Carlo Raj has earned his MD at the Medical University of the Americas (MUA) and continued his medical career as professor of Pathophysiology at the University of Pikeville, Kentucky, and as an international lecturer and author—both assisting MD Edward Goljan and later on his own. Today he is also CEO of Indus Intellect, whose goal it is to spread medical knowledge across the globe.

Relax
By Tracey H. on 21. October 2017 for Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone-System

It would be nice if the material was presented in a less intense manner. It feels more like he is prepping football players for a big game. It is very distracting. Perhaps, if the lecture didn't feel so choppy it would be more enjoyable.

GREAT lecture, clearly dissected topic
By Bjarni J. on 18. October 2017 for Questions and Case Studies – Drugs in Hypertension

I loved how you dissected the topic so clearly, making clear distinctions between the different classes of drugs, how they work, where they work, why we use them and who needs them. GREAT lecture.
