TOP REVIEWS FROM PHARMACEUTICAL AND MEDICAL DEVICE INNOVATIONS
Good content and presentation overall. But verbal communication could be better. Some important parts of the course are barely discernible. Overall good job. Thanks Steve!
Very useful to get the domain knowledge about pharmaceutical and medical devices field; markets ranging both in the USA and globally. Gained immense knowledge b taking this course. Thank you.
It's very important and interesting course. It helped me a lot and i gained great knowledge in that field which will enable me to join it.
Really helpful, I thought the assignment could have used a bit more concrete applied knowledge instead of just using a search engine to research a drug with provided links.
