Excellent but different groups need different depth of presented topics. You can probably create different programs for future exam takers,medical students, doctors taking Board Exam or Recertification,etc. The quality is great. Excellent speaker with very well spoken English.

I am a premed student taking A&P. I thought that this would be a little harder to follow because I thought it was aimed at med students but surprisingly it wasn't! A lot of things were repeated throughout the lectures that really reinforced the topic. I am also a very visual learner and often incorporate illustrations in my notes so the colorful drawings really appealed to me. Overall a highly recommended lecture. Excellent work, Doc!

Overall a great lecture. I have a question though. I looked up Harrison and found that NSAIDs and ACEI are categorized as prerenal renal failure. (According to Harrison, NSAIDs cause loss of vasodilatory prostaglandins, which in turn increases afferent resistance. ACEI causes loss of angiotensin II action, which reduces efferent resistance. Both decreases GFR.)
