Interesting Lecture without becoming Boring
By Curtis M. on 16. May 2017 for Upper Limb Anatomy

Great lecturer! Covers the topic without becoming bogged down in the details.

Precise enunciation, simplified explanations, attention grabbing
By Steven S. on 24. March 2017 for Cutaneous Innervation and Venous Drainage of Upper Limb

Doctor James offers precise simplified explanations which are easy to understand and it is easy to remain concentrated throughout the lecture. I liked the way he helped me draw a mental picture of the venous system of the upper limb from the hand to the heart. I would recommend this video to people who are considering taking the USMLE step 1

Contrast of Lectures
By Ebenezer G. on 02. March 2017 for Upper Limb Anatomy

Lectures on Anatomy of the Heart was more concise, very comphrensible and corresponded with Last Anatomy textbook. Upper Limb Lectures wasn't as concise as Lectures on The Thorax( Heart). But I am very grateful to Lecturio for making my learning more simplified....

Lecturio is a great way to learn medicine.
By RANGANATHAN S. on 12. February 2017 for Upper Limb Anatomy

I liked the lectures very much . The in-depth classification of bones,muscles and associated systems surely was great. The clarity in voice and imaging helped me understand a great deal on appendicular skeleton . And i also scored great marks in the tests conducted on the topic anatomy of upper limbs at the university. Surely lecturio is the best choice for all medical U.G students. Thank you lecturio for your marvellous services.
