I enjoy the connections you make
By Christy R. on 30. May 2019 for Folate Metabolism and Recycling

Dr. Ahern, I appreciate the pharmacological and pathophysiologic connections you make when delivering your lectures. It aids retention and usefulness. I am a nurse practitioner student and can also see the clinical connection. I have administered Methotrexate to many patients. Thank you.

Very good course
By Hatem Q. on 30. November 2018 for Vitamins

Vitamin section is fine, concerned vitamins explained clearly and easily However, some water soluble vitamins are considered missing (eg. thiamine, riboflavin, biotin, vitamin C ) although they might be encountered in some other subjects; such as nutrition. Additionally, minerals are not touched in these lecture series at all Overall, it is a very good course for the material targeted, but needs to fill the gap of missing items

Thank you!
