Dr. Gilchrist is AWESOME! He was so passionate about what he was teaching which made the class interesting. I took this class during the summer which made it more condensed and it was a little tough. Gilchrist gives plenty of bonus questions on tests and there's a bonus project worth 20 pts! Great teacher and class!

Dr. Gilchrist was an OK teacher. He's a tad bit boring but is knowledgable about Physiology. The key to passing his class is learning his slides. Everything he tests on comes directly from his slides. Learn them and you'll pass with flying colors! No book needed and attendance isn't mandatory because he posts his lectures on Blackboard.

Dr. Gilchrist keeps class very interesting to say the least. He is very knowledgable about the subject. Going to class helps, although it is not mandatory. Use his audio lectures! He does not ask a question on the test that does not talk about in his online audio lectures.

Highly recommend this teacher. His tests come from what he talks about during class, do not miss class. Keeps lectures interesting and engaging. His tests are challenging; but they teach you how to take exams outside of his class. I remember learning the most from his classes and even recalled the information throughout nursing school.

Dr. Gilchrist is one of the best professors I have encountered. He is very helpful and thorough. Anytime I had a question he was overly willing to assist and give detailed explanations. It would benefit you to visit his office if you have any questions about materials. I absolutely adore him and I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

I adored Dr.Gilchrist. He is very difficult but if you really study, you should have no problem. His notes are the holy grail so really pay attention. You will come out of his class smarter than when you came in. Get to know him, he is a really great guy.

The hardest class I ever took at UAB. I didn't understand his lectures. I feel like I went to class for nothing because I didn't obtain anything.

Dr. Gilchrist is an amazing professor. However, this class was difficult. You should be prepared to listen to the audio lectures. Although i did attend every lecture, listening to the audio was a big help on the quizzes and exams. Also, i wouldnt recommend reading the text, just skimming through the important sections. Also, DO THE BONUS PROJECT!!!

This class was hard. He threw a lot of information out at once with a lot of big words where you had to ask yourself was it really a real word. However, this guy will help you if you are in a bind. He has office hours which he encourages you to attend for one on one help. Good guy, confusing class.

He is all over the place. Gave more online lecture than in-class lecture. He often misspells and makes up words. I'm an A student and I struggled terribly with this class. He's the only professor so you just have to deal with him.
