By Gulbanu S. on 06. July 2021 for General Surgery

I liked it very much this course as it has covered all acute abdomen really well!!! And I especially like it it Diff diagnostics And illustrations are brilliant ! And way of explaining is really neat and precise!!! It is really handy to know as a foreign doc How to pronounce the some surgical vocabulary in English language. Yes! I will definitely recommend for foreign graduates to use this course and it has my preferred language on the bottom of the screen As well if I needed for instance.

By James H. on 12. June 2021 for Special Surgery

this series of lecture is too light to learn with it : this is a list of facts, but not an explanation of what's actually going on so as to give sense to the material

Good review
