Good Lecture, Room for Improvement to Great Lectures
By Samuel M. on 15. March 2019 for Thoracic Viscera

Great course, professor becomes very enjoyable once you get accustomed to his speech and presenting style. Would like to see more highlighting and zooming in of images so I can clearly see and follow what the instructor is referencing. Would also like to see more anatomy lectures, more specific and detailed lectures on more minute anatomical areas.
