Effective presentation
By jiawei X. on 31. May 2017 for Pediatric Pulmonology

Very concise, highlighted important concepts, easy to understand and remember. Good visual presentation, and good control of the length of each topic, not too lengthy. I also like that each topic finishes with some questions to help grasping take home messages
