Very useful and interesting
By Elena G. on 18. February 2019 for Epithelium: Introduction

I think that this lesson was very interesting and easy to understand. 5 starts out of 5.

 
more detail
By Joseph S. on 31. January 2019 for Primary Varicella (Chickenpox) and Candidiasis (Yeast Infection)

I wish you would have gone into more detail with chickenpox. I know it might not be as common in the US but a lot of people use lecturio for other international tests and chickenpox is still a big deal here (both in clinical practice and licensing exams)

 
very educational
By Richard T. on 30. January 2019 for Upper Limb Anatomy
