Fantastic Lectures
By Samuel M. on 09. February 2019 for Trauma (Emergency Medicine)

Fantastic professor/Dr. very engaging lectures, didn't lose interest or zone out once. I enjoy how she uses a lot of actual clinical advice and stories to put the information in perspective. And she has multiple years of ER experience which is obviously very helpful and makes her lectures more practical.
