I am an Undergraduate student and i didnt even read oncology subject, but this course not just start the beginer level , butt gradually it goes in depth and the flow of lectuures and topics is smooth
Excellent course for anyone interested in knowing more about the origin, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, even for beginners. Thanks to JHU for putting such an excellent course material together!

Very informational and a helpful introduction. Structured very well and is easy to complete assignments. However the quizzes sometimes ask for minute details that do not result in good retention of the information.
par Anna W C•
Pretty good, shorter than some other courses I've taken. I think it should be spiced up more because I almost fell asleep once and that the quizzes should be more difficult but other than that, great course.
par Nicole M•
I think this was a very good course and I definitely got out of it what I expected. I think anyone interested in advancing their knowledge on the general basics of cancer, this is a good place to start.
par Ishak Z•
I benefited hugely from this course although I don't have background in clinical practice. The introduction to Medical imagery was a little bit challenging for me, It could've been further simplified.

Thank you, it was a nice course, my first coursera. I find lectures quite general but definitely interesting. Good starting material. There is always space for improvement :)
par Amy C•
Good basic introduction to cancer biology, some of the information was a little dry but all in all worthwhile. Some prior knowledge of basic biological concepts needed.
par Jose A d A R•
Content is tailored to the general audience but a some lectures are spoken at a very high pace, which I though made it a bit difficult to catch all the information.
par Roberto L D•
It was a great course form my favorite university, thanks very much for giving us this types of courses, I would like to be tested as a free course, but I coudn't

This is a great course for those interested in gaining more basic clarity on this topic. I would recommend it to all with a need for more information on Cancer.
par Helen L•
If there is a more detail description about that different kind of the six most common cancers that would be great. The 10 hallmarks of cancers are very useful.
par stephanie a•
very good and insightful course.it has helped me a lot to gain understanding of basics in cancer biology even though i am an undergraduate biochemistry student.
par Matthew B•
The information in this course is great. I only wish the assessments were more comprehensive and challenging to test your true understanding of the material.
par Ranim A Z•
screening and treatment parts were hard for me because I'm not a specialist, yet the course is a perfect introduction for non-specialized interested people
par James R•
This course is a great introduction to the disease of cancer. An update to this course would be wonderful as it was completed in 2016. Very interesting.
par Sudarson B•
It is a basic course to get you interested in the field of cancer biology. Suitable for undergrads and above. The course delivered on what they promised.
par Alexander J S•
I did a module, just like this during my undergraduate days. Whilst I found it quite basic and just a refresher, the content is well presented and clear.
par Khin S O•
This is very interesting course of basic of cancelling pathway and the biology of cancer that can fundamental to the study of research of cancer. Thanks.
par Humera S•
It was very interesting. but the recent critiques of cancer Hallmarks and theories related to cancer heterogeneity should be included
par Ummi C•
The class was clear and concise. I was hoping to get more challenge and in depth explanation but it is indeed an introductory class.
par Aditya A D•
Tougher assignments and a final exam consisting of dummy experimental data to test the knowledge of the students would be welcome!
par Deleted A•
Its a good course that outlines the basics of cancer biology. Highly recommended for anyone interested in understanding cancer.
par Syed S A•
Should have two separate modules. from Week 5.
One for MBBS students and technologists. One for Higher Academicians
par Kazi T•
Some content could be a little more informative and rigorous. "Intro" essentially meant seeing the surface only.
