Difficult concept - needs more thorough explanation
By Lane S. on 07. June 2019 for pKa and Drug Solubility – Absorption and Distribution | Pharmacokinetics (PK)

Dr. Shukle, I really struggled in applying the information from this lecture to the quiz. You have been great otherwise!

 
Enjoyable
By Marco A. on 11. May 2019 for Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics

I like his lectures and his pleasant voice. The content is presented very cleanly and structured. Little jokes, e.g., about hospital administrators, make it even more likeable. Even with only traces of math, he gives the feeling of understanding, which is a fantastic characteristic of excellent educators. For me, an engineer for biomedical systems, the course is beneficial.

 
great but can be perfect.
By Reza B. on 22. February 2019 for Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics

great, it was well explained, high yield info and quick review of main things that comes to real practicing . there was a part that was not explained well in one of lectures ( a solution to a problem ) which annoyed me. i recommend watching these lectures at least 2 times, before and then after going through your main text book as an early year med student.
