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?August 26, 2002 at 4:19 am #44026futr_babyDOcParticipant
At NYCOM we take:
Anatomy (including Embryo and Histo)
OMM (Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine)August 28, 2002 at 4:19 am #44027ttmonsterParticipant
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?August 31, 2002 at 4:17 am #44029DO2BParticipant
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:
Physiology (includes histology)
Biochemistry for just over half of the semester
followed by Molecular Biology/Genetics
Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
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,

At the Joan C. Edwards SOM at Marshall University, we are taking in the fall semester:
Introduction to Patient Care
total: 23 credit hours
Keep on keepin’ on….September 15, 2002 at 7:49 pm #44032elisemomof3Participant
At OSUCOMPH (columbus, ohio) We are on quarters. This quarter, we are taking a load of 24 credit hours, including:
Anatomy: lecture, lab, clinical case correlates. This is the major portion of the 24 credit hours 12-15 lab hours, 5 lecture hours
Embryology: 2 hour-long lectures per week
Patient Centered medicine: ~1 hour per week, including introduction to medical ethics, professionalism, and palliative care
CAPS: I forget what this stands for 😮 Basically one hour of lecture per week covering biostatistics, infectious disease, and epidemiology.
Biochemistry and other stuff will begin in November following the end (yahoo!) of anatomy. Good luck all!

Okay, my brain is on today, lol. Referring to my previous post, CAPS stands for Clinical Analysis and Problem Solving.
