Highly recommended for clarity, depth and structure
By Jacob R. on 03. September 2016 for Respiratory Medicine: Introduction

Amazing clarity and excellent structure. Note taking was very easy as the structure is very consistent and logical throughout all lectures. Highly recommend this to get an idea of the breadth of rest medicine, with appropriate depth for medical school exams.

A great framework for organising respiratory learning

Fantastic series of lectures set out in a clear and concise fashion. A great primer for organising future learning in respiratory medicine, and a solid foundation of facts and organising principles.
