RAAS
By Lisa H. on 21. June 2018 for Renin Angiotensin Aldosterone – Drugs in Hypertension

Simple way to understand the RAAS system and the meds associated with it.

 
Teacher needs to loosen up in front of the camera.
By Flora I. on 31. May 2018 for Renal Embryology

The instructor is so stiff with his speech pattern that it is difficult to follow what he is saying. He doesn't pause like he should at the end of sentencs and will begin new sentences with the word "and" even when the new sentence isn't a continuation to the sentence he just finished. This forces me to have to relisten to his information so that I can understand what he is saying--I value my time.

 
Superb!
