Thad is a god
By Magnus-André M. on 08. January 2018 for Renal Physiology

He's very detailed and slow-paced. Making it very easily understandable. I've had physiology for a whole semester, and first after watching his videos, I've finally started to understand the whole picture of each system.

This Renal Course absolutely need work
By John V. on 04. December 2017 for Renal Physiology

I thought this was the worst taught course Lecturio has to offer. I was left confused most of the time. Fortunately Ive used lecturio for other courses and was very satisfied so I will still recommend this program.

This lecture needs works
By John V. on 03. December 2017 for Integrated Control of Blood Volume: Overview

This lecture left me confused at exactly the interplay between these two systems. Perhaps its the diagram. I was lost after Decreased Osmolality. I think that is where this lecture goes down hill.
