Invaluable shared knowledgte
By susan l. on 09. March 2019 for Infectious Diseases

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

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.
