Comment:
Absolutely amazing guy, just a really sweet man. The only reason I didn't give him a 5 is because I don't vibe with his online teaching style-- sharing slides and talking through them. His exams are HARD and you have to put lots of work in but I am still super glad I took the class. If he wasn't such a bean, I'd hate the class though lol.

Who else will come to class dressed as Mr. Rogers and then start a lecture on the reproductive system? But seriously, Drushel is one of the best professors I've had at Case. He's super thorough and cares about his students' success.

Comment:
Doesn't use any slides, so students have to find all their own figures and pictures of relevant anatomy. Textbook figures are helpful, but text is more detailed than you need to know. Test material is almost entirely from his lecture notes, which you have to write down fast before he erases them. Lab practicals are a pain! Very responsive by email.

Comment:
He is a very quirky man but is really knowledgeable of his expectations as a professor and for the student. He makes lectures enjoyable and is straightforward about the difficulty in the class. He will approach you if you are struggling with personal issues and will make the right accommodations. Very empathetic and enthusiastic outside of lecture.

This is one my my favorite classes I have taken at Case so far. Dr. Drushel gives you a clear cut picture of what he expects you to know for the exams, and really wants everyone to do well. He gives you a lot of resources, and if you go over your lecture notes and use the resource room you'll definitely get at least a B. 10/10 recommend!

Vert is probably not as good as you might expect, but Drushel is one of the few who really cares about you learning the material. Expect to put in time after lab, but Drushel will def overestimate how much extra time you need. Drushel wants you to learn and hes great at teaching and helping you as long as you do the work, which is a lot.

The best professor I have had at Case so far. He really wants everyone to do well and makes the lectures fun. As long as you go to the resource room and go to lecture, you'll definitely get a B. To get an A, you should study a little every day. It is not a class you can cram for. There are 8 exams but they aren't hard if you take the time to study,

Had him for anatomy and he's my adviser. Pretty hard class but his really straight-forward notes make it easy to do well. As long as you always come to class and review notes at least once, its pretty easy to get As on his tests. Really loved the way he taught the course- never boring. As an adviser, he is a rockstar. Request him if you can.

The worst class I've taken at Case. Hands-down. I mean, 8 big exams for a 3-credit course?! The fact that he doesn't show slides or pictures in an ANATOMY class?! Avoid this class, unless you want to literally work on anatomy for 3 hours a day. I took this with biochem, and it just about killed me. Again, worst class at Case.

Notes are taken off the board without powerpoints/other technology... make sure you pay attention or you will miss things. THE BOOK IS A MUST- you will need it to fill in holes. Overall okay guy, not my personal favorite.

Really nice guy. He really wants to help his students and he genuinely loves teaching nursing students. If you want to do well in his class, at least do the homework problems. They help you to understand the material.

Amazing course! He wants to see everyone excel. Lab practicals are straight forward and as long as you know what you dissected you should be fine. More than willing to help when time allows outside of the class period.

I currently have him for anatomy and he's great! He lets you know what will be on the exams---he's definitely not out to dick you over. Very accessible and an allaround fun guy with whom to converse.

He tries so hard to keep students interested in what we are learning. It really makes you want to do your best just to make him happy! He really is a good teacher, though. There are "post-mortem" surveys after tests to see if people thought tests were fair. He is so attentive to students!

Drushel is an excellent and very driven teacher. I didn't understand what the heck I was supposed to do for the lab journal, but I think that was just me.
