What's medical school actually like? Is it like college? High school? Work? How do you learn to be a doctor?I used to wonder this a lot in college. So, if you're not a medical student and you're like I was, you're curious about how this works!
90% of my time is spent with classes that are a lot like typical undergrad courses (not TAC classes!). The first year here is divided like this:
- Core Principles of Medicine (two "blocks," where "block" simply means half of a semester)
- "molecular medicine" (biochemistry, except relevant)
- Introduction to Disease
- microbiology (immunology, bacteriology, virology, parasitology, mycology)
Next year this will change slightly, so stay tuned!
