Although introductory, I do carry out reviews as a researcher. I Learned a lot to improve my systematic reviews through this course. High quality, though the music could be a little less intense.

Sometimes there are typos in the text. I think the Pubmed slides need to be updated to what it looks like today.

It extensively covered points around SR and MA. Though I was hoping for more contents around numerical analysis.

Another module about working with RevMan or running meta-analysis in STATA would further enhance the course.
