Great refresher for psych disorders during USMLE prep. Gives clear and concise high yield learning points for each disorder.

 
Excellent explanation of schizophrenia's place in the spectrum of psychotic disorders
By Nicholas C. on 05. March 2020 for Schizophrenia Spectrum and other Psychotic Disorders – Psychological Disorders (PSY)

Dr. Ahuja clearly illustrates the defining characteristics of schizophrenia and psychotic disorders, as this lecture translates the DSM-V material into a brief review of key points.

 
Extremely Comprehensive!
By Tyler P. on 27. March 2018 for Understanding Psychological Disorders: Biomedical vs. Biopsychosocial Approaches – Psychological Disorders (PSY)

I extremely enjoyed this lecture. He is very clear about what he is stating, and he states it in a very comprehensive manner, which is extremely crucial if you have yet to have medical talk down pat. I learned a lot, and I do have learning disabilities, so it can be hard at times. But this isn't one of those times! Love love love it! Much appreciated!
