Very helpful course on diagnosis & management on certain diseases. Content is basic but the explanation is thorough and there are also supplementary readings. The quizzes can be quite difficult.

This course is very easy to understand and the way you arranged the topics was good. I had only one problem, it was regarding the reading that was to be done from external sources, it was helpful but that could have been included in the videos or there should have been a summary available. Apart from this the questions where very good it was like real life situation and it made me think the way I would act in the real life. Thank you for your hard work.

Very good course, everything is well explained with relevant and appropriate diagrams. However there were a few technical flaws but I'm certain they will be fixed

A lot to learn but presented very well. Test questions definitely make you think about all you have learned.

I love the courses by the University of Colorado but I really find it "impulsive" dealing with online system that keep doing something called solicitation into my email account with ridiculous reminders of assignments that need to be completed. Also I don't care about other students completing the course in a fast manner, that may mean they know how to use skill, but not when to use it. The whole purpose of these courses is to improve a person strategy, not just to be another "Yes man" Please remove non-essential tasks such as statistics, that is my suggestion.

Tests and quizes continue to have wrong information. Coursera does not want to fix these problems rather they want to argue with students that they are wrong.
