I've found you in youtube in one of the summary about Cardiovascular System. I'm a first year medical student and for me histology it's very difficult. As I've seen in your videos everything is perfectly explained. I'm using subtitles because sometimes you speak so fast but It's very interesting. I'm taking notes. I'm understanding better all topics!!!!! Thank you so much!

I like how it test me after awhile of listening
