He manages to present the key information in really short time without lacking explanation where it might be needed. All of his lectures are wonderful, no exceptions.

Dr. Alverson along with Dr. Raj are the reason I joined Lecturio. Together, they got me covered in pediatric and adults. Dr. Alverson’s grasp on everything pediatric is such that he is able to convey every piece of information clearly and precisely and more importantly makes it stick. I can easily recall information I learned from him not because I have great memory (I don’t) but because he is that kind of teacher. I know you know which kind I’m talking about. I’m considering pediatrics so he’s basically my idol currently.
