    I am a mathematician who is primarily researching in mathematical control theory, who wanted to have a broader overview of epidemiology necessarily with biological aspects and mathematical epidemiology. This course was very helpful! I definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning epidemiology with possible directions of further studies and research. I make this an opportunity to thank everybody who taught the course and put everything together. Excellent job!

    It is a really good course if you know how to organize your time. I suggest you to print first all the presentations and you can save time. I think if you take just 20min at day listening classes and doing the final test, you will learn a lot. IMPORTANT print to life cycle to understand better. I found some mistakes but I give 5 stars because all of them did a great job. (sorry about my English, im learning yet).

    The instructors state in the beginning, that they put a lot of effort into making this course fun... And it was! The course provides an overview on history of emergence and treatment of infectious diseases as well as developments and future considerations for prevention and treatment. The information is explained very well and supported by very entertaining animations, which help to memorize the course material. The additional readings and videos provided each week were informative and offered increased understanding of each topic. This was the 8th course I completed on Coursera, and eventhough I enjoyed all, this the only one I rated with 5 stars. Enjoy!

    Well-developed course with excellent content and a good variety of basic science and clinical content. An excellent overview for first-time learners of parasitology, or a good quick refresher for those who have encountered the subject before. The course's particular strength is the wonderful faculty from Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College, whose field trips to see vector habitats in vivo help bring the basic science to life. I strongly recommend this course!

    医学寄生虫学课程既包括了丰富的寄生虫理论知识,又为我们提供了大量的临床案例、实验探究、科研前沿甚至社会新闻,让学习者能在系统掌握知识的基础上运用知识。近年来,寄生虫类疾病在我国发病逐渐减少,但还是时有发生,需要引起医务工作者的重视。这门课程的学习能够引起大家对寄生虫类疾病的重视。

    This is an excellent course for medical students to learn parasitology. Not only will Prof. Wu teach us basic knowledge clearly and solidly, but she will also combine different teaching pattern to achieve the best performance. I learned more than medical knowledge. Anyone who take interest in parasitology or infectious diseases should have a look!

    All in all, this is really a 5-star course! Fantastic!

    从寄生虫进入人体或动物,建立寄生关系,最后发展为寄生虫病等,我一直都对寄生虫学有浓厚的兴趣。老师的讲解细致又生动,不仅在寄生虫学科对我们的帮助很大,对其他医学知识领域也是一种很有帮助的补充。希望这样的课程多一些,这样的老师也多一些!

    Excellent course! Doctors are great and despite Chinese, difficult to understand at times, it does not take away the brilliance of the course or the content presented! Thank you

    This lesson offers a broad and concise view of common medical parasites, with routine test and case discussion.

    As someone with a laboratory background, I would have liked to have seen more about lab methods, particularly microscopic differentiation of helminth ova and larvae. I hope these experts consider creating a second course at some point with some more rare stuff (e.g. pentastomiasis, gnathostomiasis), and also maybe some fundamental topics of parasitology (morphology, life cycles, immunology / methods of immune system evasion). A veterinary (or zoology) parasitology course would be also be very interesting and relevant. Sincerest thanks to the course providers!

    I majored in entomology and completed several graduate level courses in entomology more than two decades ago. I decided to take up this course mainly to examine the quality of the content and it is really well made, keeping the interest of the complete outsider and providing a great overview. I cannot but recommend this to all those who have have an interest in insect life but have either not chosen to study entomology or have been unable to do so.

    This was an exceptionally well presented course, one of the very best Coursera courses I have completed so far. The instructors were not only extremely knowledgeable, they were also very enthusiastic and capable presenters. The course programme was very well constructed and presented a wealth of information in a very accessible format. I learnt a lot and have rediscovered my love for entomology.

    This was the most comprehensive course! Not only did I get a very in-depth education about arthropods, but learning about Integrated Pest Management was enlightening and opened my eyes to the many ways in which we can avoid using chemical pesticides in favor of nature's pest control. Loved it. Planning on returning to the lectures many times in the future to cement this knowledge in my mind.
