general overview in determining candidacy for surgery
By Alaena A. on 09. September 2021 for Treatment: Curable and Incurable NSCLC

This lecture provides a good, general overview of deciding if a patient is a candidate for surgery. Though brief, it is much better explained than in review books.

clinical s/s
By Alaena A. on 09. September 2021 for Lung Cancer and Tumors: Presentation

This lecture provides a good overview of clinical signs and symptoms.

good explanation of pathogenesis
By Alaena A. on 08. September 2021 for Asthma: Clinical History

I like the explanation of the pathogenesis and some clarification between allergic and non-allergic asthma.

I don’t appreciate Respiratory lectures.

1- The accent of the lecturer is not comprehensive, as if he tried to emphasize on his accent. Instead of TALK, he said TOK is a simple example! I’m sure if he went to the USA, they will say:” Please repeat!” I myself understand a little the British accent, but he didn’t talk only for the British students or MDs. I had to look at the subtitles. I have not this problem with others. He didn’t use a case problem like a USMLE question to develop his lecture. He simply read what it was in front of him. If I compare the quality of Respiratory lectures with Rheumatology, for example, I can say that I didn’t learn anything.
