By Malakamir M. on 04. September 2021 for Respiratory Tract Infections: Introduction

If we compare his lectures with others’, we can find that as if there is a text in front of him and he read it simply. With all respect, his accent is not very comprehensive or I am not familiar with it. I have to read the subtitles to understand what he said. Secondly, there is not any exam question type or cases. If he explained the topics through some developing questions, I think it was better.

fue una conferencia muy clara,organizada,los medios que utilizaron para realizar las presentaciones fueron muy enteractivos ,muy claros, buena iluminacion. por lo tanto me ayudo a enteder el tema, me parecio que los subtitulos iban muy rapido y se me dificulta mucho porque hablo solo español.

Excellent lecture.

Excellent lecture. Crystal-clear on all levels. It gives me the confidence to have an informed opinion on Pertussis next time it comes in the differential diagnosis.
