Wonderful lectures with useful information, but the name is very misleading....does not even approach a "mini medical curriculum"
Great Lecture Series
This is a pretty informative lecture series. Not fully comprehensive but the instructors do make most of the lectures fun if your into science.
Thanks for presenting intelligent and intelligible information.
