Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great information! As a former back office medical assistant in busy family medicine practices, I have some practical knowledge of treating some illnesses in children. This course extends beyond my past knowledge. The MD--Dr. Roy Benaroch--has a very pleasant voice and manner, and is very interesting. I have watched the first ten lessons and am on the eleventh. I have only been watching for four days in between all my other work, reading, and activities. I look forward to watching it later today. Thank you for this course, as well as for the good price and speedy delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of Pediatric Grand Rounds As a physician who graduated from the medical school, Emory in Atlanta, where the professor of this course practices and teaches, I enjoyed this course greatly. The teacher is very orderly and clear and does a great job of putting the listener into the mind of a pediatrician. The ailments are well chosen and the unique nature of pediatric practice is well-described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Title caught my interest and modules cover a lot! I just bought this for myself as a Christmas gift and so happy I did! I've watched the first four modules and so far love it. I'm in my 50's and have already raised my two children. Now I have a 18 month old granddaughter and this course is so helpful. I definitely wished I had it 25 years ago!! The professor teaches very well and holds your attention with ease. I love the way he explains things and follows up. I highly recommend this to anyone with children or grandchildren.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be 10 stars I bought this for my granddaughter, who is in nurses training, based on it being FIVE stars by EVERY reviewer (have never seen that before). Also, the MD lecturer is from Emory U, where my granddaughter just graduated. I have so far watched only the first three lectures with her, and they are truly exemplary. His explanations on ear infections in children in lecture three is so clear on how to examine the child, what signs to look for, how to treat and how not to treat, probable causes, and the workings of the parts of the inner ear are so clear and interesting that I plan on watching all 24 lectures with her. The first two lectures are terrific also, but this one was so thorough I was transfixed, and I expect the same quality from the next 21 lectures. . I've bought six of these courses, and this is by far the best, as everyone else who bought it seems to agree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good overview and great detail Very interesting course. Making a diagnosis with the lecturer was engaging. Highly recommended for the new parent and parents with young children. Makes me glad I didn’t become a pediatrician. At 67 I am unlikely to become a new parent but I am going to pass the course along to my niece who has a toddler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Course All three of Dr. Benaroch's classes, including this one, are excellent. Dr. Benaroch obviously enjoys teaching, and devotes tremendous time and effort developing his courses. The content of his classes is priceless, and his presentation is flawless. I hope he does another class.
