Exercise and Cardiovascular Function
Summer 2023 - Big fan of Esdin. His lectures were super interesting and engaging. He made learning a lot about particular diseases easy and manageable. The biggest difficulty I had with the class was with exams. Sometimes he would provide quizzes where I felt I could have benefited from a slightly longer time. His exams were also difficult in the sense that he has a bank of questions and sometimes the questions correspond to details he never mentioned. Because of that you really have to grind for your grade. Workload was super manageable. The paper was interesting and doesn’t require too much time.
Professor Garfinkel is very concerned with student learning, and goes beyond his call of duty to ensure that the student fully understands and appreciates the deep concepts that he teaches. Dr. Garfinkel is more than a professor who teaches- he is a superhuman, absolutely brilliant combination of both inspiring lecturer, and genius. Most brilliant minds are unable to simplify difficult concepts for the masses, but every word of Dr. Garfinkel combines to simplify the most difficult of concepts (chaos theory, bifurcations, various models) If I could take him every quarter, I would. You must take his classes.
