  • The cerebral circulation,
  • The coronary circulation, and
  • The cutaneous circulation

Communicates at a good rate and audible tone ,explains concepts well to begginers and intermeddiate level students .Thank you!

Awesome explanation, and simple, straight to the point visualizations
By Shalita A. on 17. September 2017 for Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS) โ€“ Regulation of Ambulatory Blood Pressure (ABP)

This is such a confusing topic for me and most professors talk through it rather quickly. I appreciate how he connected the dots in a way that has been much easier to understand than the other lectures I have listened to. This is the only explanation that stuck! Kudos, and thanks a million!

It really helps

Very good course, it explians well many things, but maybe it cpuld be a little more specific

By Melissa T. on 26. December 2016 for Vascular Physiology

Good clear. Covered high yield concepts. The professor uses good visuals but they equations could be refined (e.g., all fractions written top and bottom)
