The lecture is enough detailed so one does not fall behind compared to others who choose to read about this topic. The lecturer speaks slow and calm, and he is very articulate.

Slightly distracting
By Andrea B. on 02. February 2017 for Renal Physiology

The images and lecture format are very helpful, but I get very distracted every time this professor mis-speaks or stumbles on the lecture. I'm not sure why the lecture is posted with these errors since they can be confusing when you're learning the material for the first time.

physiology made simple
By Yaniv I. on 23. December 2016 for Renal Physiology

Excellent. The explanation is clear and concise and so are the graphics which with he explains. Wish I had this when i was taking physiology courses (in comparison to now that I am using it to review for the equivalency exam in Spain). USE IT.
