Great stuff.
By Frederikke J. on 16. August 2017 for Renal Physiology

Great couse. Detailed, but made simple. I thought it was very useful and great that there were a bit more questions than what i've seen in some of the previous series i've been watching. I would definently recomend it to others. I study veterinarian medicin, so i would ofcourse have loved it if you also made courses for that, because i still have to study the species differences from my book after watching the series - but it is great that I can get the main principles from your lectures it truly does help a lot.

Loved these lectures! They are all I've hoped for. Profesor Wilson explains everything so well and has helped me a lot so far.

Very mixed reveiw.
By Jermey B. on 03. June 2017 for Changes in Body Fluid Compartment

Did good job explaining some of the expected changes, but a poor job at others and simply stated direction of arrow without explanation. Overall, a good lecture but definitely room for more detail to be discussed. Also, very surprised effects of acute blood loss/trauma was not covered.

A little disappointed
By Jermey B. on 20. May 2017 for Renal Physiology

I felt it lacked detail of specific transporters, and no references to any diseases or drug MOAs. Not very detailed for medical review/test prep.
