The best medical teaching video.
By Mina A. on 11. June 2017 for Bacterial Meningitis: Diagnosis & CSF Findings

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.

 
A very bad lecture

A very bad lecture. Mistakes that can not be said lecture after lecture
