Very little information is given, I understand lectures need to be easy and contain important information but this is a summary of a summary

orthopedics is by fare not complete !!

I think overall orthopedic section is lacking. There are a lot of subjects not covered! I like the lecturio concept but i think they need to make the courses more complete and a little more in debth so that it can be really helpfull for medical school.

The video repeats itself midway through. If that was the entire content then this is very superficial.
