ALEXANDER ALBA, PA-C

STEVE KUIJPERS, RN

Good bird's eye view of the most relevant classes of antibiotics. Conspicuously missing from the bill is metronidazole which is in common use across the globe and features on the World Health Organization's list of essential medicines. I would love to see a video on anti-fungals/anti-parasite drugs. Steve Netherlands

CAROLINE TREMBLAY

MUNIBA KHAN, MD

BRUCE STIRLING

AMY FOUGHT, MD

DAVID TENTLER

Somewhat helpful but not enough for my dental school classes. More quiz questions would be helpful, and having more than just two options would make them even better. I think these courses are good for someone going through EMT training or even nursing school, but definitely not doctorate level courses.

ERIN OCEGUEDA

DINESHA WEERASINGHE

it was good but did not talk about classification.

YASSIR MATLOOB

Basically necessary viewing for anyone who works with antibiotics. In every hospital I've been in, antibiotic guidelines are set up by microbiology and most of us are happy to follow them without really understanding why we're using certain drugs and not others. This helps clear up some common questions that most people don't want to be the ones to ask.

DR. KIRAN SANDHU

VENUS ALBARRACIN, RN

Excellent. Clear, direct, to the point

CHRIST ANGE KATCHE

I wished the videos were a little longer and more in-depth. Overall, they were easy to follow, explicitly put and concise to a fault. Thank you for your time.

REGINA KING, NP

Excellent course. I learned more in this course about antibiotics than I have in any other training course I've taken.

DR. ALEXANDRINA HARANGUS

It was very useful and clear for me

JO HOFFMAN

Just the facts in easy to follow format. Gives you important information on each antibiotic class with the associated clinical presentations.

DONNA SCHARCH

DONNA MEYER

Superb consolidation of information.

SZILVIA KOCSI

DR KIRAN MUTHE

Very nice.Concepts clearly explained.

DR. AHMED YOUNES

The course is so great at giving an idea about the most important points in each class of antibiotics .. making the coverage and interactions so clear especially between agents of the same group. It will be of great help to those who are going through board exams and it will make you shine during morning rounds as well :) I would recommend giving an intro lecture enumerating the mechanism of action of the different groups of antibiotics in 1 diagram ( I remember something like that in USMLE step 1 books .. was really helpful). Also a brief idea about gram positives and gram negatives and why each antibiotic will do better for each one .. this would have been helpful. But overall .. it absolutely deserves the 5 stars.

ALI SULTAN

SHARON MAIEWSKI, PA

This series is excellent. A nice addition would be a summary overview to include coverage, most common usage, and side effects/CIs.

MAHA LUKMAN

It is well established and very easy to understand and memorize. Thanks

MOHAMMED ALBAGHOLY

SARA CARNES COSTELLO, NP

Best lecture on antibiotics to date. Thanks for offering these learning opportunities.

MANUEL SUAREZ, MD

Helpful at all levels for medical students to residents and practicing md's

YONAS RARU

This is an amazing course. It simplifies a lot of complicated stuff about antibiotics - I really loved it. I'd highly recommend it to any medical professional, and recommending it to my friends as well.
