It was an amazing course throughout and a special appreciation to the meticulous surgery modules which manged to cover the entirety of the procedures and still managed to be short and crisp.

This was a good review of transgender-specific medicine. The discussion board has been abandoned by the course authors. It would be nice to be able to post questions and read the answers by the practitioners of the course. Even if it was just in the first year of it being posted. Why have a forum if there is no help?

A great introductory set of lectures to transgender medicine. Sensitively worded, and also creating sensitivity in students. Good overview.

The only thing I wish were different is that it wasn't very interactive and the lecturers were reading from slideshows.

I would have preferred more in depth assessments. Some questions were asked before content has been covered. I found the content of the course informative and on level adequate for primary care.
