My medical school curriculum is divided into blocks based on organ systems. We've finished Core Principles of Medicine (I and II), Intro to Disease, Neuroscience and Hematology/Oncology.
Next, we embark upon five weeks of cardiology (cardiovascular-ology? anyway....) in the Cardiovascular block.
After that, we have Respiratory, Gastrointestinal, Reproductive/Endrocine (!!), and Musculoskeletal. (I might be missing one.)
The cardio block is distinguished by its weekly tests, mounds of physiology, and fast pace. Despite these terrors, it was rated "best block" by last year's M2's.
Here we go!
