TOP REVIEWS FROM MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY AND EVALUATION
Medical technology and evaluation in this course come under the specialization of healthcare market place specialization..I gained knowledge about the medical technology
Good content. But, I expected this course to be about technical analysis of medical technology rather than just cost, benefit, or effectivity analysis.
Pretty good I though there was a bit to much overlap with Course 3, and I thought the assignment was a bit nebulous
very useful course, amazing explanation. I wish luck for every one learn it.
