RAAS
By Lisa H. on 21. June 2018 for Renin Angiotensin Aldosterone – Drugs in Hypertension

Simple way to understand the RAAS system and the meds associated with it.

 
Highly recommended course.

Dr. Raj has made learning nephrology fun. I have struggled with this subject for many years, however after watching these lectures I finally get it! Thank you Dr. Raj!

 
He makes it look easy.
By Robert B. on 23. May 2018 for Urinalysis

As always, Dr. Raj’s lectures are clear, concise, and memorable. He has a unique, honed talent for explaining this material. I have been in school for a long time, and had many professors. I am not exaggerating when I say that Dr. Raj is the best medical lecturer ever formed.

 
Dr. Raj is the best.

His fluid, conversational presentation style really makes it stick. I do not want my classmates to know about him.
