¡Me gusto muchísimo! Vienen varios temas elementales, solo recomendaría agregar más temas para complementar la sección de neonatología. El doctor explica de manera muy clara los temas.

By Mduduzi M. on 01. December 2020 for Neonatology (Newborn Medicine)

I love the way the topics are explained in detail, how I am given an idea of what to expect from the specific lecture before the lecture starts going into detail...and also the fact that there are subtitles is a plus for me, because it helps me not to lose focus easily
