  • Shikha Talesara, Certificate Course in Basic Nutrition - '18

    Like the course and every content is explained beautifully, only thing missing is you guys should provide hard copy of the course also for students who are interested in buying.

  • Dr. Mahavir Pannalal Nakel, Certificate Course in Basic Nutrition - '18

    Contents are too good and informative, only thing is, when we read course content on mobile, diagrammatic content/ font size is too small…can there be a technique of zoom for these contents…(if possible).

  • Dr. Nikhil Paritkar, Certificate Course in Basic Nutrition - '18

    I am enjoying current course. At first I thought its very easy and it doesnt seem to have that much knowledge depth. But as the course is progressing, the depth of the course and knowledge is also increasing. I am in love with content of video lectures particularly case studies. I would love to attend more and more video lectures.

  • Kartika Shah, Certificate Course in Basic Nutrition - '18

    A wise decision to join this course through Medvarsity as the course is giving in depth knowledge about the subject along with the facility to study from home at my convenience without disturbing the routine practice and managing other equally important things as study.
