Lack of 3D figurs
By Iskandar N. on 25. September 2017 for Pelvis

It is good but still needs to be improved. For exsampel if the teachers used the 3D figurs to explain, lecturs would be more cleare. Sometimes only picturs are not enough.

Saved me in anatomy class

Very clear explanations. Areas being discussed are highlighted for visualization. Very thorough. Thank you! Wish you had a video on perineal fascia (colle's, buck's, dartos...) and urine extravasation. Please consider!

Complex topics broken down and made clear
By jeremy c. on 04. November 2016 for Pelvis

My teacher just used Netter pics and said good luck but Dr. Pickering made it approachable and effective by going through each section and giving clear and effective explanation to complex matters.
