By Alexis C. on 10. January 2018 for Descending Aorta – Thoracic Vessels

great lecturer. will highly recommend it to every medical student who want to do better in medschool

very unclear and complicated teaching method, simplify as you can please
By Neuer N. on 02. January 2018 for Obstructive Lung Disease: Areas

Unclear content and so weird method of teaching, there are many alternative ways that could be used to reach the idea more simple

Good although there are quiz erros.
By Tomás N. on 27. December 2017 for Introduction to Pulmonary Pathology

Very good although there are some erros in the quiz. As an exemple, the quiz says that the central receptores are responsive to CO2 when in the physiology course it says that it is in fact responsive to H+ (after a reaction involving CO2). I would recommend some mending in quiz errors.

Would recommend although the pretense of multiple quiz problems.
By Tomás N. on 27. December 2017 for Respiratory Physiology

The course is good but some questions in the quizzes have the wrong correction. Some information in the physiology course is incompatible with the quizzes in pathology. As an example, the information given about the central receptores being sensible to H+ ion and not to CO2 itself (in physiology) is correct but in the pathology course it is considered incorrect in one of the quizzes where we are given the option between CO2, H+ and other ions and the “right” answer is CO2 which is wrong. I would recommended but the quizzes must be checked for erros.
