help a lot to understand and take pleasure in infections diseases. Greetings from Colombia.
The professor incorporates clinical related cases into his lectures which strengthened my clinical sense
This is a high level course, im really happy to have seen this.
What an excellent lecture! I have not seen a comparison of pharyngitis causes shown next to each other so clearly until now. Having the images of throat presentations displayed on the same slide as the narrative goes on was very helpful. Thank you!
If I´m paying for people to read the slides, Im out of this, TBH this whole Lecturio actually is super good only for just a few doctors, like Dr. Raj, and some others, but this man... really? reading everything? I´m actually pissed off.
The teacher is a highly experienced doctor and the way he correlates the lecture with his clinical knowledge is amazing.
John Fisher es uno de los mejores expositores en la plataforma. Felicidades!!! Solo me hubiera gustado escuchar un poco mas respecto a la endocarditis por S. Viridans
Like it very much. Easy to understand, complete and concrete.
Its a really nice summary of what do any doctor needs to know to be prepare in the mission of infront the pathology
thank you so mush it was helpful thank you so mush it was helpful
The experience and knowledge that Dr Fisher has to share is invaluable for up and coming health care providers. I found it humorous and interesting; however, that in his lectures on infective endocarditis he mentioned women cardiologist as almost an anomaly. Something along the lines of... the cardiologists used to be thought of as the jet fighters of internal medicine... and... (OMG!) some of these are women now. Another lecture on the antimicrobial choice for IE he stated..."like we say...let a man buy the beer!" ....what does that mean & what does that have to do with penicillin? I grew up in the south. I've never heard this saying. Who are "we" and, why does a man have to buy beer? I like beer too.
Focuses on the highlights and omits the extraneous details. Felt as though this has helped me master HIV a bit better
Excellent lecture easy to learning ability . I would recommend this to all of Men that are sexually active .
It is a pleasure listening to such an experienced and passionate professor. Thank you! I just wish there was also a part talking about non-bacterial pathogens causing gastroenteritis (viral and parasitic in particular). Thanks again.
God bless u Sir .. you are a great teacher..........refklj bhacskvFX,N CXKBLAV;Wdls C
Dr Fisher has that ability that great lecturers have when lecturing. That plus proper use of multimedia results in a great lecture.
clear about the concepts and emphasizes on each and every topic.
He is a good educator.voice is so clear and not too fast or too slow.Best wishes sir.
Excelente muchas gracias me gusto pude encontrar lo que buscaba.
Thank You sir i really enjoyed your lecture. i hope to see more lectures by you.
Muy buena ponencia, totalmente recomendado, solo me hubiera gustado ver un poco mas sobre encefalitis por priones.
La información de la conferencia es muy practica y concisa , me revela nuevas cosas e inclusive me motiva a seguir investigando mas de fondo el tema. Gracias por su gran aporte Dr. John Fisher.
a lot of help a lot of help a lot of help ssssssssssssssssss
Dr Fisher is clear, succinct and his content is high yield
I usually dislike older professors, but he explains very objectively and up to date.
crystal clear concept.very helpful lecturer.His voice is also very attractive.
an easy and clear concept in brief.His speech quality is sharp.
sometimes i don't like when he reading. it's feel like someone reading and i have to listen. i want him teach with his own words and talk without his script. anyway i thinks he summarizes very good and easy to understand.
I want to know, the interpretation of other lectors on this subject.
He is reading the lecture and not elaborating much. Makes pauses that makes me sleepy and he is does not make it exiting to learn.
very concise and thorough explanations, good diagrams and charts. Thank you Thank you!!!
Dr. Fisher is very thorough in explaining certain details but also very direct to point out important information.
I watched most of the STD lectures. They are well explained and I really appreciate that. THANK YOU
Thank you for the lecture. very good and helpful. I recommend it.
Good lecture on inflamation of mucosa over middle ear cleft
Key elements were clearly identified. He kept it simple while giving most of the pertinent information a physician should know about.
The lectures cover all aspects of each specific disease in a well-organized fashion. Concise and clear explanations .Understandable English language.Excellent lectures for basic and clinical correlations.Most of the questions are clinical vignettes which are informative too.No distractions that is no loss of concentration through the lecture.Although The big picture with comparison between the different diseases worth a separate lecture.
very nice explanation and helpful information, thank you for the knowledge shared here
This guy is very straight forward and clear. Very Helpful.
Clear explanation. Made easy to remember. I would recommend to who ever would like to learn medicine.
Really thorough lectures. Helpful pathophysiology and lots of helpful pictures. I wish every other lecture from other speakers could be like this! Thanks!
concise, really easy to listen to. Gave salient points very well. Loved the pause for thought on the red flag of having a staph aureus urinary tract infection.
Key points were identified quickly. The reinforcement of critical thinking is great!
Very comprehensive. It helps me have a good idea in advance to my Microbiology classes
First of all, love the option to choose the speed of the video clip. Secondly, it was smartly taught, no matter which type you are, from visual to auditory-learner, you are going to understand and learn it easily. I also loved Dr. Fisher's (the lecturer) teaching style, brief description for medical terms, mentioning important DDx, plus his tone and not having specific accent.
I liked the clarity with which the topic was dealt with
The lectures does not go in depth about each types of disease
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!
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.
Very comprehensive discussion. It would have been worthwhile to talk about criteria for starting treatment for chronic Hep B (e.g DNA count vs symptoms and livers functions). Also unclear if treatment of HepB is curative. The hepatitis talks did not mention genotypes of Hep C at all which is important for treating the condition, particularly in countries where access to direct acting antivirals is not available. Finally the talks didn't mention what percentage of patients with chronic Hep B and C go on to develop cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
Good coverage but can be improved further. I would have liked to also see a talk on the parasitic causes of diarrhoe and management of those. Also not sure how we would go about dx salmonella. Wasn't very clearly stated in the lecture
Dr Fisher is my favourite lecturer so far of the internal medicine talks. The discussions are detailed and I don't feel key points are omitted. He is an old school lecture who communicates succinctly and effectively!
I really enjoyed the lectures on CNS infection, very comprehensive and knowledge delivered at a good level. I particularly loved the personal clinical reflections. I will never forget the story about the patient with bread mold infection of the face! Wow!
Absolutely my favorite lecture so far! It was really informative, yet left me craving more. The way you explained it was easy to understand (I am a pre-nursing student). Thank you and great job!
GOOD lecture, it has the most important key points. i like it very much
Excellent presentation style-- he adds a bit of drama to it, which makes the topic more engaging and memorable.
Great lectures and a great lecturer. however missing lower respiratory tract infections. Would be nice if there was some tropical infections included too
Dr Fisher is the best teacher I have ever learned from. All concepts explained very clearly, with lots of great clinical tips thrown in as well. It is a pleasure to watch his lectures.
Short and informative and clear and easy-to-digest and reconsolidation of information takes a shorter time and stays for a longer time compared to huge lectures
very interesting lecture especially with all the details about sounds and secondary signs mentioned.
