I’ll go ahead and say it: last semester was pretty weird. Frankly, I’m just glad it’s over. I learned some valuable lessons, but they came with a heavy dose of hard knocks.
One bad semester won’t break me, though. Today, a new dawn broke over my academic life. A new semester has arrived, and I’m really excited about my new schedule. Here’s an outline of the classes I’m taking, and what I hope to get out of them:
- Macroscopic anatomy – Gross Anatomy or topographical anatomy: This is officially my first real medical class, no more introduction no more pre-med, this is the real deal. I’m hoping to really understand the human body in general. I have heard alot about this class the huge amount of material, the awful testing and of course working with corpses. Yep I am pumped and ready to dig in.Hopefully I wont be a fainter.
- Neuroanatomy:I must say I am not as excited about this one. The human nervous system is very complicated and I suspect this class will be. Gonna have to hunker down and study. Already thinking about the all nighters I will be pulling for this one. Can’t wait!
- Embriology: The study of the development of an embryo from the fertilization of the ovum to the fetus stage. Got to get thru it, got to get thru it, that’s all I’m gonna say about that one. Lets just say gynecology and urology are not on my short list for specialties.
- Microscopic Anatomy – Histology: The study of the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues. Looking forward to this one too. I am amazed at what an awesome structure the human body is and microscopic anatomy is an amazing testament and offers and amazing study of that structure and how it functions. As long as I don’t have to draw anything I’ll be happy.
Well, there it is ,four classes , 40 hours a week in class. 5A.M to 7P.M Monday to Friday. And still hoping to get one class in on Saturdays. Now that I have some real, published goals, it’s time to work, well one more week of fun and then work!
Thank you all for making this possible for me. Look for more updates on my progress!!!
