I was curious what classes the various schools schedule for the first semester.

At my school we take:
Anatomy (including embryology): 10 hrs
Histology: 5 hrs
Biochemistry: 5 hrs
Osteopathic Clinical Skills: 3 hrs

What do you guys take?

At SUNY-UB we are doing modules/systems approach. We just completed medicine and society (epidemiology and biostatistics), clinical practice of medicine, Foundations I (all the basic sciences rolled into one) until mid-Oct., Foundations II (mid-Oct. till December), Anatomy, and Histology.

What does SUNY consider to be the basic sciences?

I wonder which is worse, taking the short term modules or having everything at once for the whole semester?

Hey all!

Just finished my first week of classes (1st year) and very glad to have the long weekend to get a breathe and get even more on top of things : )

Anyway, I'm at MSUCOM and we take:
Anatomy
Physiology (includes histology)
Biochemistry for just over half of the semester
followed by Molecular Biology/Genetics
Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
Clinical Skills
Doctor/Patient Relationships

Piece of cake!! :)

It is tough, but it's also a very good program...and they really want you to succeed here. We're all one big stressed but happy family! Sounds corny but true.
By the way, we take all of our "basic" science classes with the allopathic students our first year. MSU is the only school that has such an arrangement.....the cooperation is pretty cool!
The only bummer is that we go pretty much year round (only about 4 weeks off, collectively, in the summer)...whereas our "sister" MD school gets most of the summer off.

Hang in there everyone,
Sue
