Orthopedic surgeon

I am practicing orthopedic surgeon. A 1971 graduate of Wayne State Medical school, I was exposed to very little molecular biology, almost no immunology. This course was an excellent compendium of both. I have dealt,diagnosed and treated all the disease states discussed and knew about immunology in a general way, picked up as I studied treatment of disease states. This course served several general themes for me 1st, a good basic introduction to immunology, 2nd a 1st hand look at the teaching didactics of a good prof/teacher's approach to modern day 3/4 year college students, 3rd a basic over view of modern molecular biology. I was disappointed that prof Beck did not discuss steroid, methotrexate COX, Asa, and prostaglandin influences on the system, but overall it was a good course well presented and recommended. I feel that completing this course will help me in understanding what's coming, what is and allow me a much better basic science understanding of my patients lab reports.Thank You Professor Beck

Awesome.

I'm about to start med school this summer, and while my undergraduate school does not offer immunology this year, I found these lectures to be an extremely useful tool to prepare myself.
