By Grace K. on 08. September 2021 for Personality Disorders

i chose this rating because , lecturio gave me broader understanding of this topic Helen did a great job with explaining the concept, and i love it. i will always recommend lecturio to my friends in medical school, until everyone gets to know about this great opportunity to learn smartly.

Well structured course
By Anurag D. on 10. May 2021 for Personality Disorders

The lectures are very well structured. They give ample examples of what potential cases may look like. We are encouraged to think about how to apply this knowledge in practice. Throughout this course, the subsequent lectures reference previously learned concepts, so that we have a clearer understanding of the differences and similarities between the topics.

Dr Farel is great. She presents things very well. Everything is clear. Important things are pinpointed. The chronology (diagnostic, etiology, Clinics, treatment...) is well put. It’s a pleasure to listen.

Good job....
