Alexis is taking this course right now, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
It is an eye opener for me. The course reveals the complexity involved in treating bacterial infections. More people should take this class not just medical personnel.

I am fascinated by all things medical. This class was very interesting and informative. Biofilms are a bit scary. It was a great reminder to me to take care of the body I have.
