Very detailed
By daisy g. on 25. March 2017 for Functions and Segments – Urinary System

I think if you're looking for a very detailed explanation of the system, I think this video is perfect and it goes at a very good pace too. I only needed an specific amount of information, so I ended up watching a video that was too specific for me to use.

Good lecture
By Rese A. on 06. March 2017 for Regulation of GFR and RBF

Clear and concise, concepts were explained in enough detail and slowly enough to follow.

Absolutely fantastic

Five stars.
By Gonzalo A. on 15. February 2017 for Renal Physiology

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.
